AUSTIN, Texas (KEYE) - Actress Sara Ramirez, star of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," joined groups rallying for LGBTQ equality at the Texas Capitol on Monday.

Ramirez was joined by members of the Texas LGBTQ and faith communities, along with representatives from the ACLU of Texas, Equality Texas, Human Rights Campaign, Texas Freedom Network, and Transgender Education Network of Texas.

In a speech, Ramirez took aim at SB 6, Texas' so-called "bathroom bill," calling it "a solution in search of a problem."

Demonstrators gathered to advocate for policies that would "improve the lives of LGBTQ Texans and to speak out against legislative proposals that would amount to state-sanctioned discrimination."
