Fat activists cheered as Mayor Adams signed a bill banning weight discrimination in New York City.
Earlier this month the New York City council passed a bill that makes it illegal to discriminate against weight.
People applying for housing or employment cannot be discriminated against for their height or weight.
Public accommodations were also included in the bill.
