On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
President Biden’s executive order extending nondiscrimination protections to LGBTQ people has been widely celebrated by human rights advocates. Alphonso David, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said it was “the most substantive, wide-ranging executive order concerning sexual orientation and gender identity ever issued by a United States president.”
Additionally, the Biden administration reversed a Trump-era ban on transgender people in the military.
We’ll talk about what these protections will actually look like in practice. And we’ll discuss the current status of the Equality Act — which would expand protections for LGBTQ people and others even further by making them federal law.
