  • 2024-05-01 - Political Patience, The Long Game

    1 MAY. 2024 · Jonny and Heather discuss some good legislative and judicial news for LGBTQ+ folks, including Biden EOs that explicitly include LGBTQ+ folks in Title IX and the Affordable Care Act. We also look at a good decision on trans health coverage from the fourth district court of appeals and great news about Maine becoming a transgender and reproductive health sanctuary state. Across all of these stories, we recognize the benefit of waiting and the patience to get the legislation right, even at a time when we want immediate action. We end the show with some exciting news about returing drag queens--one excellent, one quite quite sketchy.
