The New Culture War with GLAAD's Sarah Kate Ellis Your Political Playlist

    • News

After a shoutout from Taylor Swift on Twitter, GLAAD's President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis joins Emily to talk about policies needed to advance LGBTQ+ rights, as well as the importance of the Equality Act, which sits in Congress.

This month the LGBTQ+ community and allies across the world celebrate Pride Month. It’s a month of celebration and a reflection of Stonewall. Over 50 years ago, trans women led the riot that many recognize as the tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement. Now, the very same people that led the movement are still being targeted and attacked by the conservative Right. This new culture war perpetuated by Republicans has led to a record amount of legislation targeting trans youth.
