Black Trans Activist Raquel Willis Talks with The Sunday Show on MSNBC About Murders of Trans Neighbors, Ties to White Supremacy and Anti-LGBTQ Legislation Nationwide

MSNBC Covers Murder of Trans Women

I was so pleased with this segment – that Jonathan Capehart scheduled it and with the points Raquel Willis brought up, especially firmly connecting the dots between the anti-LGBTQ legislation (“Don’t Say Gay”, criminalizing transition, etc) and the epidemic of violent terror systemically murdering trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming neighbors – especially Black trans women […]

Watch: Yolanda Renee King, MLK’s granddaughter, talks with Rev Al Sharpton about her activism

The best thing of the weekend was this exchange. When Yolanda Renee King said “Hi Uncle Al, thank you for having me on your show,” my heart swelled.

Granted we have the lowest tier of channel options, but it […]

LGBTQ&A: La’Tasha Mayes and The Power of ‘The Two’

An occasional series where we pose some questions to local LGBTQ folks (and Allies) to learn more about their personal experiences with LGBTQ culture. Click here for a complete list of all LGBTQ&A profiles.
