Anti-LGBTQ politics

Tune in for this Morning Joe conversation with Jonathan Lemire, Mike Barnicle and GLAAD President/CEO Sarah Kate Ellis about the current anti-LGBTQ political sentiment that has led to a record 540-plus anti-LGBTQ bills introduced in state legislatures and more than 220 bills that specifically target transgender and non-binary people. “These are obviously terribly turbulent cultural times, but was there a spark…a moment in the last ten years or so when there was such a violent and hysterical overreaction to drag shows, LGBTQ clothing?” asks Barnice. Hear Ellis’ response, as she explains “Whenever there’s progress, there is a snap back reaction to it.” Watch the segment here.
