Pride Month gives us all a chance to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and reflect on what has been done, and what still must be done, to achieve full equality for LGBTQ+ people. Pride also commemorates the Stonewall Riots of June 1969, which were led by trans women of color in response to police violence towards LGBTQ+ patrons at the Stonewall Inn. On this week’s Generation Progress takeover of the Leslie Marshall Show, guest hosts Edwith Theogene and Charlotte Hancock are joined by Nadine Smith, the Executive Director of Equality Florida, and Dr. Lourdes Ashley Hunter, the Executive Director of the Trans Women of Color Collective, to discuss the particular significance of this Pride month—including the Supreme Court decision on Tile VII and recent nationwide protests against systemic racism and state-sanctioned violence.
