LGBTQ+ Pride Month - Wednesday June 2

Jun 3, 2021

June is known as Pride Month to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community. In Connecticut, Governor Ned Lamont signed an act that updates the state's parentage laws. Senior staff attorney Polly Crozier from GLAD (GLBTQ Legal Advocates and Defenders) talks with Dara Kennedy and Maya Shwayder on how this new law is a boost for same-sex parents and where gay rights are headed.

Dr. William Leap, a professor of women, gender, and sexuality studies and author of Language Before Stonewall, breaks down the history of the acronym LGBTQIA.
