As I write this, the Supreme Court has just ruled that LGBTQ workers are protected under federal employment discrimination law.
I'm writing this on June 1, the beginning of Pride month. Simultaneously, across the country, people are protesting, and tensions are escalating over the issue of racism.
June may be Pride Month, but it isn't official anymore. Not since Donald Trump became the president. He has never issued an official proclamation declaring June Pride month.
Even if you know in your heart of rainbow hearts that the president of the United States and the cretins who work for him hate you, you might not realize that this administration is always busy working to further harm LGBTQ people.
Welp, the Supreme Court issued its abortion ruling that everyone has been bracing themselves for and as it turns out. Wait, reproductive rights won? But Kavanaugh. But Gorsuch.
I am thinking of changing the title of this column to "Dispatches from Hell" because I truly feel like every week is just another barrage of awful news stories, most of them with Trump at the center. And SO MANY PEOPLE ARE DYING.
Corporate America, man. Who knew they had the power to do seemingly impossible things like getting the Washington football team that uses a racial slur as a goddamn mascot to change its name?
We still aren't doing enough testing despite Trump's assertions that we do more testing than anywhere else in the world, and if we just didn't test so damn much, we wouldn't have so many cases.
