LGBT Protections and Equality
In conjunction to Pride Month, the discussion around this episode of Stay Tuned is to inform the community of the issues that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) individuals face, the resources that they and their families have in this region, and what is happening on a national and statewide front to provide and insure equality for all members of our community.
We know that Missourians are interested in fair play. A lot of people think, ‘Well, we’ve had anti-discrimination laws for years. So gay and lesbian people, transgendered people must be protected.’ When they find out that they’re not, I think that offends their sense of fairness.” – Jeffery Mittman
