Threats and advances in LGBTQ+ rights, and issues of gender and sexual orientation in Maine
As part of our coverage of Pride Month, we talk with leading attorney and civil rights advocate Mary Bonauto about what is being done to prepare for the potential threat to gay marriage and other LGBTQ+ rights in this country, given the Supreme Court’s current moves toward overturning Roe v. Wade. We’ll also talk with Equality Maine’s Gia Drew to learn about the status of rights for LGBTQ+ Mainers, and what progress has been made statewide.
