From sodomy laws to gay marriage, to the right to use the bathroom that corresponds to your gender, legal cases have played a large role in the lives of LGBTQ people for centuries. While we’ve made many strides, there is still a long way to go to reach full equality under the law, and there are always those bigoted goblins looking to push us way the hell back. Lawyer Megan Harney joins us on this new episode to dyke out about current court cases that will have an impact on the community, and Carolyn finds a way to work Ally McBeal into the conversation. But before we tackle the heavy stuff, we dyke out about Legos, the movie My Girl, and Macaulay Culkin’s unmatched child acting skills.
Ever want to dyke out with someone for all of eternity? It’s not for everyone, but there are still a lot of people in the LGBTQ community who want to enter the traditional institution of marriage. Comedian Jess Salomon joins twice-married-Carolyn and will-marry-for-the-registry-Sarah to talk about same-sex marriage! Why do it? What’s the best thing about being married? We also discuss the fight for marriage equality in Australia (and how we think their political system works), super-predator Harvey Weinstein, and the pro-death culture of the United States.
