As I write this, the Supreme Court has just ruled that LGBTQ workers are protected under federal employment discrimination law.
At the time of this writing, 89,564 people have died from COVID-19 in the U.S. An uninterrupted moment of silence for each person would last 62 days. And yet there is no state of national mourning, which is the loudest thing I have ever heard.
I'm old enough to remember when the President of the United States wasn't an incurious moron recklessly obsessed with his own image. And this is the man in charge during the worst public health epidemic in recent memory.
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.
