The Mess Episode 4

Anti-Trans Bans from Idaho to New York

Episode Description

It’s been a rollercoaster of legal battles over anti-trans bans across the U.S., and the results are a mixed—and messy—bag. In this episode, Imara looks at how the Supreme Court is playing along with Christian nationalist schemes to ban gender affirming care for minors in Idaho. On the other side of the country, a win for equal access to athletic facilities in Nassau County, New York spells trouble, and a little bit of hope, for trans protections in blue states. Plus, what Iran’s missile attack on Israel means for President Biden’s road to reelection.
