Because my guests live in different time zones, they were interviewed separately, instead of as a panel, so this week’s podcast is a bit different, and by necessity, longer, than my previous diversity and inclusion podcasts. I will be speaking with three exceptional humans who are members of the LGBT community. As such, they live with discrimination and inequities every single day by just living their lives, being themselves and loving whom they love. I know many of you believe in equal rights for the LBGT community. Those who oppose them, have likely not had conversations to understand what life is like for them. Some of you may agree with the concept of equal rights for the LGBT community in principle, but you may not be in touch with today’s LGBT community, as the conversation and language is always evolving. This podcast is one way to hear today’s conversations. Listen in, be an ally and help tear down barriers of inequities and discrimination.
