GAYBC Happy Hour | Original Date: August 17, 2023

It’s another riveting episode of the GAYBC Happy Hour with your hosts Richie Roy, Johnny Mac, and Chick Maxson. In this thought-provoking installment, we delve deep into the latest headlines surrounding transgender bills that are shaking the nation. From the federal judge blocking Idaho's restrictive legislation to Indiana parents grappling with unexpected classroom changes, we dissect the impact of these laws on the LGBTQ+ community and society at large.

As the conversation flows, we touch on a poignant incident involving a First grader in Conroe, Texas, whose reaction to a multi-racial poster ignites a discussion about the roots of indoctrination. A spotlight is cast on a Trump-appointed judge mandating Southwest Airlines' lawyers to undergo "religious liberty training," a move sparking debates over LGBTQ rights. The legal arena is further explored with a potential Supreme Court-bound case featuring a Catholic couple denied foster parent approval due to their views on transgender and non-binary individuals.

Adding to the vibrant discourse, we're thrilled to welcome comedian, author, actor, and filmmaker Craig Chester as our special guest. As the 18th anniversary of his film Adam & Steve approaches, we gain insights into his journey, along with a sneak peek at the highly anticipated Palm Springs reunion in August. Our hosts infuse their signature snap, crackle, and pop as they unravel the annoying tangle surrounding Stephen Miller's America First Legal organization's stance on Kellogg's LGBTQ-friendly cereal marketing.

Tune in for a cocktail of candid conversations, insightful analyses, and heartfelt moments on the GAYBC Happy Hour. Cheers to diversity, inclusivity, and the power of open dialogue! Your calls are welcome, too!
