In a landmark decision, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights law of 1964 does indeed protect LGBTQ people from workplace discrimination on the basis of sex.

The ruling comes as a welcome victory in the midst of Coronavirus Pandemic and the fight against police violence with the Black Lives Matter protest.

Are we finally overcoming centuries of oppression or will there be a backlash. Is this a rainbow breaking through grey clouds, or are we just in the eye of the storm?

Today we take a look at the momentous Supreme Court Ruling extending employment protections to all LGBTQ people, and Chicago’s Drag March for Change, where thousands gathered to protest systemic racism in the gay neighborhood of Boystown.
