Last week I sat down with TransLash Media creator Imara Jones to talk about the current, highly calculated disinformation campaign against trans people, what these laws and this political landscape mean for the LGBTQ+ community, and the need to move potential allies to action. As it was Trans Day of Visibility last Friday—and the launch of Season Two of TransLash's The Anti-Trans Hate Machine podcast—this conversation could not have come at a more appropriate time.
We typically offer full OptOutcast episodes to recurring donors to OptOut, but we're putting this one out there for everyone. It's so important.
Imara and her award-winning team at TransLash have done some of the most thorough investigations into the shadowy groups that have been strategically attacking trans and other LGBTQ+ people for decades. We are fortunate to have TransLash on the OptOut roster of financially independent news outlets!
Listen to the new Season Two of The Anti-Trans Hate Machine.
