Transphobia In A Suit

In the third episode of the TransLash Media’s mini-series The Anti-Trans Hate Machine, Imara investigates the influence the Heritage Foundation had in infusing anti-trans ideology into the government during Trump’s presidency—a legacy the Biden administration is still trying to unravel. Through that investigation, Imara shares what she’s learned about one man who orchestrated many of those attacks on trans rights. Plus, we hear the stories of two brave women fighting against one of the most vicious attacks and suing the government to make sure trans people have equal access to healthcare.  You can connect with us on social media!

In episode 2 of 4 of The Anti-Trans Hate Machine mini-series, we investigate and uncover the forces and organizations responsible for the reinforcement of bills meant to ban trans youth from access to life-saving and equal healthcare - starting specifically with Alabama’s SB 219 (2020) - Prohibits Gender Affirming Care Bill.

In the opening episode for TransLash Media’s riveting new mini-series, our trusted award-winning journalist Imara Jones introduces us to a key component of the anti-trans hate machine through a historic case: Hecox v. Little. She walks us through the introduction to HB 500, the law that made Idaho the first state to ban transgender athletes participating in sports, and the investigation that quickly followed suit. We hear from aspiring college athlete Lindsay Hecox, as well as Ritchie Eppink, the Legal Director of the ACLU of Idaho, and Chase Strangio, Deputy Director for Transgender Justice, who aided her through her case. And Imara receives an unexpected surprise when Idaho Representative Barbara Ehardt, the sponsor of the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act (HB 500), takes her call. In the end we learn about the organization behind these bills, a far-right group called Alliance Defending Freedom. You can connect with us on social media!
