After a long fight, President John F. Kennedy introduced a bill, to the Senate, that would change civil rights and labor laws in the United States. In November of 1963, President Lyndon B. Johnson finalized and signed into law the landmark bill that prohibits unequal application of voter registration requirements, racial segregation in schools, employment, and public accommodations. This Summer, the Trump administration challenged the Supreme Court to rule that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 doesn’t protect gay people in the workplace. 

On this episode of Gay USA, hosts Andy Humm and Ann Northrop discuss the Trump administration's attempt to codify anti-LGBT discrimination, and much more.
