This evening Queer News Tonight brings you Admiral Dr. Rachel Levine. She is America’s first 4 star trans Admiral and the first trans Senate confirmed cabinet member. Tonight Levine talks about the history of Senate confirmation and Rand Paul’s attempt to block her, and then what Levine offered to do for him. She discusses the health challenges that are being created because of the politicization of health and her nomination. Discussion includes midterm elections, culture wars and using trans as a political wedge and the critical health disparities for the LGBTQI+ community. She discusses the growing fear in the trans & broad LGBTQI+ community and the support she directly sees from the White House, President Biden and Vice President Harris.
Tomorrow we will bring you Part 3 where Admiral Levine talks about the LGBTQ+ Community and if the L, the G, the B and the Q are doing enough for the T. Also hear her comments on #IStandWithLesbians and #CisWithTheT and the controversy over Dave Chappelle. Her words about our community will surprise you.
