391: Matt Easton’s Valedictorian Speech, Georgia & Minnesota

Throwing Shade #391 May 15, 2019

Watch out for Hallmark’s dark magic, it’s time for another Throwing Shade! First, Bryan talks about Matt Easton, valedictorian from Brigham Young University, who used his graduation speech to come out as gay and, in doing so, helped to break down barriers that stifle LGBTQ students at BYU and in other religious educational institutions. Then, Erin, covers the latest developments in Georgia relating to their ‘heartbeat bill’ as well as Minnesota’s long-overdue criminalization of marital rape.
