How to Help: The Last Sip, Episode Eight, June 3
Tiffany Cross, The Beat DC
Raquel Willis, Transgender Law Center
Imara and Raquel discuss both the progress of trans people of color and the simultaneous backlash against trans communities in the Trump era, from education to health care to the military.
Caden Davis, Army National Guard
Imara talks with Caden Davis, a trans member of the Army National Guard, about the Trump Administration's transgender military ban.
Read a profile of Caden in TIME Magazine's recent coverage of transgender troops' responses to the ban.
Caden's twin brother also serves in the military. The takeaway: "It is difficult for me to accept that one of us is free to serve his country honorably while the other cannot."
The ACLU is fighting the military ban in court. You can sign the ACLU's petition against the ban here.
Patrick Riley, Producer and Journalist
Imara discusses one of the week's biggest stories in entertainment with Patrick Riley, the noted producer and writer.
The new FX show Pose premieres tonight with the largest transgender cast in TV history. According to the New York Times' review, the show "demands to be seen."
So see it here!
