Chechnya Camps, European Transgender Sterilization, And Same-Sex Adoption Rights In This Weekly Debrief

It's been another yoyo of a week for LGBT rights and treatment across the globe. 

Matt Baume gives us an update on these topics and more in his Weekly Debrief.

  • Gay men are being rounded up and killed in Chechnya, and US officials seem to be turning a blind eye.
  • A European court just ruled against the mandatory sterilization of trans citizens but the practice will continue indefinitely.
  • Same-sex couples just won new protections for adoption and for housing in a case that could completely change how same-sex couples across the country can be thrown out of their homes.

 

 

 

It's often we ask "what can we do?"  Well Matt does have a suggestion or two.
