Part 19: As the LGBTQ community becomes more visible, there is backlash.

OutCaster Isha continues her conversation with civil rights attorney Jennifer C. Pizer of Lambda Legal about religious liberty and how it can conflict with another constitutional guarantee, equality. In this episode: Does it violate the separation between church and state if the Supreme Court requires a state to pay for religious education? How are religious rights being expanded to allow people to disregard the law? And how do laws that target LGBTQ people for unequal treatment increase the risk of violence?

Jennifer C. Pizer is the Senior Counsel and Director of Law and Policy for Lambda Legal, the country’s oldest and largest legal organization seeking full recognition of the civil rights of LGBT people and everyone living with HIV.
