In this podcast, we go back a bit in time. Hear Peregrine Hayward when she was a senior at Satellite High School in 2017, as one of the panel members of Space Coast Progressive Alliance’s Pride and Prejudice in Brevard panel discussion.
On June 15, 2022, President Biden signed the Executive Order “Advancing Equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Individuals.” This order is intended to counteract the wave of discriminatory, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation that has been sweeping across conservative parts of our country in the past year.
In this podcast I interview a GSA sponsor in Nevada, who talks about the issues faced by her LGBTQ+ students at school and at home, and discusses the importance of a supportive environment and supportive influences. Chantelle also discusses the fallout one student faced when he was elected homecoming queen and brought out a Pride flag at the event.
In this podcast, I cover a rally – a Pride rally, and there is *no* rally as much fun as a pride rally. I start by doing a few interviews with rally attendees as we wait for the rally to begin. Then I cover the various rally speakers – we have local LGBTQ+ activists, a LGBTQ+ student activist – Sebastian Cook, representatives from Equality Florida, PFLAG Melbourne, Space Coast Pride, Spektrum Health, and Families for Safe Schools.
