Boom! Lawyered: Rapid Reaction — Supreme Court Protects LGBTQ Employees

Imani Gandy & Jessica Mason Pieklo

This Pride Month, Rewire.News recognizes that celebrating during the pandemic will look very different for many of us, which is why we’re putting together tools of resistance and hope to help us all survive (and even thrive) Pride 2020.

In a 6-3 ruling, the Court confirmed that “an employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law.” In this emergency episode of Boom! Lawyered, Imani Gandy and Jessica Mason Pieklo react to the decision—written by Neil Gorsuch, of all people—and the extremely salty dissent.
