Following a historic day where the United States Supreme Court affirmed a right to same-sex marriage, the Tenth Voice will focus on the decision on our monthly Trans Talk program. Today at 1:00 pm Central time, we will interview Micah Kubic, the executive director of the ACLU of Kansas, as well as Jeffrey Mittman, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri. We’re going to discuss the history that brought us to yesterday’s decision, what’s next for existing marriage cases and hold-out administrations that may continue looking for ways to circumvent the court’s ruling. And most importantly, where the LGBT rights movement goes from here.
This will also be Sandra Meade’s last show as a regular hostess of Trans Talk. Sandra has been a foundation of Trans Talk here at KKFI, and she has spent a lot of time training me and giving encouragement to me over the last 5 months to step in for her as a regular hostess of the program. I am very much indebted to her for giving me the opportunity to serve the Kansas City community in this way. After the main event Sandra, Luke Harness, and myself will reminisce a bit about some of her favorite past shows, and talk a bit about the future.
As always, we will have a breakdown of the LGBT news for the week and the community calendar update. Be sure to tune in at 1:00pm central, 90.1 FM, or kkfi.org, Kansas City Community Radio!
