This week, Our Body Politic finishes its month-long series ‘Our Body Politic Presents’ with TransLash Media, where trans people and allies talk back about what matters most and discuss how to create a fairer world for all. Host Imara Jones interviewed journalist Zoë Schiffer of NBC to discuss what’s going on behind the scenes at Netflix after Dave Chappelle’s transphobic special ‘The Closer’ and how employees are organizing and speaking out. The TransLash team investigated the origins of the movement to ban trans women from sports – and the right-wing group driving the effort. On weekly roundtable ‘Sippin’ the Political Tea’, I was joined by regular contributor Errin Haines of the 19th and Imara Jones of TransLash Media to explore trans rights, intersectionality, and the legacy of Shirley Chisholm.
