10/ Across the nation, LGBTQ+ people are debating fast-tracking major life changes: weddings, gender-confirming medical care, legal name changes. It's all in anticipation of what a 6-3 Supreme Court conservative majority could mean for them.
"Brad Polumbo, a gay conservative writer and journalist, thinks those fears are overblown. He points to the court’s historic LGBTQ+ ruling in June, in which a conservative-majority court voted 6-3 in favor of nondiscrimination workplace protections."
“The extent to which conservative judges are hostile to LGBT rights is exaggerated and catastrophized,” he said, adding that he thinks a conservative court would uphold trans rights passed into law by Congress but fall short of doing so on their own."
