Why has there been over 525 anti LGBTQ+ laws introduced in this country in 2023? This is absolutely by design. It has become what is called a “wedge issue” by the Republican party and it has been successful in bringing back the “traditional family” narrative stronger than ever. This is, of course, by design. The fact is, democracy is under attack and authoritarianism is on the rise. I frame what’s happening looking through the systemic lens. I also talk about what we can do!
