Today’s guest is Laura A Jacobs, LCSW-R, an advocate for all those discriminated against, marginalized, and otherwise not recognized for their self-defined identity. Laura identifies herself as trans and genderqueer. She is a recognized leader in the advocacy for LGBTQ people.

Laura will help us understand what’s going on socially and politically in the LGBTQ community. The vitriolic hate filled discrimination against people who do not identify as gender binary is no different than hate towards other races, religions, people with mental health problems, and many others.

Laura A. Jacobs: "I am a psychotherapist, activist, public speaker, and author devoted to the exploration of identity and the relationship between individual and society, the diversity of gender identity and sexual expression, and the search for meaning.
As Lawrence Jacobs, I worked in the arts as a musician performing independently and with bands, a composer of solo works and for independent theater, and a photographer exhibiting in galleries, as well as in less glamorous positions such as corporate middle management."
