Former baseball pitcher Curt Schilling reposted a nasty meme against transgender people in reaction to the new anti-LGBT law in North Carolina. ESPN fired him two days later. Schilling was unapologetic. Meanwhile, Andrew Shaw of the Chicago Blackhawks yelled "fucking faggot" when he was sent to the penalty box late in a playoff game against the St. Louis Blues. He first said he didn't remember what he said, then apologized the next day. He was suspended by the NHL for one game.

We will have trans writer Dawn Ennis on to discuss Schilling's remarks.

We look at what was a dramatic week for LGBT issues in sports.
