POTUS has not acknowledged June as LGBTQ Pride month, a break in an eight-year streak by the previous White House. This week's panel discusses the continued and new battles of the LGBTQ Community. Dominic Holden, political reporter for BuzzFeed News says bathroom bills are a major battleground. Emily Waters, a researcher for the New York City Anti-Violence Project, explains a report tracking anti-LGBTQ violence. And Nathan Smith, public policy director for GLSEN, explains how schools could set a safer climate for LGBTQ students. Then, a new study shows how the Internet has made civil wars bloodier, as Barbara Walter of the University of California in San Diego explains.
