What I’m Reading – Oct 2020

This article is cross-posted from the ZS intranet (which we call ZSpace), where I write episodically about issues of interest to the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. It’s been lightly edited for an external audience.

I’ve been reading way more than I’ve been sharing these days.  A lot of it has to do with how busy my teams are at the moment, and the backdrop of Covid-19, of course.  Back to school has brought new challenges – both my boys have ADHD so I find myself acting as administrative assistant and homework tracker in addition to my regular mom duties.  But, I’ve always been a voracious reader and this Fall is no exception!  So here are some articles I thought would be worth sharing.  Some educational, some light-hearted … hopefully something for everyone.

There are also a couple of off-cycle posts, one about celebrating 100 rounds of chelation, and another about comparing three (annual) hair tests.

It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that LGBTQ persons have the right to marry. 

There was a really nice article published this week entitled Dignity and Respect for All that was written by Shannon Minter, an attorney who has played a pivotal role the fight for marriage equality.  He shares some of the legal history and pivotal moments that led to that incredible outcome in 2015.

LGBTQ+ Civil Rights

This article is cross-posted from the ZS intranet (which we call ZSpace), where I write episodically about issues of interest to the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. It’s been lightly edited for an external audience.
