Video highlights: Top LGBT legal advocates detail setbacks during Trump’s first year in office

LGBT legal activists sound the alarm during a Midyear Meeting program titled, “The Current State of LGBT Law Under the Trump Administration” on Feb. 3 in Vancouver.

Citing the administration’s repeated attempts to ban transgender Americans from serving in the military as well as the Justice Department’s stance enabling the federal government to argue that existing civil rights laws don’t protect gay and bisexual workers, panelists fear further losses of anti-discrimination protections and urge constant vigilance while warning that the worst could be yet to come.
