Welcome to a special – BEST of – edition of Kaleidoscope with CBS News Radio correspondent Allison Keyes. This week, for Pride month, we revisit Allison's conversation on LGBTQ rights.
President Biden signed a presidential memorandum protecting the rights of that community in February, and on his first full day in office, he signed an executive order extending existing federal non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people, including in employment and housing.
Allison spoke with Alphonso David, president of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ advocacy group. She began by asking David about the confirmation of the first openly gay Cabinet Secretary confirmed by the Senate, Pete Buttigieg.
