Podcast: A Religious Litmus Test for Serving LGBTQ Youth at Risk?

LISTEN

This is a dangerous time for LGBTQ people, and children across the country are paying the price.

On this installment of the LeGaL LGBT Podcast, we talk with Christina Wilson Remlin, lead counsel at Children’s Rights about anti-LGBTQ legislation that targets queer youth in out of home care by attempting to give service providers a license to discriminate against foster parents and others who don’t meet a religious litmus test.

These policies place the agencies ‘beliefs above the needs and best interests of children in care. They also discriminate against parents who are trying to provide a loving home.

We also talk with LeGaL’s Legal Director Brett Figlewski about our LGBTQ Youth Clinic and the free legal services we provide.
