Why aren’t people talking more about the dramatic rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans?

The latest episode of the LGBTQ Nation podcast has arrived and we’re talking about a spate of state bills targeting trans student athletes. What’s motivating them? And how are they being justified?

In this week’s episode, host Alex Berg discusses hate crimes against AAPI groups that have increased at the outset of the pandemic in the wake of racist rhetoric from our former president. Looking at this issue through a queer lens, Alex is joined by AC Dumlao from the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, athlete Amazin LêThi, and activist Sammie Ablaza Wills.
