BloomingOut hosts Frankie, Rachel and Alex discuss hot topics within the LGBT community including the Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission and a similar case in Oregon. They question whether the Oregon discrimination case is indicative of a greater trend and how this case could impact future court rulings.
During the second half of their discussion, our hosts reflect on experiences from 2017 and set goals for the new year.
