The Bulletin: LGBTQ+ News From the Week of 3/21/22

Author: Alex Cooper

Welcome to “The Bulletin,” a new weekly digest of top stories selected by The Advocate’s staff. This week’s selection has been pulled together by me, Alex Cooper. I’m the digital director of Advocate.com, and I manage the content on the website. Here’s a little about what I selected.

Over the past week, national attention has been on the confirmation hearings of Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Joe Biden’s pick for the Supreme court to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer. During the hearings, Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee tried to paint Jackson as extreme and political. Besides comments about what a woman is, lawmakers also zeroed in on marriage equality calling it an “edict” created by the U.S. Supreme Court.

We also published an interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci about where he believes HIV research and treatment are heading. He shared with The Advocate his concerns over some young people’s approach to HIV. However, he’s optimistic about future treatments, especially thanks to the technology developed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

U.S. officials were also able to meet WNBC superstar Brittney Griner for the first time since her arrest in February. Though she’s been able to meet with her legal team, this is the first she’s met with an embassy representative. She’s being held in Russia after being arrested over drug charges.

Other stories in this bulletin include the tragic death of a trans woman in Chicago, two Republican governors also vetoing anti-trans sports legislation this week, Lizzo’s new show, Russian President Vladimir Putin comparing Russia to J.K. Rowling, and more.
