Transgender Issues on Eastern Standard

Jun 22, 2016

Lexington's Annual Pride celebration is this weekend, happening on the tail of devastating news such as the mass shooting in Orlando. In the midst of all the discussions involving LGBT issues, Eastern Standard will focus on the oft-forgotten T: Transgender rights and issues. Kentucky recently joined the lawsuit with other states over the controversial matter at hand of Transgender restrooms.

It's time for our weekly chat with Rich Copley about weekend arts and cultural activities. Rich tells WEKU’s John Hingsbergen that, with the Oakridge Boys performing Saturday night at Renfro Valley, he had a chance to interview one of the members of the group.  

Rich Copley is an arts reporter for the Lexington Herald Leader.  Information on the weekend’s events is available in today’s (Friday) edition.  You can also find out about arts and cultural events by visiting the events calendar on-line, at WEKU dot FM.
