Jazz Jennings of TLC’s I Am Jazz spoke to Glamour about the political climate. Unsurprisingly, the transgender reality TV star critiqued Trump for perceived oppression of the LGBTQ+ community. Yet Trump has been more outspokenly supportive of the LGBTQ+ community than any other GOP President in history.
Season three of TLC’s I Am Jazz began with the episode titled “Bottoms Up” airing on June 27. Jazz Jennings was born a boy but wants to be a girl and has been living as one for years. The teen is turning 16 years old and is ready to complete "her" physical transition. But she soon realizes there is a self-made obstacle in her way.
The gender deconstructionists on the Left are now using PBS to push only their viewpoint. On June 19, the documentary-film series Independent Lens aired a one-hour film called Real Boy. The star, naturally, was a girl named Rachael who wants to be a boy named Bennett, and her goal in this film was “top surgery,” known in less euphemistic terms as breast amputation. The “balance” in this film was Rachael’s mother Suzy, who the gay activists at the “NBC Out” website described as “frustratingly apprehensive.”
On Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America could not contain its disgust over the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upholding a Mississippi religious freedom law that protects business owners with religious objections from being forced to participate in gay weddings, among other provisions.
The liberal taxpayer-funded PBS focused June 19’s episode of its Independent Lens film series on a teen’s transgenderism.

But he says his decision was a long time in the making. He even claimed that when he was younger, he “hated using the women's restrooms.

The LGBT community is anything but monolithic—after all, its symbol is the rainbow. But when it comes to political ideology, Republicans often feel left out. While June is technically Pride Month, this year’s celebrations have focused more on resistance. And that, as NPR digital news intern Christianna Silva pointed out, has alienated many Trump supporters and right-leaning LGBT folks.
After President Obama commuted the 35-year-sentence of Bradley Manning, (who now identifies as “Chelsea Manning,”) this past January, the now freed, disgraced former army private has plenty of time to speak with the media and give “her” side of the story. Nightline anchor JuJu Chang previewed her full interview with Manning on this morning’s Good Morning America, which portrayed Manning as a “complex” and “heroic” figure instead of a traitor.

Openly advocating for the transgender movement, media across the nation are hoping powerful sports organizations will use the threat of boycotts to defeat the bathroom bill now before the Texas Legislature.
