Benjamin Gerritz, an HIV + Oregon Fair Trade Campaign Board Member, will join us to talk about the Trans-Pacific Partnership (a multinational trade deal being negotiated by governments, with the help of corporations, in secret) and HIV medications. Will TPP ultimately reduce access to meds?

Next, we'll be joined by trans activist and former KBOO program host Sasha Buchert to talk 'post-marriage' - does the Supreme Court endorsement of gay marriage nationally portend future legal protections for the queer community, particularly its most marginalized members?

We'll also take a look at ICE's decision this week to hold trans immigrant women in women's facilities, in the wake of Jennicet Gutiérrez's interruption of a speech by Prexy Obama at the White House last week.
