Richie & John | Guest: Laura Meeks | Transgender Community Advocate

In this episode of Richie & John, co-hosts Richie Roy and John McMullen sit down with Laura Meeks, a very articulate transgender community advocate, to explore her remarkable journey of self-discovery. Laura reveals how she came to realize her authentic self at 31, amidst the high-stakes world of serving as a bomber pilot in the United States Air Force, all while being married and raising a family. This thought-provoking discussion delves into Laura’s personal experiences and the unique challenges she faced, both during and after her transition. Moreover, the conversation tackles the troubling anti-Trans biases that persist even within the LGBTQ+ community, shedding light on the voices that advocate for an 'LGB without the T'. Tune in for a compelling dialogue that not only highlights the resilience of one transgender woman but also confronts broader issues of acceptance and unity within the LGBTQ+ spectrum.
