Richie & John | Topic: News | Week of 8 July 2024

Welcome to the Richie & John podcast, for this week’s deep dive into news and issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community. On this episode, we tackle a slew of critical topics: from leaked polls that could shake up the 2024 presidential race to alarming Republican efforts to slash HIV/AIDS funding by $400 Million. With over 1.2 million Americans living with HIV, advocates argue now is not the time for cutbacks—especially as new treatments offer hope. Also on the docket: a harrowing look at anti-LGBTQ+ legislation's detrimental effects on mental health and an eye-opening story on Tractor Supply Company's about-turn on LGBTQ+ support under pressure from conservatives. Plus, we delve into Russia's latest insidious tactic to entrap gay men through popular apps-raising red flags about potential threats here in the U.S.-based Project 2025.
