Radio Show: Today In LGBT News - President Obama's LGBT Legacy, WILL & GRACE Is Officially Coming Back To NBC
On this mid-week episode of The Randy Report:
• President Obama, speaking at his final news conference with the White House press corps, spoke about the progress of LGBT rights and protections under his administration. While he acknowledged his team was proud of the movement forward, he gave props to all the out and proud Americans who, through their sheer visibility, helped to bring about a huge change in the way society views LGBTs.
"I think we made useful contributions... but the primary heroes are the activists."
• President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for Education Secretary, billionaire Betsy DeVos, was directly questioned about her past support for anti-LGBT organizations, and especially so-called "ex-gay" therapy.
• And it's finally official - the hit TV show that many say helped give much exposure and visibility to the LGBT community, Will & Grace, is coming back to NBC for a 10 episode season next year.
