Lambda Legal launched the first episode of its new podcast today. “Making the Case'' is a short-form interview series featuring Lambda Legal attorneys discussing impactful cases and policy work with host Alex Berg. Listeners will have the opportunity to learn more about the creative strategies, unique challenges, and passion that helped win some of the most significant cases for the LGBTQ+ community and people living with HIV in recent memory.

“I’m excited about this project and the opportunity to have accessible, compelling, and informative conversations with the lawyers who have done critical work for the LGBTQ+ community,” said Berg. “As the nation’s oldest and largest legal organization dedicated to protecting the rights of LGBTQ+ people and everyone living with HIV, Lambda Legal has played a leading role in some of the most important legal cases impacting our community.”

“Now, more than ever, with equal rights under attack across the country, it’s important for all of us to understand just how much hard work goes into the fight for full equality,” added Lambda Legal CEO Kevin Jennings. “We’re looking forward to partnering with Alex as we walk through some of the most pivotal cases Lambda Legal has worked on over the years.”

On each episode of “Making the Case,” Alex Berg will sit down with Lambda Legal lawyers to pull back the curtain on Lambda’s important legal cases and policy work affecting the rights of LGBTQ+ people and everyone living with HIV. The podcast will also discuss the work that led leaders to win some of the most consequential cases of the century.  

The “Making the Case'' podcast comes at a time when LGBTQ+ communities, especially transgender youth, are under attack by extreme politicians authoring discriminatory legislation in statehouse after statehouse. The “Making the Case” podcast will not only serve as a beacon of hope for LGBTQ+ people who feel under attack, but also as a reminder of the progress that’s been made towards full equality and the importance of the work that remains to be done.
