    Under the eight years of the Obama administration, LGBTQ rights saw increased protection. The early signs from the administration of President Donald Trump indicated a sharply different view of the direction such rights should take, and in some cases represented actual or attempted repudiation of prior rights positions. This roundtable will take stock of the state(s) of LGBT rights after very nearly two years of the new administration, addressing topics such as education, family law, healthcare, immigration, military service, protections against workplace discrimination, and religious exemptions.
