Jussie Smollett

SDGLN Weekly Wrap: March 23 - March 29, 2019

Here is everything we covered in SDGLN this week.

The week started out with a scary situation at a Palm Springs LGBT bar.

Nationally, headlines blew up after actor Jussie Smollett was cleared of all charges in his fraud case. Then in entertainment news, we spoke with up-and-coming country star Cameron Hawthorn and celebrated wrinkled trans flags everywhere.

Could Smollett’s hate crime affect public perception of hate crimes?

In real life, Smollett is an African American gay male. Smollett has been charged with concocting an elaborate racist and homophobic assault against him. Smollett’s fan base, needless to say, is flummoxed. So, too, are many Americans trying to push through this deeply polarized moment.

This was a short week as people took Monday off in observance of President's Day, but there was plenty in the news both locally and nationally including yet another twist in the Jussie Smollett case.
