The lastest to come from the Biden administration is the reversal of a policy that was formed under former President Donald Trump which limited the protections for transgender people in healthcare. This a win for the LGBTQ+ community and the restoration of these protections will ensure there is equal access to vital medical care without bias toward gender identity or sexual orientation.

NBC has officially announced that they will not be airing the Golden Globes in 2022 due to the going controversy within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The network said in a statement, “We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right. As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes. Assuming the organization executes on its plan, we are hopeful we will be in a position to air the show in January 2023.” This leaves the HFPA in quite the predicament. They’ll either have to figure out how to proceed with next year’s Golden Globes without their broadcasting partner or make changes to the organization’s membership and processes. Time will only tell if the HFPA will get it’s sh*t together (but Tom Cruise isn’t waiting, he’s giving his three Golden Globes back).
