Hodges, establishing the freedom to marry for same-sex couples nationwide.  She joins us to talk about the current issues in LGBT rights, including what's happening in Maine and nationwide regarding non-discrimination, transgender rights and related issues--and how the current climate under the Trump administration affects the LGBT community.
