In brief: Welcome back to Rewire.News federal policy reporter Katelyn Burns. She and I wander — as we do — and tangent through the murky waters of science proving a person’s identity is valid, Trump-Pence HIV/AIDS hypocrisy, gatekeepers to which stories get told and the effect on cultural norms, and more! Join us on our eclectic conversation and come back next week for the conclusion!
