Rachel Maddow

The gal-pals finish up LGBT month talking about political commentator Rachel Maddow. Kim’s 1 Cool LGBT Thing showcases why representation matters in all aspects of life. The gal-pals also talk about the amazing men and women who have come out to them and how they showed support and became an ally –  even if one out-friend did steal Katie’s clarinet. Katie really wants that clarinet back BTW.
