Wednesday on Last Call we discussed human rights issues in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community. Joining me in the studio was Equality Florida executive director Nadine Smith.

We began with news about Florida Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll. A former aide is accusing her of being caught in a compromising position with another female aide. Last week Smith wrote a strongly-worded column about something Carroll recently told a local television station. Nadine Smith's column is called "Dear Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll: Yes, you do look like a lesbian."

Occupy Tampa is supporting a boycott against Chick-Fil-A; and on Friday August 3 there’s a national Same Sex Kiss Day at Chick-Fil-A. Because of the company's opposition to equal rights.

We also spoke about a transgender candidate in the Orlando area running for office, Gina Duncan.

Pioneering astronaut Sally Ride died this week. Her website revealed for the first time that she was a lesbian.
