Last month, a neo-Nazi group disrupted a drag queen story hour in Taunton. It was one of a handful of recent events around Boston where protesters moved their actions from outside buildings to inside where the events are happening, bringing them in front of children and their families. We talk about what appears to be an escalation and its impact on LGBTQ+ communities with Andy Pollock, president of the South Coast LGBTQ+ Network, and Hope Watt-Bucci, president of the nonprofit, North Shore Pride.
