"Known as Dev Hynes or lightspeed champion and he's a music artist who's written produced various albums of his own as well as helped produce and write other people's albums from his music is eclectic so it's really hard to put into just one category he's also never officially came out but he said in multiple interviews that he can't just identify as straight or just gay so the album from this song is mostly indie rock and I like it a lot so you should check it out but anyways it was barely five years ago that the United states legalize same sex marriage throughout all fifty states after that there was a celebration worldwide among the LGBT community the White House was lit up with a rainbow their parades in the streets June twenty six was a landmark day for community but there's a long history of the legalization of same sex relations and same sex marriage far before two thousand fifteen before same sex marriages even an idea people entertained as early as the nineteenth century same sex couples would live in relationships that would essentially function as marriages but without any legal rights or sanctification in nineteen fifty three one magazine published a cover story called homosexual marriage question mark and the US post office officials debated for three three weeks on whether or not they should send the issues because the content might be seen as obscene after that there was very little mention of same sex marriage in official documents until nineteen seventy one when the gay activists alliance went to new York's marriage license bureau demanding marriage rights this was four years after interment interracial marriage was legalized throughout the US decided by loving versus Virginia which is another landmark case in October of nineteen seventy one the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that loss prohibiting same sex marriage we're not a constitutional a year later the US Supreme Court refused to consider case Baker versus Nelson that would rule on the constitutionality of barring same sex couples from emerging from marrying the following years a few states begin banning same sex marriage including Virginia in nineteen seventy five and Florida California and Wyoming in nineteen seventy seven in the eighties older more radical members of the LGBT community argued that fighting for marriage equality was in direct opposition to the kind of anti mainstream sexual liberation culture that the community was founded on others said they wanted to focus on things that would have more long term success like anti discrimination laws in nineteen ninety three Bruce Bawer Usman morality arguments in order to justify legalizing same sex marriage he also often criticize the gay community for learning homosexuality with sexual behavior that same year a crowd of over fifteen hundred to same sex couples stood in front of the national the national museum of natural history and staged a mass wedding with organ music ministers fails and rice in may of nineteen ninety three also Hawaii Supreme Court ruled on bare verses might Mike which ruled that a ban on same sex marriage was not in violation of the state's constitution that ruling gave Congress the idea for the defense of Marriage Act or doma a bill that bill Clinton signed into law in September of seven in nineteen ninety six sorry which made it a federal law that marriage is defined as a union between one man and one woman fast forward to two to two thousand three when the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that barring same sex couples from marrying violated the Massachusetts state constitution which made the first state to recognize same sex marriage by two thousand four early in two thousand four Brenda marriage license Clarkson seven disco in new Paltz New York central county New Mexico Multnomah county in Oregon and Ashley park in New Jersey begin giving out marriage licenses to same sex couples until the state had to order them not to as time went on more and more states begin to lift the bands they had on same sex marriages in two thousand nine some members of Congress even wanted to repeal doma but never got anywhere with it in two thousand thirteen in the case of the United States VS versus Windsor the Supreme Court ruled that part of domain was in violation of the due process clause of the constitution but didn't actually outlawed the ban on same sex marriage on June twenty six two thousand fifteen with the case of over over twelve verses Hodges the US legalizing marriage same sex marriage in all fifty states which is why I was so monumental as it was then he requires all states to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples regardless of any previous ban on same sex unions June twenty seventh seem to be an unfortunate wake up call for the community among the fifty states in the U. S. even in two thousand fifteen fourteen states actively banned gay marriage which meant the majority of the population of those states were not happy with the idea that they had to become tolerant of same sex couples something that was very apparent soon after the couple's we're trying to get marriage licenses on the news the next day there are multiple stories of people refusing to give marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples the requested them one of the most infamous cases was Kim Davis a Kentucky woman who stopped giving marriage licenses entirely a few days after the supreme court made its ruling on same sex marriage according to NBC news that same month federal District Court judge David Bunning gave a court order to Davis the required to give out marriage licenses but she still refused she was then charged with contempt of court though she argued that giving out marriage licenses to same sex couples goes against our conscious judge manning said that though she's exercising her religious freedom she was quote promoting her own religious convictions at the expense of others she was jailed but eventually went free and she still employed as of today more recently though there's been another attack on the rights of same sex couples in the US about a week ago the Supreme Court announced that he would hear a case that will determine the course of use on religious values versus LGBT rights the case name Fulton versus the city of Philadelphia concerns the rights of religious adoption and foster care agencies according to pink news agency in court called Catholic social services actively bans gay lesbian couples from adopting or fostering children and doesn't receive money from the government because of this discrimination they took this case to court because they argue that the lack of funding because of their views it's a direct attack on the constitutional right to freedom of religion the government has always ruled in favor of neutral anti discrimination laws even if they impeded on religious views however the two new trump appointed justices may prove to be a new blockade on these kinds of rulings according to CNN this case revisits revisits a landmark ruling and anti discrimination laws versus religious rights in nineteen ninety the Supreme Court ruled on the server ruled on a similar case in favor of the non discriminatory non discriminatory laws Steve Vladeck CNN's Supreme Court analysis and professor at the university of Texas school of law said for three years the court has held that neutral government laws that incidentally burden religious exercise or non constitutional but if the court overturns that decision it could have enormous consequences if the supreme court were to rule in favor of the Catholic fostering agency it would allow these agencies that actively discriminate to not only operate but to then eventually receive money from the state as well as set of federal president the religious agencies are allowed to discriminate at any time the other problem with this is the impracticality of it according to NBC news in two thousand seventeen there are over four hundred forty three thousand children in the foster care system every year fifty thousand of those kids are adopted but twenty thousand other age out twenty thousand others age out before they have the opportunity to be adopted by discriminate discriminating against same sex couples that are loving and qualified to foster adopt these agencies severely cut the amount of families that children can go to also studies show that LGBT couples foster to adopt former often than straight couples do and are more likely to take in children of color I'm sorry children that are older or children have a disability that fact alone speaks for itself this case is currently pending so we'll try to update you later on the happenings of it another Supreme Court case that according to a Reuters is also currently pending would determine the rights of LGBT workers in the U. S. Gerald Bostock a gay man living in Clayton county Georgia is one of three people in this case that were fired because of their sexuality or gender identity Bostock was employed by the county working as an advocate for child abuse and neglect victims Bostock often said it was his dream job and I wasn't entirely livelihood according to pink news though Bostic had been working at that job for over ten years then one day join to gay softball league not not not long after that he was fired for what his employer said was quote conduct unbecoming of a Clayton county employee and he said I knew immediately it was because of my sexual orientation unfortunately while this type of discrimination is obviously unethical there are no federal laws prohibiting the firing of an employee based on their sexual orientation and gender identity twenty two states and many cities have laws in place protecting the rights of queer people in the workplace but nationally firing soon because of the date because they identify as part of the LGBT community is completely legal also it also brings up a good point saying what's bizarre about this is in the state of Georgia I can legally get married to my partner on Saturday or Sunday and get fired for it on Monday because I don't have those federal protections which is completely true because like I said earlier the Supreme Court determined bans on same sex marriage unconstitutional and legalized in all fifty states in two thousand fifteen another plaintiff in the bossa case is Amy Stevens who was fired from her job because she's a trans woman she was given the opportunity to keep herself about her gender identity but ultimately decided not to saying quote I couldn't stay silent I had to say something according to NBC news boss or have been battling this case for six years but he's optimistic he isn't though the first to try to win a case that would outlaw discrimination of crippling the workplace between two thousand nine in two thousand eleven while Democrats controlled Congress and the White House a bill that would ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity was introduced but never passed once Republicans control the house of representatives again it was out of the question there would have there been more efforts with the introduction of the equality act which would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the civil rights act list of protected classes but so far none have gone passed both houses of Congress the plaintiffs witnesses and attorneys in the case gave oral arguments in front of the Supreme Court way back in October their arguments were based on title seven in the Civil Rights Act the part that prohibits employment discrimination based on race color religion sex and national origin emphasizing the part about discrimination based on sex the attorneys in the case are you the firing someone because of their gender identity is undeniably discrimination based on sex and firing some because of what gender their chart two is also discrimination based on sex various other quotes sources have argued otherwise but that's the argument a CO you lawyers have made in the court this is almost five months ago and the case is still pending so we'll try to give updates yeah so that's what's happening right now and I'm actually really surprised that it's still pending because it happened so long ago and I feel like they would've done something by now but I'm gonna have to research that more and try to update you guys on that so but the next song that I'm gonna play for you guys because I will be talking a lot today so I'm taking a few sun breaks is by Julien Baker she was originally a member of the band the star killers and she's a lesbian and the songs from her album boy genius which she made alongside Phoebe bridges and Lucy doc is so this is souvenir by Julien Baker.

"It's only a few years old but it's it well I I I you thing is I've had the original version of the song I had for so long like crazy like first blood orange album. two thousand nine twenty ten. so what's it like when you are making one of those records and and how is it different from when you're making your own records are usually going in with demos Sir I'm not it varies it's all too common. my thing with collaborator people is. are there in any way they want. because I'm. even myself as a service to them and so if they want me to just sit and come up with melodies what is a producer I'll do that they want me to produce truck I'll do that you know it's whatever they want to write in the room together just me and them create something then I'll do that I'm very like if I've given. myself to that person and in that environment then I'm you know kind of the S. and just we'll try and be respectful and make the best thing you know so it's a completely different mindset to me just like walking around fit and ideas of the book it's like a different goal yeah different go posted a. its walls I I'm Jesse thorn my guest Dev Hynes is a producer and songwriter who records under the name blood orange. you have daily on this new record. I have a friend who thinks that did he may have magic powers. probably my friend comedian Chris Gethard does have had did he on his show a few times both is is live show in his television show and at one point I did his assistant told him that he is here she believe that Terry had magic powers and then did you did something magical it really blew Chris is my. well but like I think of all the people in the of all the people in the contemporary music industry maybe the one who seems the least like a real human being to me is steady. like he seems like some like a mystical like a story about a record producer. right so how did you get daily on your record like did you like. meet him at the grocery store or like get his number somebody did you imagine that he would be did you have a daily part you're like I gotta get duty for this yeah I did a fake did the impression on the song and then I texted it to him and then he sent his vocals back the next day. that's how her half since. yeah. yeah.

"You lived in the United States like ten years yeah what do you think about when you think about England like what are the things that you've. maybe even surprised herself reminiscing about. well my happiest memories. now I look back on ten to me based on sports. Sir I think about playing football. you're like a pretty serious football player soccer player yeah yeah when you're a kid right yeah. that was that was the number one thing for me how much time did you plan to spend playing Sir. lunch times of school. off to school. sometimes before school with training and then though it's depend on what teams I was on the B. matches on Saturdays and Sundays from so during an additional team and then the B. trains on those mornings also says a fit him house time. I'm I'm gonna say present tense too because I still believe I'm a very good football player. there's only a couple things that I will ever tool confidently. about myself in the mirror and and football is one of the things that maybe I need to. I'd back depending on the day three things the usability two things in the world about the I'm actively be confident. but one of the missile the second one is what words with friends. you know what I am good at the exit no no playing guitar okay. that's fair. you're listening to balls I I'm Jesse forward my guest is deb Heinz of the band blood orange. why did you quit. arm it is extremely tiring I hated playing like a train at like six AM on a Sunday and it's like rain in and it's gray and is this mod everywhere and and it's so competitive and you know I mean I I am freak compulsive but not that much. by getting care that much and you really needed to care. more than I did you know like I play now and that's the level at which I care enough. did you have a vision for your life that was something else or were you just tired of running around in circles assist tied yet that's really what it was. I didn't have any idea really what I was doing I mean if someone had asked me at that point in my life I would probably say like writing in some regards bike that seems to be what I thought maybe th where I thought things were. going to go so what changed because you've had like three or four different music careers this point I guess it was this thing where music was always kind of up in the roots of me but so much so that I didn't actually take it that seriously because you know through a fruit throughout all of those things I was making records in my bedroom and playing in bands and playing an orchestra enter in like recitals but it was always like. the the fun thing I was doing. to kind of keep myself current. I would ever I wasn't ever chase in anything because what made me happy was just the active there in it. like I say like I never I never sang in front of America in my bedroom. it wasn't. at what I did was like. tapings of the radiator and then like try and like recreate them. I mean it seems to me like that might be part of why you're. such an accomplished producer I mean like a lot of thank you a lot of musicians are also like really passionate fans and I'm I hate the word rang getting music curators Paula Jeez. but like it you know that that's true of a lot a lot of musicians but like all of us so much of your music is about it feels like it is about finding new ways to band aesthetics. yeah. more than it is necessarily about like. you know rocking a crowd or right you know whatever the other. whatever the other values of pop music are many of which are totally great yeah third Hey maybe this okay so maybe this will kind of expand a bit more but like how I am like how I make blood orange albums. especially the I'd say yeah I can relax Freetown and this last one. the general trail of how they're made I think kind of sums it all up because it tends to be. and this very is of course like it's not exactly like this but title for us like I had the title Negro swan around time Freetown sound was released. I knew I wanted to do because it could be worse on and from there was like thinking of what does that mean in imagery and. just trying to create like a almost like a template or like the mood board of like feelings in an injury like an actual binder right let's get physical yeah yeah I had actual having not metaphorically yes this is exactly yeah this is a literal book of images and merits and from there once I'm kind of putting that together I have these ideas of the music kinda touches itself the imagery for me so I have an idea of these different. things are fans I tend to make actually these like playlists and mix tapes of myself of other people's music that is feeding into it but then within that I've I find I see the things are missing or the things I want to feel and and meld together so that's kind of foreman but it's it's like the music's not doesn't exist you know I think it's in my head this kind of thing and then I'm writing words down so I thought rise in love words and then I kind of like kind of work it out like I have an idea of what I think it's Tracklisten would be so I knew I wanted to open a record. I knew the change I wanted to go for in the middle I can you how and it's and and then I kind of like fit it in and I make that moot you know it's kind of a weird way and so all the tracks tend to actually finish. at the same time. in the mix in versus reason when I make make center I could just before that the track start to finish because it's hard for me to finish track two if I know I have a finished check thirty. so it's really rare that like I could probably play its track to someone but I'll feel weird about that because I know that it needs to. it it it's all gonna affect. everything else so they they tend to have the finish line at the same time. its walls I I'm Jesse thorn I'm here with Dev Hynes the singer songwriter behind the band blood orange. when you were a teenager and you were playing in bands what kind of bands were you playing an mainly metal bands mainly metal I think the first promo picture of you that I saw you were wearing a Megadeth teacher probably I learned all my the artist that I since he learned guitar and bass from our Megadeth some smashing pumpkins and hot. do you have to like resist playing sweet refs whenever you have a guitar in your hand I only think it's own states I don't think it's a like a home or anything and if you ever see him alive I do a crazy it's also a kitten in this that you know there's actually a ever from a recent the last patrol fast the song will not be Wanda and I did the other crazy it's also in that. even though it's not even me on the records my name from Vegas sauce not record when you were a teenager playing in metal bands did you. do that thing that teenagers who plan metal bands do which is like sit in your room and bang out riffs faster and faster until you can totally shred like Dave Mustaine third. although I was trying to shred like I'll try to shed like my freedman. we call again. and the hot sisters that's who I was trying to play guitar like. did you think that was going to be your life at some point I mean when did you think I will be coming up musician especially as a guy who didn't. sing in front of a mirror as he said probably like two years ago. yeah no I don't know yeah it really and never really. thought it was going to go down kind of just happens we'll wrap up my conversation with Dev Hynes after a break still to come what's it like when did he has your phone.

"Lot of production a lot of production on that it's true yeah it's Witt what's interesting to me about this project is that it's almost hard to to read it as as a quality edge here an album or not just because it it seems like such a fine almost like a fever dream like if you are age here and you've just come off of a ton of stadiums around the world and millions of records sold and he's just like you know what I want to make it out with my friends and not only with his friends like to lead and Camilla Kobe and Justin Bieber but also you know he has this flecks of you know what I always kind of like fifty cent and Eminem let's put them on one of my songs together in a song that sounds like a doctor a production like that that's incredible like he it's just more than anything and there are some hits and misses on here but to me it just shows like how big of a star ed Sheeran is that he does like like now he said had had his rolodex of of huge starts to pull from his conduct remember that movie blank check when there is little okay got going and I just want to I want anything if you kind of like a Macintosh yes said yeah let me get all these guys to come show up and you know there's some some good results there yeah good to be at all let's go to blood orange angels Paul's that also came out on Friday met tell people about blood orange light orange is a producer songwriter composer real poly math of a guy named Dev Hynes he is it British my birth lives in New York City and he has written some great songs for so long lines for sky Ferreira for Carly rae Jepsen we have quite a career of his own what's exciting about him is that he really likes to try everything actually he's recently collaborated with Philip Glass that's right probably the only person who's collaborative Carly rae Jepsen and Philip Klass I would imagine jeopardy question in what's exciting about him is how many different people who always seems to pull into his projects he seems like a guy who's really excited and happy to share the stage and because he is someone who has a background as a song writer he seems to be able to say okay like that somebody else can write sing the song it's still mine at heart but he can walk and somebody like Kelsey Lou up a beautiful singer named twenty does who's who's new and so this album there are songs where you know you can hear his voice which I think is really great deal he's got a a coke rapper from Florida need any revival who takes over an entire song for those of you who missed three six mafia he's got yes project Pat on the album which is this is an excellent surprise so he's got that you know the song this song bends over here I think it really caps encapsulate this album it's got that late kind of lilting saxophone it's got a beautiful chorus towards the end they're just pop songs in this album what's nice about it is he released it and called it a mixtape he said after he records is proper albums he always likes to go and kind of mess around in the sand box but he doesn't put those out usually but he felt he had spent so much time on the songs you want to release them to the world I think actually because they have a little bit of that ingrained lack of seriousness of being like here's my next statement it actually benefits from it it's a really nice record let's listen to bands from blood orange last Thursday right now.
