Hours after the Supreme Court's ruling on LGBT worker discrimination, Rev. Irene Monroe hailed Monday as a “a great day for LGBTQ rights."

Monroe, accompanied by her All Rev’d Up cohost Emmett G. Price III, made the comment during an interview on Boston Public Radio, where the two talked about the interwoven relationship between pushes for equality among Black and LGBTQ Americans.

"I love these moments,” Price said. "I love that [Irene] is happy, and the world is happy, and this is a moment for humanity to take one step forward."

The Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision, which ruled that workplace discrimination of LGBTQ Americans is unconstitutional, was centered around language written in Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Amendment.

“The playbook for LGBT rights,” Monroe explained, "very much comes out of the Black civil rights movement.”

The two touched on Monroe's latest writing in the Boston Globe, where she reflected on her experience as a thirteen-year old witness to the Stonewall Riots, and the hesitancy of some Black civil rights activists to embrace LGBTQ rights as civil rights.

"I think the challenge is that we have so much segmentation,” Price said. "You go back to the feminist movement and you have, you know, the Womenists who come out of that because the Black women and the women of color get left out. And so all these sections, regarding the intersections, we have to do better.

"I don’t want to demonize the fact… that the Black community and the LGBT community have not been allies,” said Monroe, who herself identifies as gay. "Let’s understand that within the LGBTQ community, racism is as rampant in that community as it is in the larger dominant community — so that’s part of the Black community... we see [the LGBT movement] as staunchly white, and we don’t make the necessary connections.”

She continued, pointing out that Black activists played an integral role in the efforts for LGBTQ equality in the 1960’s.

"We wouldn’t have that movement if not for Black drag queens in that era,” she said. "What is not told… [is] that what happened is that [police] always hit the gay bars, but they particularly hit the Black gay bar– the only one, really– more so because it was Black.”

“Both communities, LGBTQ and the Black community, have always had a shared history of violence and police brutality,” she said.

Monroe is a syndicated religion columnist and the Boston voice for Detour’s African American Heritage Trail and a visiting researcher in the Religion and Conflict Transformation Program at Boston University School of Theology.Price is professor of worship, church & culture and founding executive director of the Institute for the Study of the Black Christian Experience at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
