Orange Is the New Black star Lea Delaria: minorities are under siege under Trump

Lea DeLaria was one of the first openly queer stand-up comedians on the US comedy circuit. She now plays ‘Big Boo’ in the Netflix hit, Orange Is the New Black, a show that has consistently broken new ground on gender, sexuality, race and class. As an activist, DeLaria is one of Donald Trump’s biggest and most fearless critics. I asked her if she felt the gay community is under siege in the current presidency.
