FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2016 (6pm ET/3pm PT). It’s an election year, and many politicians are looking for ways to get out the vote by passing controversial laws. Several states have passed “bathroom bills” that have been crafted to prevent transgender persons from using the bathroom to which they most closely feel aligned. Critics have said it is just too dangerous to allow potential predators anywhere near children. But what is the real truth? Scott Turner Schofield drops by to offer his perspective. Plus, General Hospital’s hot newcomer Robert Palmer Watkins drops by to give us a chance to know all about his acting, singing, and charitable work
Award-winning actor Scott Turner Schofield (SKO-feeld) feels his purpose in life is to inspire Hollywood, your school, your job, and your family to embrace transgender people. He has been part of a groundbreaking storyline on CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful, becoming the first openly transgender actor on daytime television. Since 2002, Schofield has used a successful mix of storytelling and advocacy to change policies at educational institutions, corporations, and spiritual centers. He’ll share that gift on this week’s Kroll Call as he discusses the so-called “Bathroom Bills” that require individuals to use the bathroom that corresponds to the gender listed on their birth certificate. He also says he “can’t wait to tell you why I think bathroom bills = best thing to happen to the #LGBTQ community yet.”
Then, changing topics ever so slightly, Robert Palmer Watkins, another of daytime’s promising newcomers, gives us a look into his world, a world that includes acting, singing, and a little danger in the form of rock climbing and surfing. We’ll talk musical theatre, his role on ABC’s General Hospital, and much more.
Due to a last minute change, Robert was not able to join us this week. We’re working to reschedule his appearance.
