Barrett is known for her conservative views and the LGBT+ community are undoubtedly concerned about what her appointment could mean for the future of their rights.

Reporter Millie Spencer spoke to Joseph Duggan Lyons, LGBT+ Activist from Iowa, and George Rennie, Political Scientist at Melbourne University, to understand why Barrett is so controversial.
