If it seems like I was just in Austin two weeks ago, yeah I was up along with trans people from across the Lone Star State and our allies giving Lois Kolkhorst hell for pushing the Texas Transgender Oppression Act.
I was there for the Trans Texas Lobby day, but missed the GLBT Caucus one last Monday because frankly, still hadn’t adjusted to the time change and was still a bit tired from last week’s lobby day plus the marathon State Senate Affairs committee hearing and needed to rest a bit.
Now that I’ve done so, I’m ready to head back up to the ATX and talk to our reps about stopping SB 6 and other bad anti-TBLGQ bills in addition to explaining why they should support some good bills that will help our community.
Will also take the opportunity to thank in person the Terrific Ten Democratic senators who stood tall for the human rights of transgender Texans.
This one is the Equality Texas All In For Equality Lobby Day, and is also cosponsored by the Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT) , the ACLU of Texas and the Human Rights Campaign
There’s over 900 people registered, and that makes it the largest EQTX lobby day ever. Definitely beats the days when we would consider more than a dozen people showing up a great lobby event
We’re scheduled to be there from 10-4 PM CDT, and proud to rep my hometown and my Black trans fam.
See y’all in a few hours..
