Couldn’t let today pass without giving a TransGriot birthday shoutout to another amazing Houston area trans leader in Ana Andrea Molina, the founding executive director of Organizacion Latina de Trans en Texas (OLTT)
It’s also interesting to note that many of the kick butt activists here in the Houston area who get stuff done and have no problem bluntly speaking truth to power are predominately Tauruses.
While the Houston based OLTT is focused primarily on the issues affecting our trans Latinx immigrant population in Texas, OLTT also has Casa Anaandrea, which is a shelter for trans and gender nonconforming person open to all
But it could also use some funding, because it does cost money to provide those services. OLTT is also trying to raise $30,000to renew the rental agreement for the home Casa Anaandrea is housed in with the goal of eventually owning this place.
Andrea has quickly established herself as one of our major Latina trans leaders in Texas and the United States, and we in Houston are fortunate to have her in our midst.
She also a wonderful friend and I have mad love and respect for her as a leader.
Feliz Compleanos, Andrea! May you celebrate many more birthdays to come!
