Happy New Year TransGriot readers! I know some of y’all are out ringing in the New Year, while other of y’all may be chilling at home or fast asleep.
It a new year, and a new 365 days to tackle life. The reset button just got pushed to do just that, so what are you going to do with it?.
As for moi, I’m going to do what I’ve been working to do for the last 20 years, try to make the world a better place for trans people in Houston, Texas, the nation and the world than when I first encountered it
2019 means that trips to Austin for me are on the horizon as the Texas Legislature will be cranking up for business. I also get to watch as a dark Blue Harris County becomes a reality with the swearing in of our new Harris County judges, our Democratic Harris County commissioner’s court majority led my County Judge Lina Hidalgo, and in two more days, the 116th Congress with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi back in charge
2019 means this is a municipal election year in Houston. In a few months we’ll be going to the polls to to see if we fire or rehire our mayor and council members, and peeps are already lining up to run in districts with term limited council members.
Somebody needs to take on CM Kubosh. ..
And as always, there’s the stuff we don’t foresee happening. What will those events look like?
That will all unfold over the next 365 days.
