Been a busy week of events at our state capitol now that we’re deep into the Special Oppression Session that is slated to end on August 18. Yesterday the progressive pastors held a lobby day, press conference and rally on the South Capitol steps, and the hate ministers will be desecrating the capitol tomorrow.
But on Friday, Texas TBLGQ people of color will be headed to Austin to show our legislators that we’re here and aren’t going away.
The Here to Slay event is sponsored by Aqui Estamos RGV, other Texas based orgs, Familia, the Trans Queer Liberation Movement and the Transgender Law Center and will run from 10-3 PM CDT.
The Here To Slay Capitol takeover will feature music, performers, food, community and speakers who will have a strong message to send to Gov. Abbott, Lt Gov Dan ‘Potty Man’ Patrick, and our Texas GOP oppressors and their DINO enablers.
And as you probably guessed, I’ve been asked to be one of the speakers.
So looking forward to getting a Slurpee and seeing as many of you peeps in the ATX area as I can.on Friday August 4.for the Here to Slay Capitol Takeover.
