It’s is mercifully Day 140 of the 85th Texas Legislative session and the last day of it. The clock is ticking toward 12:01 PM as we stand on guard in liberal progressive Texas for any GOP led legislative attacks on our human rights and our humanity.
And surprise surprise, I’m here in the ATX for the last day of the session
It has definitely not been an easy session for those of us who fight for the human rights of TBLGQ Texans. The last time we had anti-LGBTQ bills passed in Texas was 2005, and we’d just come off a 2015 session in which we were successful in killing 24 anti-TBLGQ bills including four anti-trans ones.
The anti-LGBTQ Forces of Intolerance were determined this year to pass some anti-TBLGQ hate legislation this year and we were just as determined to kill them.
We were successful in killing the big anti-LGBTQ bills in SB 6 and HB 2899, but unfortunately some good bills for our community fied during this session as well. We also saw some horrible ones like SB 4 pass
There is chatter that we may be going into a special session, but right now, just need this one to end with the quickness.
And if Governor Abbott is stupid enough to do Dan Patrick’s bidding and call it, me and the trans community will be there ti be in his face again to flush any anti-trans bill they propose.
