What I Believe:
Being gay is only part of who I am -- but it’s a part that I am immensely proud of and a community that I am honored to represent. We have made much progress, but the fight for equality in the modern era is far from over. It is outrageous that in many parts of Texas, you can still be married on Saturday, evicted on Sunday,and fired on Monday, all because of who you love. As your governor, I will fight for equality for our community.
What I Will Do:
As governor, I will fight to protect the rights, dignity, and lives of trans Texans and all members of our LGBTQ community. This includes a more comprehensive nondiscrimination protections, equal pay, access to culturally competent healthcare and a repeal of unconstitutional provisions from Texas Statute; Amend to Reflect Marriages of Same-Sex Couples.
