EQUALITY TEXAS

For over 30 years, Equality Texas has worked to secure LGBTQ+ equality in the hearts and minds of all Texans and in all areas of the law. Equality Texas guides activists through their advocacy journey, providing the issue and skills education necessary to confidently exercise their individual and collective power to protect and advance LGBTQ+ rights in Texas.

When we began organizing over three decades ago, we blocked attempts to quarantine people with AIDS. Since then, our issues have evolved, but our unwavering commitment to protect and expand the rights of LGBTQ+ people in Texas has not. 

WHAT’S NEXT 

Texas is one of 27 states without LGBTQ+ inclusive comprehensive nondiscrimination protections. LGBTQ+ Texans lack basic legal protections that leave us vulnerable to discrimination in employment, public accommodations, education, credit, and housing. Although we celebrate recent victories, there is still work to be done. Equality Texas will continue to fight until there are statewide protections for all LGBTQ+ people. Here’s how you can help:

We need your continued fortitude, advocacy, and generosity to combat legislation used to render LGBTQ+ Texans as second-class citizens. We will not stand by and watch our home be brought to its knees by discrimination and hate.

Your donation will help fund programs like Equality Texans, (Equality Education), Equality Forward, and Equality Fellows; programs that put LGBTQ+ Texans at the center of our work and drive progress in the priority areas of nondiscrimination, LGBTQ+ youth, family recognition, and transgender rights.

It takes a movement of people to change hearts and minds, creating sustainable change that ensures LGBTQ+ Texans can live fully and authentically, without fear of discrimination. A movement of Equality Texans.

Join this movement by making an investment in the protection and advancement of rights of LGBTQ+ Texans.

Thank you for your support of Equality Texas.
