Don’t mess with Texas Queers!
In solidarity with LGBTQ people in Mississippi and North Carolina
We, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer community and allies of the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, condemn the hateful anti-LGBTQ legislation that is attacking our people in Mississippi and North Carolina. We are gathering to stand in solidarity. We are also sending a message to Governor Greg Abbott and our representatives that we will not tolerate hateful legislation in the state of Texas that keeps the LGBTQ community in the shadows.
That’s why we are gathering on Sunday, April 17 at 4 p.m. in front of the Brownsville Federal Court House. We will not stay silent while our community is attacked!
Should any hateful bills appear, we are ready to speak up and fight for the human rights of our people. We call on our fellow Texanxs to fight back with us!
