Dr. Lisa Moore on LGBTQ Rights in Texas

LGBTQ Studies Director Lisa Lynne Moore weighs in on the state of LGBTQ+ Rights in Texas. Here's a snippet from the opinion piece published in the Houston Chronicle: 

"But there are things Texans can do. For starters, support nondiscrimination legislation such as that in Fort Worth, Dallas and Austin, and spread it to more cities across the state such as Houston and to the federal level. Let’s make sure all of us, especially those most marginalized, are included in the next national census. And we need to increase access to health care, especially reproductive health care, where LGBTQ people are routinely misrecognized or denied treatment. It takes persistence, movement-building and changing hearts and minds to fix public policy. To revive a slogan from the activism of 15 years ago: We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it."
