If you attack one Texan, you attack all Texans. Lou Weaver, from Equality Texas, will be our guest speaker at PFLAG Houston monthly meeting, scheduled Sunday, February 10. Join us to learn about Equality Texas’s mission to secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Texans through political action, education, community organizing, and collaboration.
Weaver will speak about the 86th Texas Legislature that began on January 8, 2019 and should conclude on May 27, 2019. Emphasis will be on bills targeting the LGBTQ communities and what we can do to stop them, including Trans Lobby Day on March 7 and the All in for Equality Lobby Day on March 18.

PFLAG relies on membership and volunteers. Our membership drive will continue through the end of February. We invite all to join us in our three-fold mission of supporting families, educating communities concerning LGBTQ issues, and advocating for inclusive policies in order to end discrimination and promote equality. Some day, we hope that there will be no need for PFLAG. Until then, we look forward to expanding our membership so that our important work can continue. Information about joining PFLAG Houston is available on the website, PFLAGHouston.org.
