It's The 85th Texas Legislature Sine Die Day
And surprise surprise, I'm here in the ATX for the last day of the session
It has definitely not been an easy session for those of us who fight for the human rights of TBLGQ Texans. The last time we had anti-LGBTQ bills passed in Texas was 2005, and we'd just come off a 2015 session in which we were successful in killing 24 anti-TBLGQ bills including four anti-trans ones.
The anti-LGBTQ Forces of Intolerance were determined this year to pass some anti-TBLGQ hate legislation this year and we were just as determined to kill them.
There is chatter that we may be going into a special session, but right now, just need this one to end with the quickness.
And if Governor Abbott is stupid enough to do Dan Patrick's bidding and call it, me and the trans community will be there ti be in his face again to flush any anti-trans bill they propose.
