About Us

Mission

Building a broad and inclusive powerful political movement while shifting public opinion in support of LGBTQ nondiscrimination and achieving policy victories in support of equality.

We will work to build a strong, vibrant and powerful progressive movement working toward LGBTQ equality in the city of Houston by building strategic partnerships and engaging in values-based coalitions to address the needs of the LGBTQ community. We will do that by building relationships with progressive groups and activists that advocate for racial justice, immigrant rights, reproductive justice, working families and other important progressive causes.

We recognize that many individuals within the LGBTQ movement experience privilege and many experience oppression and that LGBTQ Houstonians are far from full legal equality in our current political climate.

We will prioritize both broad based public education outside of the LGBTQ community as well as in-community education and support policies that are inclusive of transgender and gender non-conforming people.

We will not support policies that protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and queer people at the expense of the transgender community.

Our Values

Our goal is to build a strong and vibrant progressive movement and advance LGBTQ equality in the city of Houston. We will do this by embracing the values of an inclusive movement, which include accountability, empowerment, integrity, dignity, respect and community.

Our commitment to improve the lives and legal protections for transgender and gender nonconforming people, LGBTQ people of color and the LGBTQ community as a whole is a strategic investment in basic rights for all people.
