The attack on the LGBTQ community is in full swing this year. 

Senate Bill 6 would seek to prevent the Transgender community from using the bathroom that matches their gender!

Senate Bill 242 would require school employees to Out their students if they know their students to be LGBTQ!

The Texas Supreme Court announced it is going to rehear a case that seeks to limit the effect of U.S. Supreme Court's Obergefell ruling on marriage!

We invite you to SHOW UP and BE HEARD! We will rally at the Capitol on the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots! 

Join Austin PRIDE for our 7th Annual Stonewall Celebration & Rally on the South Steps of the Texas Capitol! This year marks the 48th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
