The Texas Legislature has introduced more anti-trans legislation than ever this session. You can read about the various bills at Equality Texas.

We know that taking political action and contacting your representatives can be intimidating. In order to help you let Rep. Doc Anderson know how you feel about the bill he co-sponsored, HB 1399, which would prohibit healthcare professionals from providing best-practice, life-saving care for transgender youth.

Have you ever dreamed of doing something for the good of humankind? Being part of something greater than yourself? Spending a Saturday in the rain with a lanyard? If so, might we suggest signing up to volunteer for the Waco Pride Network. Volunteering brings one a sense of wholeness, completeness, calmness, and complete exhaustion.*

Cassie L. Smith handles the social media for the Waco Pride Network and serves on the OUT on the Brazos pride planning committee. She’s engaged to her partner, Misty Shugart, and they have two fur babies, Blitz and Bentley. Though she’s only been in Waco six years, she considers this community home.
