The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) civil rights organization, hosted its Houston dinner on Saturday night, April 9, 2022. The event featured a speech from Beto O'Rourke, whom HRC endorsed for Texas Governor last month. While outlining a positive, unifying vision for the future of Texas, he condemned Governor Abbott’s abhorrent treatment of transgender youth and the cruel anti-LGBTQ+ legislative bills that have taken hold in the state capitol. The evening also included remarks from actor and activist Alexandra Billings, who discussed her experience transitioning and the vitriol that has always existed for transgender individuals.
