What's Going On in Texas?

Episode Description

Texas legislators introduced over 50 anti-trans bills during the 2023 session and will soon become the largest state to ban gender affirming care. Imara takes a look at what’s going on in the state and how advocates are fighting back. First, she speaks with organizer and educator Adri Pérez about their experience being arrested and sustaining a concussion at the Texas Capitol. Next, she’s joined by advocate and mother to a trans child, Rachel Gonzalez. Rachel shares her perspective on conservative Texas politics, what she’s doing to keep her daughter safe, and how chosen family sustains her activism.
