Pride Month 2024 sees an incredible expansion of Pride celebrations and activism across the state - much of that in rural and small-town Texas, which until just recently, was near-unthinkable. As we know, over the past few sessions, Texas has also set new standards for legislative bigotry and cruelty towards its LGBTQ+ community. So, the push for equality and equity has never been stronger - while the opposition has never been more hateful. We welcome two of the community's most determined advocates to talk Texas Pride, both returning to the pod: Ricardo Martinez, CEO of Equality Texas, and Jeff Strater, DNC Member-Elect, Democratic/SDEC Committeeman and former president of Texas Stonewall Democrats.
