Show Notes

This is Part 2 of our month-long conversation on the attack on LGBTQ+ rights and its impact on mental health in Texas. The LGBTQ+ community in Texas is getting it from all sides; not just efforts to ban or sharply curtail gender affirming care, but bans on trans youth participation in sports, book bans, and just the general climate of fear-mongering that cast a shadow over Pride Month this year. Joining us to help connect the dots between the issues, the rhetoric, and people’s mental health are state Rep. Celia Israel of Austin, and Brad Pritchett of Equality Texas.
