Podcast: A study in Trans Advocacy for the Trans Day of Resilience

On this , did you know that we can make the political machine work for us? Learn about how a trans community fought off dozens of “bathroom bills” and how a Texas trans community produced the biggest queer political event of the year in one of America’s largest cities. On top of that, hear one of the most powerful Texas Republican politicians support the trans community and hear from America’s first out trans judge.
