Houston Mayor Proclaims Trans Day

Houston Texas Mayor Bill White has proclaimed July 25th "Transgender Center Day" in honor of the organizations first year anniversary.

The daylong event included a barbecue, socializing, networking, and a brief program that was attended by local politicians and a state representative, who presented the center with proclamations and certificates.

The Transgender Center
, one of the first of its kind in the country, has become a face for the trans community beyond Houston, advancing trans causes and issues in the state. It offers many services for trans people including support groups, workshops, health care, housing referrals, and community events
(Advocate).
This is the kind of change and leadership we want to see from our elected officials.

Write, call, or email the Mayor to thank him for his bold and encouraging move.
