Keep Austin Proud

Keep Austin Proud PAC seeks to combat hate and defend the rights of LGBTQ+ people across Texas for fair access bathrooms according to their self-identified gender.
Your donations will fund
1.) Yard signs to raise awareness
2.) Gender-neutral bathroom signs in local businesses, and
3.) Bumper stickers in support LGBTQ+ equal rights bathroom access.

 "All parents are concerned about the safety of their children, but the Texas lieutenant governor is exploiting that parental instinct to attack a vulnerable community, subjecting transgender children and adults to harm when they pose no risk to others,” says Lou Weaver, Transgender Programs Coordinator or Equity Texas”. "These … laws are unenforceable without massive police intrusion on privacy rights, and they create an expensive liability for businesses and educators.”

This initiative benefits all people interested in fair access to restrooms as well as setting a moral compass on dignified treatment of minority communities. We believe our elected officials must fulfill their duty to protect the safety, dignity and well-being of all Texans.

The funds will be managed by Keep Austin Proud PAC, a GLBTQ+ non-profit organization spurred into action in response to recent actions by the Texas Legislature targeting LGBTQ+ people. One-hundred percent of funds will be used to raise public awareness to promote fair treatment of underrepresented minorities in Texas. Your support bolsters the support of representatives with the fortitude to stand up for LGBTQ+ rights. Time is of the essence as the The Texas Legislature will reconvene for a special session to debate this very issue on July 18th, 2017.
