• Testified before the Texas Senate & House committees on state affairs twice during the 2017 Texas bathroom bill fight.
• Testified again in 2019 against discriminatory legislation in the Texas legislation.
• I volunteer my time to Equality Texas to influence legislation in my state, and The LGBT Victory Institute to promote diversity in political office around the world.
•I march, I speak but mostly I am an out, proud transgender woman willing to speak up.
