The ACLU of Texas is dedicated to securing and defending constitutional and civil rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) Texans.

LGBTQIA+ Texans lack the most basic protections against discrimination under state law. Many LGBTQIA+ Texans — including especially vulnerable groups like LGBTQIA+ Texans of color, transgender Texans, and LGBTQIA+ Texas youth — face workplace discrimination, housing discrimination, health care discrimination, bullying, and violence because of their identity.

We are committed to securing protections for these vulnerable groups by fighting for LGBTQIA+ equality in Texas schools, courts, city council chambers, and at the state legislature.
