Texas State GOP: Ban All LGBT Rights And Protections

John Wright reports at Houston’s OutSmart Magazine:

Happy Pride Month from the Republican Party of Texas! Delegates to the GOP state convention in San Antonio approved a rabidly anti-LGBTQ party platform over the weekend.

Texas Republicans once again officially endorsed the dangerous, discredited practice of “ex-gay” therapy, including for “self-motivated” youth. They called on state officials to reject the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, and repeal Texas’ hate crimes law.

The 2018 platform also calls for the repeal of local nondiscrimination ordinances that protect LGBTQ people, and states that businesses and their employees should have a license to discriminate based on their religious beliefs.

The platform also calls for banning sex education in public schools, for banning any protections for transgender students, and for banning transgender military service. See their 24 anti-LGBT demands at the link.
