Our People


The Texas Democratic Party was the first southern party to proudly endorse marriage equality. We stand with the LGBT community in the fight to ensure all Texans benefit from the civil rights that each of us deserves; the fight for equality affects us all. Since President Obama took office, Democrats have made tremendous progress in this fight for equality: strengthening hate-crimes legislation named for Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr., actively supporting and initiating the repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell," and fighting to end the Defense of Marriage Act. We believe the diversity of our state is what makes us strong; the LGBT community plays a key role in that strength.
