Since the 1990s, we have faithfully organized progressive people of faith to advocate for the full inclusion of the LGBTQ Texans – equality before God and equality under the law.
Because our faith convicts us, we strive to maintain and expand freedom and protection for the LGBTQ community. Our faith calls us to oppose anti-LGBTQ legislation, discriminatory religious exemption laws masquerading as “religious freedom,” or any other attempts to treat Texas’ LGBTQ community as second-class citizens.

We celebrate winning marriage equality in the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015! We know that the large movement for LGBTQ inclusion and affirmation in faith communities helped change enough hearts and minds to get us this win. And we still have work to do. People of faith must continue to speak out to support and celebrate the LGBTQ community publicly and politically. There’s too much at stake. Just Texas commits to the ongoing mobilization of faith voices to champion the full inclusion of LGBTQ Texans.
We invite you to join us as we proclaim a faith narrative that preaches inclusion and affirmation of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. We offer opportunities for education around the full participation of LGBTQ people in faith communities, especially transgender inclusion. We are engaged in local and state politics protecting LGBTQ Texans and our religious freedom.
