Texas State Rep. Lon Burnam announces HB 1300 Freedom To Marry For ALL

February 15, 2013 ·


Transgender Texans are ‘allowed’ to marry the opposite sex but sadly we know all too well that these marriages do not stand legal challenges.

And what is we want to marry a person who is of the same sex? Marriage equality is for everyone transgender, gay, cisgender or straight.

Rep. Lon Burnam announced HB 1300 (text) (current status) as his Valentine present to us. His legislation to extend the freedom to marry to all Texans, gay and straight or transgender.

Love ya Daniel. You rock. See you on the 11th.
