It has been a sad and uncertain few days here at Out Youth following the decision to advance Senate Bill 6, the anti-transgender bathroom bill, to the full Senate. Many folks from Out Youth, including Sarah Kapostasy, Kathryn Gonzales, Izzy Star, and Cassidy Laminack, spoke passionately in defense of transgender and gender non-binary Texans, especially our youth. ⠀

If you or someone you know is in need of support, please have they reach out to us here at Out Youth at 512-419-1233. If you or someone you know is currently experiencing a medical or mental health emergency, please call 911. You can also reach out for support from the Trans Lifeline at 877-565-8860 or the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386. ⠀

We know that transgender and gender non-binary people are feeling especially vulnerable right now. If you are an ally, please take a moment reach out to your trans and non-binary friends and family members, then learn about our #TakeMyHandTexas campaign by visiting http://takemyhandtexas.org

“I would say life is short so you might as well live your authentic self. I guess for someone in my position who has just come out, it’s really cliche but things do eventually get better and you will have a lot of issues and trials and tribulations and things that are not so great, but in the end it’s worth being who you really are because that’s what going to make you fulfilled at the end of your life."⠀

We are sharing the stories of our LGBTQ+ youth as part of our #TakeMyHandTexas campaign. We want to remind Texans everywhere to stand up for and protect our transgender and gender non-binary youth, especially during this Special Session.⠀

“I have really early memories of not feeling like a girl, as far back as kindergarten or first grade but I didn’t have the words to put to how I felt so I kind of just repressed it for a long time. And then, I came out as a trans person about a year ago, maybe a little more.⠀
"I originally came out here at Out Youth so obviously everyone was super supportive and accepting and immediately got everything right, which was really cool. I’m still not out to my former classmates cause I’m going to a different school now, so they never knew which is great because they were not accepting it all.”⠀

“A quarter of a million children is not a niche issue. It is a human rights crisis.” - Izzy Star, Programs Coordinator

My thoughts are with everyone at the Capital today fighting for #humanrights! I have been speaking with clients and their parents who are processing their thoughts and feelings about the #txlege. Big shout out to everyone using their voices today! #strong #takemyhandtexas #transboysareboys #transgirlsaregirls #gender #transgender #supporttransyouth #ATX #atxlove #austin #austintx #austintherapist #texas #peeinpeace

Our Clinical Services Director, Sarah Kapostasy, flat out rocked her testimony. She spoke firmly in support of her family, her partner, and our youth. ❤️ #takemyhandtexas #transgirlsaregirls #transboysareaboys #nobinarykidsarekids #yallmeansall #txlege

“I am actually trans, I identify as male. Mom is still dealing with it. She is calling me by my name now. The pronouns are still difficult but I’m happy that progress is being made. I’m hoping there will continue to be progress in my direct family.”⠀

So proud of long-time volunteer @reneslats for his impassioned testimony before the Senate State Affairs Committee.

“The worker behind the desk was like, 'wait you’re trans?' and it was like the best moment in my life. Actually someone not knowing I was trans and being able to pass as a guy in there, just the best day of my life. I felt so validated.”⠀

Inspired by the national #IllGoWithYou project, the #TakeMyHandTexas campaign combats discrimination against transgender and gender non-binary people across the state.

Out Youth @outyouth wants to empower allies of the transgender community to stand with them, to reach out and offer to walk with them in any gendered space – be that a visit to a doctor, a social event, or even something as simple as going to grab a cup of coffee.

The cornerstone of the campaign is a button, simple in design, but clear in its message. A single outstretched hand signifies that the wearer is an ally to the transgender community and will gladly accompany someone to any gender-specific space they feel uncomfortable going to alone, including the bathroom.

Get your button in this month's #ActivateUs box via @circleofhealth. Link in profile.
