I'm proud to provide legal services for transgender people in San Antonio and throughout Texas. In some respects, it's the best time in our history to be transgender, as more and more people are becoming aware of transgender people. But as the recent bathroom bill controversy is showing us, there's also a lot of misunderstanding about who transgender people are and what they're not.
It's now been nearly two weeks since the terrible tragedy at Orlando's Pulse nightclub, and after an initial outpouring of support for the victims and the survivors, we're beginning to see the story fade from our collective consciousness. Investigators are still trying to determine what the killer's real motivations were, with some questions about how motivated by jihad he really was, but those stories are getting less and less attention. The Senate held votes for new gun laws earlier this week after a filibuster inspired by the tragedy, but none of those proposed laws were actually passed.
