Later this week, Houston will host the Creating Change 2014 Conference. It’s the largest national gathering of activists, organizers and leaders in the LGBT movement. In advance of the conference, we explore developments in city and statewide policies impacting the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender community, including non-discrimination, same sex marriage, and adoption. We hear your questions for Daniel Williams, Legislative Specialist for Equality Texas, and Maverick Welsh, President of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus.

Then, we turn our attention to the “T” in LGBT, and talk with Lou Weaver. He’s co-chair of the Creating Change Conference, and a past president of the Transgender Foundation of America, based here in Houston. We discuss some unique challenges facing the transgender community.
