Equality Across America – Texas Conference. Are “Ya’ll” Ready to Rumble?

You can stop asking what you can do to help further equality in the United States (and beyond) now. As previously discussed on Closet Talk with Tanner Efinger, Equality Across America has made a call to action for the week of Harvey Milk Day (May 22). In response, grassroots organizations and activists have been popping up all over the country.

Organizing of the EAA – Texas conference is well underway, with most of the logistics already worked out. Now, we get to do the fun stuff. Remember though, even if you can’t help organize, you can start planning to attend.

We had hoped for a large turnout; however, upon arriving at the rally point, only about 20 people were standing around the small stage, still furiously attempting to make their signs for the impromptu rally.
