Title: Radio Song
Texas Rep. James Frank, R-Wichita Falls, vice chairman of the House Human Services Committee, has authored House Bill 3859, which could allow discrimination against LGBT individuals serving as foster parents. We will discuss this legislation with Chuck Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Equality Texas, the state's leading LGBTQ advocacy organization. We will also examine the concept of "religious liberty" underlying many bills filed in the legislature this session that attempt to provide legal cover for discrimination against the queer community. And we will preview "Contemporary Relationships 2017," Equality Texas's fourth annual conference dedicated to strengthening contemporary LGBTQ relationships to be held May 5 - 6 in Houston at the Council on Recovery.
