“Anatomy of a Losing HERO Campaign”


None of the overpaid, underworked elites of HRC should be permitted to cash another paycheck until they read this piece by Monica Roberts

One of the proudest moments of my activist life was on May 28, 2014 when the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance passed on a 11-6 vote after a month of contentious City Council meetings. So I was justifiably angry when HERO went down last week by a 61 percent to 39 percent margin.

Now that I’ve had time to do hard, solid thinking about the issue and read commentary from people who don’t live inside Beltway 8, it’s time to talk about the political train wreck I watched happen.

…and then read it again and again and again and again and again – and explain why someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Monica was not, well over a decade ago, offered gainful employment at an organization that claims not to be racist and transmisogynistic and also claims to actually be an advocate for trans people and trans issues.
