LUCA’s Carlos Turcios An anti-transgender event scheduled to be held Saturday, April 20, at Fort Worth’ Victory Forest Community Center has been cancelled over concerns that it would violate the city’s nondiscrimination policy, according to the Fort Worth Report. But Carlos Turcious, director of Texas  Latinos United for Conservative Action told FWR cancellation was “unacceptable and inappropriate … .

That is a violation of the First Amendment. The city of Fort Worth … cannot dictate what opinions are allowed. The event was titled “The Danger of Transgenderism.” Lynette Sharp, a member of the group No Hate in Texas which was instrumental in forcing hate-based Stedfast Baptist Church to move out of Watauga and Hurst, was one of the first to raise concerns over LUCA holding its anti-trans event at a city facility.

She told FWR when she first heard about the LUCA event, she called the community center to ask about booking space for an event herself.

After the center staff gave her booking information, she told them the event would be focused on why Christians shouldn’t exist anymore.
