Hundreds of LGBTQ+ activists protested outside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s mansion after he called for investigations into the parents of trans children.

On 13 March, around 500 people took part in a demonstration against the state’s anti-trans initiatives. They held signs that featured messages such as “Protect Trans Kids” and “Defend Trans Rights”.

The protest, which took place in Austin, was live streamed on Twitch to ensure that those unable to attend could still get involved.

Many of its attendees gave speeches about trans rights to the audience. Among these was Diamond Stylz, executive director of Black Transwomen, Inc., who said: “One of my favourite African proverbs is: ‘Until the lion tells the story, the hunter will always be the hero.’ “I think that’s important in this time because what these people are doing is a legacy of trying to demonise marginalised people.
