Texas State Agency Scrubs LGBTQ Resources From Website


The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) removed LGBTQ youth resources from its government-run site after Governor Greg Abbott was criticized by a primary opponent.

In August, Republican gubernatorial candidate Don Huffines released a video on Twitter blasting the DFPS for allegedly “promoting transgender sexual policies to Texas youth” through a section titled “Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation” on the Texas Youth Connection (TYC) website. Huffines is challenging Abbott in next year’s election.
