Default Everything's Queerer in Texas



At least 42 openly LGBTQ candidates will be running in Texas in 2018. Thatís an unprecedented number! Only 6 of the 42 candidates are incumbents & many are running for the first time! There are 5 transgender candidates in the mix.

{the full list of candidates is on the link via OutSmart below}


With equality under attack by the Trump administration and the Texas Legislature, LGBTQ candidates across the state are lining up to fight back.

A record of at least 42 openly LGBTQ people are running for public office in Texas in 2018, according to an extensive review by OutSmart. Thatís roughly three times as many as in any previous election cycle in the stateís history.

The unprecedented field of LGBTQ candidates includes two for governor, one for Texas Supreme Court, three for Texas Senate, 10 for Texas House, eight for Congress, and dozens for various judicial seats.

Twenty-one of the LGBTQ candidates are female, and 21 are male. Five are transgender, three are African-American, and eight are Hispanic. Six are incumbents who are among the stateís 18 current LGBTQ elected and appointed officials.
