Rep. Marc Veasey to Join LGBT Caucus

U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey (D-Fort Worth) will join the LGBT Caucus this session, making him only the third current member of the Texas delegation to do so.

“I promise you I will represent LGBT issues very strongly,” he told Dallas’ Stonewall Democrats last night at Ojeda’s. “It’s something I will continue to talk about because it’s the right thing to do. Attitudes are changing in our country.”

Veasey will join Houston’s Sheila Jackson Lee and Dallas’ Eddie Bernice Johnson on the caucus. Former San Antonio Rep. Charlie Gonzalez was also a part of the group.

“I think the people who are against equality in this country, they’re in the minority now. They are people who are holding onto something in the past and stopping the rest of the country from moving forward.”

Watch the rest of Veasey’s remarks in the above video.
