This panel will create dialogue on how San Antonio is finding new ways to increase civic participation within LGBTQ communities. As more LGBTQ+ people choose to live in San Antonio, local government leaders will find themselves facing increasingly complex issues. Demands for senior housing, tensions around fairness and equality, and addressing the complexities of intersectionality between these communities, are just some of policy making goals our city needs to talk about. Engaging the LGBTQ+ community in the city-making process leads to better solutions and civic engagement.
