Just days before the November 8th election, sitting HISD Trustee Manuel Rodriguez highlighted his opponents support of LGBT rights and the fact that his opponent was openly gay as reasons for the voters of District III NOT to vote for him.
Additionally, Rodriguez conducted a television interview with a Spanish-language news channel where he posed the open-ended question of why a 50-something year old gay man would want access to our children.
The obvious gay-baiting and veiled homophobia fly in the face of a recently adopted nondiscrimination policy adopted by the Houston Independent School District which protects both students and facility from harassment on grounds which include sexual orientation and gender identity.
