Registration lagging for Stonewall convention

Posted on 24 Feb 2009 at 2:03pm

The Texas Stonewall Democratic Caucus has brought in some big names for its first biennial statewide convention in Austin this weekend, including openly gay Congressman Jared Polis and longtime LGBT activist Matt Foreman, former head of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
But Dan Graney, president of TSDC, said he’s disappointed thus far with the response from the group’s members. Graney said only about 60 people had registered for the convention by Tuesday, Feb. 24, including only a handful from Dallas, which has the state’s largest Stonewall chapter.
Registration for the convention is $75, which includes lunch on Saturday and brunch on Sunday, as well as admission to a cocktail party and fundraiser for Polis on Saturday night. The convention will be followed by Equality Texas’ Lobby Day at the state Capitol on Monday.
