Texas Stonewall Democrats officials today (Wednesday, Aug. 16) issued a press release to clarify that their organization is not affiliated with a new activist organization called The New Stonewall Dallas.

According to the statement:

“It has been brought to the attention of the Texas Stonewall Democratic Caucus Leadership that there is a new group (page) calling itself “The New Stonewall Dallas.” Apparently this is a new small activist group and is not a political “Democratic Party” organization.
The Texas Stonewall Democratic Caucus would like to state that this group is NOT in any way affiliated with or a part of the Texas Stonewall Democratic Caucus or Stonewall Democrats, which is the only “officially recognized” LGBT Democratic organization by both the state and national Democratic Party.
While the name “Stonewall” is not copyrighted and anyone in the community is free to use the name, we want to make sure that there is absolutely no confusion between the two groups
based on nomenclature. Unfortunately, the name that was chosen by this other group can initially give the impression that they may be somehow affiliated with Stonewall Democrats and this is NOT the case.”
