LGBTQ+ family asking for £12,000 to flee ‘hostile’ state ‘before it’s too late’

A family are desperately trying to raise $15,000 to leave Texas as they claim it becomes “more hostile” to the LGBT+ community. They say they hate to leave the home they’ve had their whole lives but they “need to act fast before it’s too late.” The fundraiser, set up by mum-of-two Kara Duncan, hopes to raise the money to move to a “more favourable” state. Texas is one of the many US states where LGBT rights are being restricted by conservative legislators. Kara, who lives in Paris, Texas, with her two children and trans boyfriend, wrote: “Texas has been our home our whole lives, but the past few years especially it has become more hostile to people in the LGBTQIA+ community. As a pan woman I am living with the fear everyday that by being out and being myself something will happen to our family if we don’t leave the state for a more favourable one soon.
