Today we launched the #IPEEWITHLGBT campaign with the ACLU of Texas and Legacy Community Health. With participation from five-time Academy Award-nominated director and Austin local, Richard Linklater, this campaign stands against the bathroom bill and stands for equality.

“Discriminatory legislation is not what this country is about,” said Duff Stewart, CEO of Austin, Texas-based GSD&M. “We need to speak up when we can.”
GSD&M has been no stranger to getting involved in political and civil rights issues, having joined the group Texas Competes two years ago, which aims to push against discriminatory measures and support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
