Open To All
Open To All

This year has been brutal for the LGBTQIA+ community in Texas and across the country. Following a grueling legislative session, the Supreme Court of the United States fanned the flames of anti-LGBTQIA+ sentiment with their ruling in 303 Creative v Elenis, which creates a limited first amendment exception to public accommodation and nondiscrimination protections. In short, if you are an artist, and your work requires you to speak, you are allowed to reject projects that would compel you to express ideas that do not align with your moral or religious beliefs. For example, a speechwriter cannot be compelled to write a speech for a political candidate, an artist cannot be compelled to take a commission for a violent painting, and a Muslim cannot be compelled to create a zionist website.

Despite the decision’s very narrow scope, we have already seen businesses across the country distort and leverage it to perpetrate their own hateful agenda. So, we’re countering this with bold, unwavering support and a dash of Southern hospitality; Y’all means OPEN TO ALL! We know that Texans are overwhelmingly supportive of their LGBTQIA+ neighbors. For business owners who want to make clear that their establishment is open and welcoming to all customers, including members of the LGBTQIA+ community, we’ve created a simple way to signal that you’re an ally.
