Beyonce faces backlash from Houston’s LGBT community after silence over HERO law support

Beyonce has come under fire from the LGBT community after remaining silent despite pleas for support over the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance.

Activist Carlos Maza had penned a blog asking the Queen Bey for help earlier this year as HERO – which prohibited “discrimination on the basis of 15 different characteristics, including race, sex, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity” – was under threat from a public repeal vote.

The singer was born in Houston, Texas, and Carlos hoped that, paired with her previous outspoken support of the LGBT community, he could convince her to speak out.
