AUSTIN (KXAN) — Each week the in-depth reporting from the KXAN Investigates team will get a spotlight on KXAN Live.
A conversation will happen Wednesday morning with investigative reporter Kelly Wiley and KXAN Live anchor Will DuPree to break down one of this week’s top stories. People can watch a live stream of their discussion with Josh Hinkle, the director of investigations and innovation, as well as David Barer, senior investigative producer and reporter, starting at about 9 a.m. in this story or on the KXAN News Facebook page.
The story they’ll discuss this week is:
- In 2023, a fifth of the country’s state-level bills impacting the LGBTQ+ community were filed in Texas, according to a Human Rights Campaign analysis. Equality Texas tracked a record 141 such bills this year, up from just 12 in 2015. Some policies passed, and several others progressed substantially in the most recent legislative session. KXAN’s team of journalists — many LGBTQ+ staff members with unique, developed and inside perspectives providing nuance to our fair, rigorous and balanced reporting standards — produced multimedia stories for the “OutLaw” project, taking an in-depth look at what this trend could mean for Texas’ future.
Join Kelly Wiley and Will DuPree every Wednesday morning for a live recap of the latest headlines and in-depth reporting from the KXAN Investigates team.
