Robert Salcido Jr. has worked hard to own who he is both privately and publicly. Robert is a advocate for the LGBT community. When the debate over expanding San Antonio' s nondiscrimination ordinance to include LGBT erupted, he gave up a successful business to defend the rights of his community. His story of coming out to his family gives us a sense of why it is so important for him.
Robert told this story at our March 1 show, with the theme "In Service."
Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live, storytelling event series that tries to bring out the Sound of San Antonio through the stories of your friends and neighbors.
