Eiserloh follows political trail blazed by mentor Glen Maxey
April 12, 2020 by Ryan Autulio
Before Glen Maxey took office in 1991 as the first openly gay member in the Texas Legislature, he had to find someone to replace him at his old job.
A surprise winner in a House special election in Austin, Maxey had made a name for himself in political circles as the executive director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas.
He passed the torch to the only other employee in the office, a lobbyist fresh out of law school who had started a few weeks earlier: Laurie Eiserloh.
