Connie Moore & Debbie Hunt
Pillar of Pride awarded in 2015
Rarely does a couple impact an organization in the way that Connie Moore and Debbie Hunt have. These two women are accomplished beyond compare. Not only do they have one of the longest running relationships as a couple in the LGBA, they are pioneers in the legal community in the Houston/Galveston area.
Connie first joined the Houston Pride Band in 1988 and immediately set as one of her goals to become involved at the LGBA level, bringing her gifts of charm, business acumen, leadership, and production experience to the national organization. Connie and Debbie, along with a small core group of dedicated members struggled through the ’90s to keep the band alive… down to just twelve members at its lowest point. After years of hard work, commitment, and a passion for music, the band is thriving once again, performing beautiful concerts with 40-50 musicians on stage.
Connie also participated in many other LGBA events, including Gay Games, annual conferences, and presidential inaugurations throughout the decades. In 2010, at Cologne’s Gay Games VIII, she received a Legacy Medal from the international Federation of Gay Games for her many years of contributions to the Cultural Festival at the Gay Games.
As attorneys specializing in family law, Connie and Debbie dealt with edgy, breakthrough issues for the LGBT community. During their 25 years of practice, they focused on securing legal rights for parents in same-sex relationships through adoption, surrogacy, and child custody litigation, estate planning, probate and guardianship litigation, contract negotiations, and corporate and small business formation. They have been voted “Best Attorneys – Houston and Galveston” in OutSmart Magazine’s annual Gayest & Greatest Survey from 2009 to 2014.
