Lone Star voters tip hats to gay foursome

by Jeremy Hooper

200803051358Gay politicians had a big night in Texas last night. And no, we're not implying anything about Hillary. We're talking about Lupe Valdez, Rosemary Lehmberg, Steve Kirkland, and Andres Pereira, four out lesbian and gay Texans who made political advancements in last night's primary. GayPoltiics.com has more:

We'll have to wait and see if any or all of the quartet ultimately end up winning the prizes that they seek. But hey, if the Alamo can survive for centuries, surely A-bunch-of-'mos can survive a little political game playing.

Your thoughts

I have lived in Texas most of my life and have never been hassled for being out & gay. Texans are very accepting of good, honest, hard-working folk.

Edward: I, for one, wouldn't deny that for a second. I've had only positive person experiences with the state.
