Your thoughts

As the old saying goes, kstnsnc: "Don't let the door hit you on the A** on the way out of town"

(And, God forbid if a child of this bigot is gay).

I see before me in this video: a woman of strong commitment to HER family first, her city and now...and hopefully her office.
She's raised two fine children (is her daughter drop dead gorgeous or what?) and has a wife by her side for nearly two decades.
This is a family America can be proud of. I wish her well, and I wish the residents of Houston the same.

Texas seems to like it's lesbians. For instance, Travis County sure loved having a lesbian sherrif.

Best blog title...ever.

You know what's sad? If anti-gay activists hadn't made this race a battle about her sexuality, I wouldn't have even known squat about this mayoral race. I can't wait for the day when the election of LGBT officials doesn't make national news in this way.

Nevertheless, congratulations, Mayor Parker!
