Sometimes, a gay person grows up to be a mayor of a vibrant American city. That's the aspirational reality that LGBT kids of Houston currently know to be true, having lived for two years now with out lesbian Annise Parker at their city's helm.

Mayor Parker and her partner, Kathy Hubbard, have been together for twenty-one years, raising two adopted daughters and one foster son. I would say that yes, love did win out for her.
