Houston Texas becomes largest US city to elect openly gay Mayor!!!!
Congrats to Annise Parker who took home a whopping 53% of the vote to become the Mayor of Houston, Texas, who just happens to be a out lesbian, and who sexuality played little role in the campaign for election. Turns out when times are tough the economy matters more than who sleeps with who. Houston, TX joins, Providence, RI and Portland , OR (hey Sam!) as cities with openly gay mayors.
