Houston, TX elects an open lesbian mayor!

Go, Houston! Annise Parker is going to be the new mayor of Houston as of January 1st, and is an out lesbian.

Parker has never made her sexuality to be a secret, and “it became the focus of the election race after anti-gay activists and conservative religious groups endorsed Locke and sent out mailers condemning Parker’s “homosexual behavior.” Ick. Luckily, these efforts didn’t change the ultimate support that Parker had.

This is one great win for the LGBTQ community in Houston, but also the rest of the country. Awesome!
