PostHeaderIcon Houston makes history again...

Although Mayor-elect Parker is not Houston's first gay mayor (see Hoffienze & the Chutes leather bar back-room bust in the late 70's), she is the second female mayor, first openly gay mayor and the first mayor-elect in a generation that beat out the back-room selected candidate of the business-elites.

It was a campaign that, for many of us, is a sign of the ascendency of Houston's LGBT power base - and a hopeful sign for things to come.
