H-Town Pride

Although we're one of the largest cities in the United States, Houston is lacking in a lot of ways. We don't have a unique, unifying personality. We're not a mecca for celebrities. Our mass transit sucks.

But you know what we do have?

The nations's first lesbian mayor.

In your face, Los Angeles.

Brother Christopher said...

uh Los Angeles? Shouldn't it be like, oh, I dunno, San Francisco aka Gay Mecca? Have you been to Los Angeles? I wouldn't exactly call it gay rights capital or anything.

Yay! great news.

Christopher, I'm very resentful of Los Angeles right now, because the LA guys on Bear411 are way hotter than the Houston guys. So I need something to hold over y'all's heads.

From her acceptance speech:

"I am proud, very proud, to have been elected the very first graduate of Rice University to be mayor of Houston..."

Now that's class. My dad went to Rice. I've gotten drunk at Valhalla, the on-campus pub. Finally, Houstonians have gotten over their blatant anti-Rice bigotry and elected a true patriot.

Dearest and Queerest Evn,
I would take a less pretty Houston man over a stuck up LA bear any day.
Seriously, they walk around town like they are smelling cookies.

Evn said...

Christopher, I will take those words to heart. :)

Are you on 411? What's your screenname?

Congratulations Texas! And don't even think about it New York, Hilary is not even the mayor. Oh, and she is not lesbian either.
