Gay Houston Mayoral Candidate Ahead In Polls HuffPost - http://bit.ly/6Fnhx9
Let's hope the people of Houston can rise above the hate. The out and about candidate has a resumé that few can match. She also has never made any effort to hide her sexuality.

Cross your fingers and light a candle that right thinking wins out over the darkness in Houston.
