How Houston Is Being Duped by Bigoted Zealots
When Annise Parker was elected to the office of mayor in Houston in 2009 it was a loud message that the old, conservative oil and gas town was finally beginning to reflect the place many of its residents already knew it to be: a forward thinking, world-class city with thriving LGBTQ and arts communities and a long resume of innovations in medicine and tech which long ago outgrew its dusty, Urban Cowboy roots. She was, after all, the country's first openly gay mayor, and was now in charge of one of the most diverse cities in the US. It's ironic, then, that upon taking office, Parker learned that Houston was the only large city in Texas—and one of the only ones in the country, in fact—that didn't have on its books an Equal Rights Ordinance, one that adds an extra layer to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to offer protection against discrimination in public and private sectors.
