The first openly gay person to be elected mayor of Houston says she hopes her victory in Saturday's election will change how the world views the city.

It certainly has changed my view. Now, Houston ranks right up there with San Francisco as a place I don't want to visit.

How long before there's a rainbow flag flying from City Hall?

I kind of doubt that will happen. I should mention that she probably benefitted from the anti-Obama vote given the race of her opponent.

I oppose gay marriage and all the other stuff but to me it doesn’t matter what a public official does in the privacy of their quarters as long as they don’t try and push their lifestyle if the public they represent doesn’t want it.

Given that Houston is a third black and a third Hispanic I seriously doubt that you’ll be seeing a “gay revolution” there any time soon and I get the strangest feeling is the person was a real radical “gay all the way” kind of gal she wouldn’t be the Mayor-Elect
