congrats, houston!

let me tell you, it is getting easier to tell people that i am from texas (without having to explain that i am one of the ones who left). congrats to houston!

i am really heartened too to see gender identity included in this order, because too often the mainstream community leadership has removed (or seemed willing to remove) protections for our transgender and genderqueer siblings. thank you, annise.
