WATCH: CNN Interview with Houston Mayor-Elect Annise Parker


CNN interviewed Houston mayor-elect Annise Parker following her victory on Saturday.

Says Parker: "What I hope that this election signals is something larger than me and the GLBT community. It's that Houston is a wonderful diverse international city that values people for what they can do more than who they are."

  1. Truly awesome way to end 2009. With the far right backlash using gay bashing as rallying charge. Congrats! Now openly gay Democrats can run for office in the Republican south. No longer do they have to be outed due to sex scandals. Even Frank and Studds never felt comfortable willingly leaving their closets.
