Mayor Annise Parker is the first openly gay mayor of a city with over a million residents. Now it appears that she is pushing her sexual orientation onto Houston, Texas, by creating a majority gay council district. (Please see article posted below.)

Mayor Parker Leaves Press Conference Amidst Rumors

HOUSTON - Mayor Annise Parker abruptly walked out of her own press conference at City Hall on Tuesday afternoon.
That came after reporters repeatedly questioned Parker about rumors she and some other council members are trying to create a majority gay council district in Houston.
She answered several questions about redistricting and quickly walked out of the room.
"That's all I have to say about this issue," said Parker. "That's it. This is not what this press conference is about."
Rumors have run wild after Conservative Councilman Mike Sullivan was removed from a position that would oversee redistricting in the city.
One reporter responded by saying this was the Mayor's only availability for the day.
The press briefing at City Hall was actually called to address a national award the Houston Police Department received for addressing mental issues.
As a result of a major population increase the city of Houston is slated for redistricting in 2011. The move would create two new council districts.
