Houston has become the largest US city to elect an openly gay mayor. Congrats to Annise Parker and the City.
The celebration for the new mayor has been so flamboyant (see what I did there?) that you may have missed all the news about a new-ish Ugandan bill that makes homosexuality a crime punishable by death and enables the Ugandan government to use their powers of extradition to bring ex-pats back to the country for prosecution and, presumably, execution.
Pretty much makes me sick. And very sad to live in a world that could be so fucked up.
