Q Toon: We Have a Problem

Houston voted overwhelmingly to overturn the city's Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), dubbed the "Bathroom Act" by its opponents. Lt. Governor Dan Patrick campaigned against HERO with ads showing a scary-looking man opening a rest room stall door and frightening a little girl inside the stall.

The results of last Tuesday's offyear elections were not all bad news for LGBT citizens. Salt Lake City, Utah, of all places, elected a lesbian mayor, Jackie Biskupski, over incumbent Ralph Becker (pending the results of counting absentee ballots), as well as a second gay city council member.

To all our veterans out there, from wars past and present, and especially to those still fighting wars within, my deepest gratitude for your service.
