As I mentioned yesterday, openly gay Houston Mayor Annise Parker provided the welcoming speech for this weekend’s convention of LGBT journalists. Miami Herald reporter Steve Rothaus recorded the speech. His clip description:
Houston Mayor Annise Parker speaks at the 2012 National LGBT Editor/Blogger Convening about being elected to a second term; her longtime life partner Kathy Hubbard and being co-chair of Mayors for the Freedom to Marry; and the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida. Parker is introduced by Denis Dison of Victory Fund and the panel is moderated by Bil Browning of Bilerico Project. The event was sponsored by the Evelyn & Walter Haas Jr. Fund and the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA).
