Should be a hot time in the Houston City Council chambers later this afternoon, and I’m not talking about the weather that will bring us our first 100 degree day of the summer.
The Houston City Council has a 2 PM session on Tuesdays for public comment on whatever issue you wish to bring to their attention. And with the suspension of the HERO happening no thanks to the Texas (Republican) Supreme Court, this first public comment session since the unjust ruling will probably be a lot more contentious than usual.
People in LGBT Houston are highly pissed off about what happened to a human rights ordinance we fought tooth and nail last year to get passed, have been mobilizing for action in defense of it, and will be there to let their voices be heard.
And I don’t doubt the out of town faux faith based opposition and their kneegrow useful fools will also be in attendance urging City Council to kill HERO.
And unfortunately due to some other pressing matters, i won’t be at City Council for the fun, but will be there in spirit and catching the replay of the session on cable TV later.
To all the peeps signed up to speak in defense of our human rights law, give the haters hell for me and I’ll see y’all at the next Tuesday session.
