Texpatriate has learned that Mayor Annise Parker will marry her longtime partner next month in California. Parker, who has long definitively stated that she planned on getting hitched only when Texas legalized gay marriage, reportedly altered her tune in recent days.
Mayor Parker has been together with her partner, Kathy Hubbard, for over 20 years and the duo has now raised three adoptive children. Back in August, when CNN covered the Mayoral race, they quoted the Mayor saying that she wants to get married “in her City.” However, a recent Houston Chronicle article on this topic notes that she may have changed her mind somewhat substantially in light of the recent transitions.
The wedding will be held in “mid-January” in Palm Springs, California. We will report more when we receive additional information.
