The Advocate reports that Tom Leppert, not Annise Parker, is mayor of Houston

The Advocate magazine reported today that Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert is the mayor of Houston. Given that Houston has the first openly gay mayor of any major U.S. city, one would think the national LGBT magazine wouldn’t make such a glaring error. But they did, and below is proof!

Incidentally, The Advocate made the error in a post about our story about alleged discrimination at the Joule Hotel’s PM Nightlife Lounge. The story quoted Leppert’s openly gay chief of staff, Chris Heinbaugh. But the hacks at the Advocate didn’t link to the Voice’s story — they linked to a write-up about our story on a Dallas Morning News blog. So in return, we figured we’d point out their embarrassing error. We wouldn’t want to link to their site, though, so we’ve just posted the screengrab.
