Thanks for publishing my photograph, @TexasObserver. While the headline of this and other pieces might imply that love isn’t winning, read to the end:

Upton, however, points to Gilmore’s dismissal order in the case as a sign of what the federal courts will do if Texas judges don’t change their tune on marriage equality. While Gilmore says the Houston benefits case is “not yet ripe for review,” she writes that Texas judges are still required to follow the precedent set by Obergefell that makes it “constitutionally impermissible” for a city to deny benefits to same-sex spouses of employees.

…because in the end, love always wins 🙂 .

The U.S. Supreme Court won’t intervene in Houston case challenging benefits for same-sex spouses of city employees.
