First, yesterday was my birthday, so I enjoyed a relaxing day (more so due to the activity in Saturday’s city council election). It helps that the sky is gray and it’s been raining on and off. The day actually is a good representation of how I am generally feeling.
Next, Chris lost his election bid for Frisco City Council. A lot can be said about this, but I’m not going to say much here. Chris didn’t lose because he wasn’t the most qualified or the most experienced, he lost because he is gay. More on that in a separate post.
On May 12, I graduated from UNT with a BA (Sociology). I am now in the process of waiting for my work authorization from the government so I can practice a little bit of what I learnt. Following this, I will be returning to UNT to complete my graduate program. At this stage I hope to study Queer Theory as it relates to Communities. I’ll work on refining this as the time passes by, but that is my current plan.
Earlier this year, a good friend of ours and former Frisco Mayor, Kathy Seei announced that she was going to run for Congress, and we are helping her out on her campaign. There is a lot to be done, but if anyone has the opportunity to replace Ralph Hall, it will be Kathy.
