Houstonians Petition City Hall for Referendum to Put Gender Identity Issue on the November Ballot

Opponents of Houston's equal rights ordinance have submitted petitions calling for a voter referendum to put a gender identity issue on the ballot in November, but the mayor says it's not going to happen.

Anti-gay activist Dave Wilson presented boxes of petitions to Houston City Hall that he said bore the signatures of 20,000 voters calling for a referendum on a city charter amendment defining one's gender as whatever sex was assigned at birth.

Doug Miller, KHOU, has the story.
