The Good

Congratulations to Joe McAdams of AIDS Services of Austin for making the Poz 100 List, an honor given to 100 people each year for service in the commitment to ending the epidemic of HIV/AIDS.

Queer Nation continues to act up in light of Russia’s anti-gay meltdown.

Protests begin as Uganda prosecutes its LGBTQ citizens.

Catholics of various queer persuasions may soon be returning to the Church, assuming the hierarchy follows the pope’s lead (so far, not so much, but there’s hope).

The Bad

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says he needs six months to decide whether to stop discriminating against service members in same-sex marriages.

The Cheney affair gets more nuanced, and demonstrates how respecting intolerance is not a solution (and that straight conservatives are completely obsessed with sex).

The United Methodist Church is putting a minister on trial for performing a marriage.

The Fugly

The Young Conservatives of Texas chapter at UT Austin is organizing a “criminalize an undocumented worker” event.

Anti-gay Chik-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is honored in Atlanta as a “champion of justice.”

According to this guy from the Family Research Council, Jesus was a juiced-up douchebag.
