Austin scores a perfect 100 on equality from the HRC (one of eight cities with perfect scores in states with no supportive laws), while Dallas and Fort Worth get an A-, Houston gets a D, and San Antonio gets a solid B. No other city scored above an F, and the lowest score goes to Laredo, with a 2.

Illinois is now officially the 16th state to recognize marriage rights.

Magic Johnson has some words of wisdom for all of us, and he also loves his gay son.

Scotland already recognizes civil unions, but may go ahead and recognize marriage equality soon.

The Bad

The Fugly
