Utah behaves pleasantly, the Grammys keep people talking, and Wendy Davis gets a nod, as your AggreGAYtor make your head asplode.

Urgent: A treaty being written in secret by Congress and more than 600 corporations may be fast-tracked if we don’t do something like call our representatives or join the national wave of protests. It may not be a queer cause, but it’s definitely a social justice issue, because the TPP, or “NAFTA on steroids,” essentially gives multinational corporations the power to override consumer protections and erode national sovereignty.

The Good

Utah held its opposing rallies on marriage equality, and (SPOILER) everyone was very nice.

The moonie-style wedding at the Grammys certainly got people talking, even in Mississippi.

A number of organizations including the AGLCC and the Austin City Council are teaming up to bring more LGBTQ tourism to town.

The HRC endorsement goes to Wendy Davis.

Inequality even affects 92-year-old trans widows, but progress can change that.

The Bad

Regarding marriage equality, some New Mexico legislators are strongly in favor of two steps back.

Nigeria’s new anti-gay laws are hurting more than just the persecuted minority.

Although its bill remains unsigned, Uganda seems to already be rounding up the queers.

The Fugly

Disney put lesbians on TV, so several hundred moms are calling for a boycott.

Illinois’ bishop is totally risking his church’s nonprofit status, like, a lot.
