The Good

Pope Francis is in favor of civil unions.

The new Trans 100 list should be out any minute.

Former Miss Kentucky is ready to talk about coming out and life in Louisville.

Inviting people to come watch an anti-gay murder is a sign of serious problems.

Ukraine is likely to have some LGBT problems for a while.

Louisiana just killed a housing non-discrimination bill.

The Fugly

Dallas Pride is just asking to get Queerbombed. Thankfully it’s happening.
