President Obama takes two steps back, Analouisa Valencia classes up the pageant circuit, and Mike Rawlings makes excuses. Today's AggreGAYtor makes lemons out of lemonade.

• Delaware Gov. Jack Markell has introduced a marriage equality bill – likely to pass in the Democrat-controlled House and Senate.

• California is considering a bill that would eliminate tax breaks for any group that discriminates against LGBT or atheist members. You know, like the U.S. Senate.

• Here's a friendly reminder that President Obama still has some evolving to do.

• According to download history, one might want to take all of those hair shirts away from the Vatican.

Analouisa Valencia. Smell the citrusy scent. Spritz it on you wrist. Live for it.

• It's good to know that Courtland Rogers does not play for my team. If someone would tell me who the hell he is, I'll avoid him.

• DC Comics' Batgirl title has introduced a transgender character. Is it OK to say "you go girl" again? Because here it would be really useful.

• Among the things Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings bought during his recent visit to Robert Jeffress' First Baptist Mega-mall, was a heaping pile of bullshit.

• Three brothers in San Antonio have been officially charged with a hate crime after beating a gay neighbor.
