The AggreGAYtor: April 23

By David Estlund, April 23, 2014, 9:30am, The Gay Place

Indonesia shows some Muslim empathy, Georgia brings us closer to justice, and the nation's judges, like Washington D.C., show us what discrimination looks like, as your AggreGAYtor miraculously limits political bribery.

The Good

Indonesia has an Islamic school for transgender citizens. Again.

Georgia joins the list of states with challenges to their marriage bans on the docket.

Apparently marriage better for gays than straights (so far), and parenting is parenting.

That play in South Carolina that’s under attack by conservatives? It’s a hit.

Parker Molloy forgives us all, as long as we quit saying “tranny” and “shemale.” Because that’s ugly.

The Bad

Anti-LGBTQ discrimination in custody cases isn’t catching up to public opinion or scientific concensus.

The district of Washington D.C. is weeding out LGBT programs.

The Fugly

Let’s flip the script and ignore whatever hideous things white straight cis male people with power said this week: it might not get better. It definitely won’t be continuous improvement. But we can be there, for each other.
