The AggreGAYtor: July 2

By David Estlund, July 2, 2014, 9:30am, The Gay Place

Texas Democrats push back, Kentucky gets a prenup, and Petticoat Fair falls on its face, as your AggreGAYtor switches from congress of the crow to the congress of families.

The Good

Texas Dems unveil their new platform, with shiny new rainbow planks and a slogan that beats the hyperbolic #bornperfect hashtag campaign: #wedontneedfixin.

Trans Californians now find changing birth sex easier.

President Obama confirms the idea that being unapologetically out and proud has been our movement’s greatest catalyst.

Kentucky’s marriage ban falls, and these Baptists are stoked.

Mages are totally gay, or at least this Dragon Age playable character is.

Even if we don’t get ENDA, the legal groundwork is already laid for protection under Title VII (so accept no hobbled “religious exemption” substitutes).

Burger King targets the gay dollar as the first move in a diversity campaign.

The Bad

Brazil has displaced thousands of people from their homes for the World Cup, but these feisty San Francisco queers have taken on Google to make their message of solidarity clear.

The Fugly

Petticoat Fair in Austin asked trans woman and Austinite Kylie Jack for ID to prove she's female before a bra fitting, has since apologized and promised to do better.

Someone is planning to round up all the Real True Christians and put them in death camps, and it’s us!

No, the World Congress of Families is not a position in the Kama Sutra, it’s an anti-gay hate group, and they’re hosting their first, umm, gathering in SLC.
