Queerty editor teams up with Gay Place for new weekly feature

Everyone's voice sounds deeper than Doogie's

Even if you didn't bone up on LGBT news this last week, here's your chance to catch up on some of the biggest stories around. There's fag hags, Siri-ous denial, "friendly" skies, and a fabulous bitchslap. Oh yes, you don't wanna miss these hot highlights:

Perhaps it's time to stop using the term "fag hag" when referring to gay men's lady-friends.

While temporarily substituting for Regis Philbin on Live! With Kelly, Doogie Howser M.D. said that "trannies" speak in deep voices. He has since apologized, but can we quit with the tranny jokes already?

Russia mulls over a federal law banning LGBT-everything.

iPhone's Siri doesn't want women to have good oral sex, contraceptives, or abortions.

A stupid United Airlines employee calls a gay couple "faggots" after they make a menial request. Friendly skies, indeed!

On World AIDS Day, Obama says that we need to start giving love and support to blacks and Latinos who continue to disproportionately get hit by the disease. Ironically, on the same day, a 13-year-old black student got rejected from a PA private school just because he's HIV-positive.

Gay congressman Barney Frank announced his retirement, but not before delivering a parting bitchslap to serial adulterer and hypocritical anti-gay marriage GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

And on the lighter side, you had better learn your place before daring to enter the bathroom of the most popular girls in school!!!

Until next week, darlings.
