Elisa Chan moves on to bigger and worse things, Oklahomans go off to the reservation, and the Jane Doe Colorado story gets fuglier, as your AggreGAYtor keeps looking for the best costume for today.

The Good

Homophobic Elisa Chan has quit her position on the San Antonio City Council – oh, wait.

The Kickstarter for local filmmaker PJ Raval is catching up, with just over a day to go. Go check it out and share some love.

Moneyed members of the GOP can see where the trend lines are going and are quietly urging the party to soften up.

Oklahomo-ans may have found a way to get married despite the state’s ban.

Will Illinois become the 15th state to recognize marriage equality? Will Texas become the 30th? The 50th? The 51st?

The Bad

Being transgender in Iowa is tough.

The Fugly

The people attacking this trans teen are exemplars of monstrosity. Leave Jane Doe alone!
