The AggreGAYtor: November 1

What happened today in gay? Here’s your QILTBAG recap of queer news.

Hook 'em!
Hook 'em!

The UT Queer Chorus rocks our socks, conservatives fail to see the objective disadvantages of polygamy and incest, and Jared Leto goes full Machinist, as your AggreGAYtor skips Ender's Game.

The Good

The UT Queer Chorus has successfully raised the funds needed for a member’s top surgery, the waist-up portion of gender transition.

Rumors are circulating about Big Bird’s gender status, but it’s safe to say the bird’s a product of a happy gay relationship.

Jared Leto gets deep into character for a new role as a transgender AIDS patient.

The Bad

Transgender schoolchildren are protected in California, but not fitness enthusiasts.

LGBTQ and allies are skipping Ender’s Game, a good book by an author with some harmful beliefs.

We’re (hopefully) all using protection and getting tested regularly for HIV, but we also need to know our status regarding Hepatitis C.

The Fugly

The National Organization for Marriage (and pirate torturer Britney’s favorite author) is on the record comparing same-sex marriage to polygamy and incest, and Maggie Gallagher thinks the right to swing her religious liberty fist continues past our collective noses.

Queen of the hormone pumpers Suzanne Somers thinks Obamacare is a socialist ponzi scheme.

World Nut Daily is concerned for the future of our planet. Because gays.

Some right-wing media outlets are still beating a fake dead trans horse.
