ENDA rolls forward, gay and trans teens stay in the news, and the Astrodome becomes a distant, astroturfed memory, as your AggreGAYtor gets all mavericky in the place.

The Good

Trans kids are speaking out on their bathroom battles.

Republicans are keeping relatively quiet in the ENDA debate. At least in the Senate.

Two awesome ladies, one LGBTQ-affirming tweet. Go team Pelosi! Go team Griffin!

Anise Parker keeps her homo-friendly mayoral seat, but the Astrodome joins the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and Mausoleum at Halicarnassus as a lost wonder of the world.

Staying at home alone can be wonderful, and stylish to boot!

The Bad

Bathroom panics victimize trans people, but also always portray cis women as weak and victimized.

The Fugly

A Christian, gay Texas student has been suspended from school for tearing pages from a Bible.

Laughable bumblefuck and alleged crack smoker Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto, keeps dissing the queers.

It Came from the Tubes
