Quick lesson before today’s news: “Queer” can be a word that includes all of us, even our straight (okay, maybe at least slightly kinky) allies. “Tranny,” unfortunately, can not. We’ve got to drop that one because it’s alienating our actual trans* friends.

The Good

Texas’ constitutional marriage ban is facing another court challenge.

GLAAD gets a new, hopefully snit-free president and CEO.

California’s anti-trans backlash referendum effort may not make it to the ballot.

Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox is awesome and inspiring, but delivers no spoilers.

The Bad

For LGBTQ detainees, ICE isn’t very nice at all.

A Russian nightclub has experienced a second terrorist attack, this time with a “gas the gays” message.

The Fugly

Michelle Bachmann opposes LGBTQ adoption, as usual.

It Came from the Tubes
