This is all we need to know.
This is all we need to know.

Obama gives Putin a sparkle-fingered salute, Joseph Gordon-Levitt considers long black hair and a long black somethingorother, and Louisianians may be more progressive than Texans, as your AggreGAYtor reminds everyone that oven-shoving metaphors are never appropriate.

The Good

President Obama has selected the Sochi Olympic delegation, and the message is clear.

An anti-gay ruling against the City of Houston’s benefits package may actually lead to bigger improvements.

The Sandman movie. It is happening. It has Levitt. And here are more LGBTQ-inclusive graphic novels.

The owner of the largest gay club in Moscow, which recently had its roof ripped off, wrote a scathing open letter to Putin.

Louisiana overwhelmingly opposes anti-LGBTQ discrimination.

The Bad

India isn’t the only place where British-imposed 19th century buggery laws are still doing real damage: take a look at Jamaica.

The Fugly

In Russia, they’re talking about shoving us into ovens now.

No, gay marriage is not the reason Utah got its cohabitation law overturned.

We probably shouldn’t be supporting the Duck Dynasty, but we probably already knew that. Also, nobody should be listening to Bryan Fischer.
