The AggreGAYtor: January 6

, January 6, 2014, 2:45pm, Qmmunity

Aaron Schock gets a sour surprise, Annise Parker gets a happy city staff, and Pope Frances takes another step forward, as your AggreGAYtor dosey does out the door.

The Good

A federal judge has restarted Houston’s  same-sex partner benefits policy.

With gay rights moving steadily forwared, trans rights are (hopefully) trailing right behind.

Pope Francis recognizes LGBTQ families, sort of.

India gets a Hindi edition of a prominent queer magazine.

The Bad

Teenagers make unreliable research subjects, especially when it comes to orientation.

The Fugly

Aaron Schock has been outed (again?), and even if he’s straight, he’s stuck.*

Melissa Harris-Perry and her guests made fun of the Romneys’ (adorable) black baby in a sea of whiteness, and despite all apologies, the right still smells blood in the water. And so does Alec Baldwin, white male boomer.

Ani DiFranco is not a stone cold racist.
