Houston gets civilized, Barney's gets transmatized, and yoga class gets real awkward, as your AggreGAYtor overcomes so much diversity.

The Good

Houston jails are starting to treat their trans inmates appropriately.

The 92 year old trans veteran fighting for her rights now has an awesome video from Lambda Legal. (NSFW if you’re not allowed to cry)

British fancy pants retailer Barney’s latest campaign features 17 trans models.

Called fantasy football for gays, “American Horror Story: Coven” wrapped up with its queerest episode yet. And Jessica Lange will be back in the fall, so there’s that. Also Liza's hip.

The Bad

The Fugly
