Arizona sinks beneath the Mason-Dixon Line, Virginia flubs a good-faith effort, and Regnerus goes gun-for-hire, as your AggreGAYtor comes atcha like a dark horse.

The Good

An Arizona pizzeria has expressed a sincerely held religious belief against being an Arizona legislator.

The LDS Church has a bad track record (see this), but they’re working on it.

This interview with Greg Louganis demonstrates how murky the motivations are for Russia’s new anti-gay stance.

The North Texas teen who entrapped and brutally beat a gay man has been charged with a hate crime.

The Bad

Uganda’s formerly “kill the gays” bill has been signed into law; Desmond Tutu channels Martin Niemöller.

Virginia’s new trans student “protections” are effectively a trans ban.

Arizona is now operating under its own version of Sharia law.

The Fugly

UT’s famous homophobe Mark Regnerus is in Michigan painting LGBTQ parents as inferior.

The effort to protect discrimination amounts to anti-gay Jim Crow.

It Came from the Tubes
