The AggreGAYtor: April 7

What happened today in gay? Here’s your QILTBAG recap of queer news.

Someone's gotta say it.
Someone's gotta say it.

Britain feeds the quacks, Catholics respond to Catholic discrimination, and slut-shaming ravages the PrEP crowd, as your AggreGAYtor dances with dragons.

The Good

A new coalition of businesses has united to fight anti-gay pro-discrimination laws.

Melissa Harris-Perry has had it with Mississippi.

Harlem has better things on offer than hateful homophobic pastors.

Laws against discrimination actually reduce discrimination.

The Bad

Catholic institutions are still purging gays from their ranks, but some Catholics are formulating a response.

Britain’s NHS is still paying for quack “conversion” therapy.

The Fugly

Our community can’t stop slut-shaming over PrEP.

Gay people are shrill, and a diverse society should tolerate more bigotry.

It Came from the Tubes
