That triangle was too... oppressive.
That triangle was too... oppressive.

Texas gets gay married in style, LBJ's civil rights legacy includes LGBTQ, and Chick-Fil-A sees the way the trend lines are going, as your AggreGAYtor conflates National Socialism with Diamat.

The Good

Rick Perry can’t stop this wedding; we hope he’s on the invite list.

Ohio’s marriage ban is likely to go down, and soon.

There’s a Civil Rights Summit going on right now at the LBJ Library, and it’s got conservatives and liberals supporting marriage equality.

Laverne Cox is being recognized as official badass by GLAAD.

Queen Bey loves us. Queen Bey says so.

The Bad

Chick-Fil-A wants to start feeding gays deep-fried garbage again.

SMU is struggling with homosexuality. Or at least its representation.

Ugandan gays are in big trouble right now, thanks to American fundamentalist interference.

The Fugly

Hitler was trying to create a race of super gay male soldiers.”

Speaking of Nazism, we’re Stalinists too. At the same time.

The National Organization for Marriage is none of the above.

The FRC hate group is not above scraping the bottom of the barrel.
