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

News? But where are my dragons?
News? But where are my dragons?

Oklahoma shows potential, Texas shows us the best and the worst, and Kathy Najimy shows us besties of the besties, as your AggreGAYtor mourns the death of boy Sinead.

The Good

Oklahoma could potentially elect a trans woman to its House of Representatives (before Texas).

A trans student activist, suspended for using the bathroom, speaks out.

The President says lots of pretty words, but action would be real nice. To be fair, though, it’s nothing new.

Kathy Najimy is amazing. And funny.

Beaumont’s got a new gay pride.

The Bad

The U.S. House of Representatives pissed in everyone’s collective Cheerios.

An East Texas trans teacher has been suspended, well, just because.

The Fugly

Ethiopia seems to be following Uganda, but mainly the setting of the story is fabulously typoed “Addis Abba.”

Gays need to calm the F down and talk honestly about PrEP.

It Came from the Tubes
