What could possibly go wrong?
What could possibly go wrong?

Marriage gets props, sex work gets props, and Rick Perry might get real mad behind that, as your AggreGAYtor considers the post-prison possibilities of the path of excess.

The Good

Marriage makes people healthier and less stressed (or healthier, less stressed people get married, but of course second-class citizenship is unhealthy and stressful).

Sex work is not anti-feminist and can be very queer indeed.

Ethiopia seems to be off the anti-gay African bandwagon, but Egypt might not be so lucky.

Rick Perry would really hate this gay Boy Scout’s story.

Nevada stops using ladies and gays as wedges.

Equality Texas is hosting its 25th Spirit of Texas Brunch. Who’s buying?

The Bad

Nobody’s bought us a single pair of gay jeans.

It’s getting better for LGBTQ ICE detainees, but not enough.

The T word needs to go. For realness.

The Fugly

The SPLC is all about suing churches. There’s no evidence, but the intent is somehow clear.

The, Umm, Rehabilitated?

Michael Alig will be released next month.
