Laverne Cox makes Time for her fans, California gets back at its "Twinkie" history, and the Log Cabin Republicans can't win for losing, as your AggreGAYtor heeds Madonna's warning.

The Good

Laverne Cox (and the trans rights movement with her) makes Time Magazine’s cover.

California may soon ban the “gay panic” defense.

The Republican Party may soon have to boot its rabid anti-gay segment.

The Bad

All those hate crimes in NYC added up to a 27% increase in anti-LGBTQ violence for 2013.

Log Cabin Republicans have been excluded from the state GOP convention (again).

The Fugly

A Kansas rep will be the first to join NOM’s march against marriage equality.
