Churches go pro homo, Beaumont shows its pride, and New York State kills the bills, as your AggreGAYtor throws out hir cases of quack supplements.

The Good

The U.S. Conference of Mayors renewed its commitment to marriage equality with a resolution sponsored in part by the mayors of Houston and San Antonio.

Austin Central Presbyterian takes a stand in support of the denomination’s new pro-marriage stance.

Beaumont has pulled off its first Pride.

The National Cathedral hosted a lovely LGBTQ-affirming Episcopal mass on Sunday.

Here’s a photo tour of San Francisco’s queer history.

The Bad

The New York State Senate has blocked two bills, one to prevent discrimination, the other to stop ‘ex-gay’ quack therapy (which, even if it worked, wouldn’t even make sense).

It’s tough times right now for the LGBTQ community in Ukraine, but at least our congressional staffers are listening.

Fort Myers, Florida is struggling to cope with the senseless and brutal murder of a much-loved trans woman.

The Fugly

Uganda is feeling the sting of U.S. sanctions, but is still cracking down on LGBTQ Ugandans.

It Came from the Tubes
