Colorado has its sweet 16, Ukraine gets shady, and Porno Pete summons disapproval where he can, as your AggreGAYtor samples the umami.

Even white evangelical Protestants, the least marriage-affirming Christian group, are starting to catch up.

Colorado becomes state number 16 to lose its anti-gay marriage ban.

The Pride flag is not just about advertising gay-itude; it’s about the struggle for inclusivity and representation.

Laverne Cox has a new gig, and it looks like a good one.

The Bad
