Gretchen Carlson climbs the Festivus pole, Dolly Parton comes a-courtin', and Christopher Walken dances the night away, as your AggreGAYtor prepares for Fargo, doncha know.

The Good

Dolly Parton rolls up to the gay bar, writes an album.

Maybe if people realize what a small minority LGBTQ people are, they’ll slow down their attacks.

We’ve come a long way, baby, and we must never forget.

The Bad

Yes, “ex-gay” conversion therapy traumatizes kids.

Yes, religious exemptions are already used to allow anti-LGBTQ discrimination.

Yes, being queer comes with a special set of health risks.

The Fugly

Texas may soon be forced to allow Confederate Flag license plates.

The Christian persecution complex is very strong with Gretchen Carlson.
