Colorado joins the party, the Queen gets a show, and "ex-gay" quacks have a new front man, as your AggreGAYtor ponders the P in the V.

The Good

Colorado becomes the latest state to lose its marriage ban.

These two queens just made the Queen (and probably the president of Uganda) witness a gay kiss on live TV.

The Bad

Homophobia causes harm, even self-harm to teens like this (now out and recovered) Texas Lutheran student.

Criminalization of homosexuality leads to increased HIV rates, even in Pacific nations.

The Fugly

Marriage’s sole foundation is apparently penis-in-vagina sex.

Arizona’s lawyers try the procreation defense. Again.

Quack “ex-gay” therapy has a new spokesperson, and he’s gotten his first smackdown.

Some women are airing their misunderstanding of just what feminism is very, very loudly.
