The AggreGAYtor: August 8

What happened today in gay? Here’s your QILTBAG recap of queer news.

Wow. Just. Wow.
Wow. Just. Wow.

Queer lawmakers pipe up, Uganda keeps going, and quacks go quack, as your AggreGAYtor – did that guy just advocate genocide?!!

The Good

Texas’ LGBTQ lawmakers have responded to the latest GOP anti-gay slur.

The Sixth District Federal Court of Appeals is hearing arguments over several states’ marriage bans, and even a ruling upholding the bans could be good news in the long run.

A Utah marriage case could be the first to make it before the supremes.

The Bad

Is it legal to be gay now in Uganda? (Hint: filed under The Bad).

The Dallas Voice may need to be a bit more careful with its editorial gusto.

The Fugly

Disreputed “ex-gay” quack ring NARTH is rebranding itself with a lot of cleavage and eye makeup.

Is James Franco trolling us or are we trolling him? Either way, can we drop it already?

Apparently Ebola’s a pretty good way to exterminate gays.
