We got a twofer on the fugly tip today.
We got a twofer on the fugly tip today.

Virginia prepares to lose her flower, Chelsea Manning gets poor treatment, and Texas Eagle Forum credits homophobia for the "Texas miracle," as your AggreGAYtor reads her for filth.

The Good

Queer Virginians may be cutting wedding cakes as soon as next week.

Recently deceased Robin Williams was a staunch ally of LGBTQ folk before it was cool.

The Bad

Gay Palestinians are caught in a legal no-man’s-land.

Chelsea Manning is still being denied medical treatment toward her transition.

The Fugly

Cathie Adams of the Texas Eagle Forum is lying for Jesus (as usual), and apparently her colleague Jonathan Saenz’ ex-wife left him last year for another woman (bitter?).

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins thinks giving money to quack ex-gay clinics will drive away gay business. We hope he’s right, and then some.
