HRC makes up for past offenses.

HRC makes good, Penny Campbell moves on, and Kristen Beck gets on the teevee, as your AggreGAYtor captures a focused, non-terminal repeating phantasm.

The Good

A team of medical students in Augusta, Georgia, have formed the city’s first LGBTQ-centered health clinic.

HRC formally apologizes to the trans community.

Kristen Beck, former Navy Seal, has gotten her own CNN documentary.

The LDS Church is pushing the Supremes to rule on same-sex marriage, which is probably actually a good thing at this point.

Globalized movie production limits the film industry’s inclusion of same-sex relationships, but American TV seems to have no compunction.

The Bad

Trans people abroad can face massive challenges, up to and including deportation to a hostile state.

Penny Campbell, Tennessee’s foremost LGBTQ activist, has passed.

At the same time LGBTQ rights are moving forward here, they’re moving backward elsewhere.

The Fugly

A conservative anti-marriage group thinks they can overrule a pro-marriage majority (and a court decision) with a third of the signatures.

Queer folks are murdering families, according to this megachurch minister.

It Came from the Tubes

Still in theaters. Just sayin'.
