Who decides marriage rightes? These guys, in their tights.
Who decides marriage rightes? These guys, in their tights.

Marriage prepares for a sweep, Texans head west for nuptials, and marriage rights cause all this ISIL/ISIS nonsense, as your AggreGAYtor jiggles the handle.

The Good

Marriage goes national September 29.

British diplomats are sparking an LGBTQ rights debate.

Corporations are ahead of national LGBTQ equality efforts (probably because national everything efforts are stalling in Congress).

Gay in Texas? Consider a Santa Fe wedding.

The Bad

10 states including Texas may disenfranchise trans voters.

“Discrimination… is deeply entrenched in Texas law.”
Trans women are living with higher rates of HIV, as well as (because of and in tandem with) stigma, abuse, and ignorance.

The Fugly

Anti-gay Christian groups are asking for public colleges to subsidize their discrimination.

Same-sex marriage apparently leads to beheadings of infadels.
