No wonder they hate him so much

Eric Holder gives us his last hoorah, the EEOC gives us T-word justice, and Christians dump the NALT excuse, as your AggreGAYtor test drives Ello.

The Good

Eric Holder will ask for marriage rights among his last acts as U.S. Attorney General.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission acknowledges that gender identity discrimination is sex discrimination for the first time.

California now recognizes trans folks’ gender identity on death certificates.

This pastor “gets” what it means to have gay children.

Facebook’s “real name” policy has queer folk fleeing in droves to seek fairer options.

Laverne Cox makes the case for LGBTQ equality in Utah.

Pro-equality Christians are tiring of saying, “We’re not all like that.”

The Bad

Half of gay men living with HIV aren’t getting treatment.

The Fugly

Somehow trans recognition means creepy men in every shower.

Disney is nice to gay customers, but not so much in its use of queer stereotypes.
