This is where it gets taken away.

America polices the world, John Legend stands up, and Texas politicians punch down, as your AggreGAYtor pulls in politics of convenience.

The Good

The State Department now has someone looking out for queers around the globe.

John Legend has our backs.

A gay-hating bakery may have to stop baking gay-hating cakes, now that the lesbians have won.

The Bad

Texas legislators are beating back against queer progress.

Yes, marriage is coming, but that doesn’t equal acceptance (or equality).

Plano will continue to think about their stance on LGBTQ civil rights.

The teen vlogger threatened with expulsion for coming out is a Houston student.

The Fugly

Meanieheads come down on our side when it’s convenient (and could hurt President Obama).

It Came from the Tubes
