Marriage gets heard, bathrooms get used, and Grindr gets publicity, as your AggreGAYtor slips into a $5 bill.

The Good

Apparently it’s not so bad being a trans staffer at the Texas Legislature.

Trans advocates met at the Capitol to press against discriminatory bathroom bills.

Even Republicans might be relieved to have SCOTUS rule for marriage.

The Bold and the Beautiful will now feature a trans actor.

The Bad

We still have no idea how the Supremes will rule on marriage equality.

Another trans woman became a statistic. Let’s steer clear of 4Chan, shall we?

Guys, sex ed in America is inadequate, and the Times is on it.

The Fugly

Justice Antonin Scalia had no compunction with tipping his hand.

Another anti-gay politician has been outed, this time via Grindr.

Texas joined the fray at SCOTUS, mostly on the fugly side.

It Came from the Tubes
