One SCOTUS justice keeps us guessing, Utah leads the way to reconciliation, and quacks do damage, as your AggreGAYtor reconsiders "Pet Sounds."

The Good

The largest protestant church in France has just gone gay all of a sudden.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a sly one.

Utah shows us all how to balance civil rights and religious liberty.

Guys, trans folks are having a moment, and the Times is on it.

The Forever 21 lawsuit could have major implications for transgender Americans.

The Bad

Quack “ex-gay” conversion therapies are targeting the disabled for abuse.

The Iron Curtain is still in place, at least as far as queer issues are concerned.

The Fugly

Jeb Bush might not be the “nice” candidate he appeared to be.

Ted Cruz is really worried about being forced to get gay-married.

Even though more Texans support marriage than not, Republicans are doubling down.

Anti-LGBTQ group Texas Values thinks Texas businesses are wrong.

Evangelist Franklin Graham is praying for the RBG to be more like him.
