A look back at today's top stories

WINGNUTTERY

Well if this isn't coach of the year material, I don't know what is. A high school football coach in Alabama is being investigated after he was recorded making homophobic remarks and calling Michelle Obama a "fat gorilla". Classy stuff. Next door in Tennessee, the creator of the "Don't Say Gay" Bill thinks that anyone who disagrees with him should be medicated

It turns out that the world's most famous Catfish, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, is a little more than just confused as he now tells Dr. Phil that he is a "recovering homosexual". Good luck with that. And in case you forgot, it seems like every anti-gay bigot is really secretly gay

GAY ISSUES

In response to Chris Culliver's anti-gay remarks, gay marriage advocate and Baltimore Raven Brendon Ayanbadejo continues to show his intellect and his devotion to the cause. Who else is gonna be rooting for Baltimore on Sunday night? Meanwhile gay-related controversy continues to swirl around the San Francisco 49ers as the two players who appeared in an "It Gets Better" video seem to be trying to distance themselves fromit because they didn't know it had to do with gay kids. 


KochAIDS

Rest in peace to former New York City Mayor Ed Koch who died today at 88. His lack of response to the AIDS crisis during his term in office continues to be a source of much vitriol. Also a new documentary explores the world of violence and bigotry that the LGBT community faces in Jamaica.

VIDEOS OF THE DAY

If something your boyfriend keeps doing makes you want to crawl out of your skin then maybe you can relate to Vincent and Daniel's trip to therapy. All that high-school level biology boiled down to one short video. I know I am very slow thinking on this Friday. And now that Jimmy Kimmel is back at the reigns of his own show, he is free to present this week's tribute to the FCC
