Know Thine Enemy: The Worst Anti-LGBT Moments Of The Week, March 18 - March 25

Every weekend we bring you a round up of either the best LGBT moments from the week before -- our Something To Celebrate series -- or, as you'll see below, the worst anti-LGBT stories from the last seven days in our Know Thine Enemy feature.

Check out the stories we covered this week below -- all in one convenient slideshow -- and let us know who you think the biggest enemy of the LGBT community was in the comments section.
