With so much hate continually aimed at the LGBT community, we like to take a moment every once in a while to highlight some of the good news we feature.

Every other weekend we offer our Something To Celebrate feature, a round up of the best LGBT moments from the week before.

It's a great way to catch up on the stories that you might have missed during the last seven days -- not to mention a much needed reminder that though we still face many enemies and we must continue to fight, we are making gains and beautiful things happen in and to the LGBT community every day.

Have a look at 17 of the best LGBT stories from the past week and then let us know what your favorite moment was this week.
