The Best And Worst LGBT Stories Of The Week, February 12 - 19

Each weekend we offer you a collection of either the best LGBT stories of the week in our "Something To Celebrate" slideshow, or the worst in our "Know Thine Enemy" slideshow.

This week was a big week for LGBT news and because we couldn't decide whether we should feature the bad or the good, we decided to go with both.

Check out 17 of the best and worst LGBT news stories of the week and then sound off on what you were most moved by, angered by, or happy about in the comments section below.

Cheers And Jeers: February 12 - 19
