The Best and Worst of 2011?

As  2011 comes to a close, you’ll be reading lots of year-end reviews on different topics: movies, sports, books, news, deaths, music, TV, and so on.  Some times you’ll see these articles as “best of 2011” or “worst of 2011.”

So, we ask our readers: what were the top events and news stories in LGBT issues and Catholicism for 2011?  What were the best and the worst?  We’ll take all your suggestions, and perhaps add some that may have been forgotten, and post them as the year comes to a close.

Can’t remember too well what happened in 2011?  Here’s an easy way to remind yourselves.  New Ways Ministry’s website archives past issues of our tabloid newsletter, Bondings (for which this blog is named), and in it we chronicle events, issues, and opinions from around the nation and the globe.  Click on any of the past four issues, and you can read news stories about what has happened this past year in the arena of LGBT issues and Catholicism. That might spark your memory a bit!  (The final issue of the year, vol. 34, n. 4,  will be posted shortly, adding a fifth source for you to scour.)

Please make comments by December 26, 2011, so that we will have time to glean the responses.
