This week in Best Tweet Ever, a super hero comes out of the closet, Donald Trump, and Kristen Stewart.
To celebrate President Obama's support of marriage equality, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel posed the question "have you ever had a gay experience" to pedestrians outside his Hollywood studio.
Gaysayer reads LGBT-related tweets, picks the most hilarious, and then sends them your way.
Comedian Jon Stewart channeled the frustration LGBT people felt Wednesday when learning that President Obama had come out for marriage equality but that North Carolina had banned it. "Congratulations, North Carolina, because for a moment I was feeling a brief glimpse of what I guess doctors would call happiness," he said on The Daily Show. He then ripped up the logic that North Carolinians invoked when voting against same-sex marriage.
