Here are the biggest news stories SDGLN brought you this week:

Now that it's been almost two weeks since the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States, we're continuing to see some of the aftermath as well as the President-Elect's stated plans: Trump says gay marriage is the law, 'It's done, I'm fine with that.' Also, the Log Cabin Republicans say they are working with Trump's transition team; check out the San Diego zip codes that made the largest contributions to the Trump campaign; and a man says Trump okays killing of gays after he beats up an elderly Florida man.

Other national news: Twitter bans alt-right members for inciting hate and harrassment; Texas bill seeks to allow LGBT discrimination throughout entire state; and a gay Tennessee man was found murdered in trucking lot.

Two stories more close to home: Uptown Community Plan update approved; and an Orange County man was burned, 'tortured' by his boyfriend.
