Politics from Good As You
Responding to yesterday's ruling in favor of marriage equality in his state, Arkansas Family Council head Jerry Cox writes: “This is another example of judicial tyranny. Arkansans voted overwhelmingly to define marriage as the union of one man and one...
Even some participants at last week's Vatican gathering of anti-gay social conservatives are starting to admit that the happy, hunky dory, positive vibe that the attendees were so desperate to message out was, in fact, disingenuous. In fact, Catherine Ruth...
In a stayed ruling—the second one today from a southern state—U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Reeves has ruled Mississippi's discriminatory marriage ban to be just that. Read it and weep, NOM: Mississippi ruling The hold lasts for fourteen days. But...
In a stayed ruling, U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker today struck down one of our more conservative state's discriminatory marriage ban: Federal Judge Overturns Arkansas' Gay Marriage Ban [AP] It is a near-certainty that the state will appeal to the...
LGBT equality activists are now just like the SA members who brought Hitler and the Holocaust to rise (aka "Brownshirts"). Because this is what passes for acceptable conservative rhetoric in prominent conservative journals: Regardless of how they began, the colors...
News and Gossip from Queerty
We’re aware that Bette Midler still possesses a very sharp tongue (right, Ariana?), but who knew her own music could be so dangerous? Jonathan Bennett, that’s who. The actor who made Lindsay Lohan’s heart go pitter-patter as Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls a decade ago learned the hard way while rehearsing for his recent stint […]
The Human Rights Campaign just released its 2015 Corporate Equality Index, which rates hundreds of companies on their friendliness to LGBTs. That’s handy for a whole host of reasons, whether you’re job hunting or trying to figure out where to invest. But at this time of year, it’s especially convenient for holiday-shopping. We’ve combed through the report and […]
This year, we want to give many thanks to Colby Melvin for constantly giving us something to look forward to, especially his latest photo shoot with Rikke Photography. Wearing looks from Rufskin, Colby looks sensual and cute as ever, but there’s a hint of mischievousness in his photos too. Channeling Lana Del Rey, complete with floral headband, […]
Need a good book to cozy up with over the holiday weekend? In the mood for a juicy memoir or great biography? Well, search no further. Whether you’re seeking a dishy tell-all about the bedroom shenanigans of one of American’s most infamous gay writers, an inside peek at the struggles and accomplishments of one of major baseball’s first openly gay former […]
Hello, you turkeys! Thanksgiving is coming up, our annual celebration of gluttony and colonization and 2pm dinners. What are you planning to cook? Leave your favorite recipes in the comments, where absolutely everyone will read them. It’s also that time of the year when inevitably, one jerk won’t let anyone eat until everyone goes around the table and […]
Last night, as I opened a beer seconds after putting my boys down, I felt gratitude that they most likely won’t wake for 10 ½ hours. I am so lucky to have sleepers. As I sipped, I thought about gratitude. It was a Hallmark Channel moment. And I was reminded: the strongest thanks I can […]
The LGBT Center in New York City honored iconic activist Gloria Steinem and New York State Assembly member Deborah J. Glick and Prudential at their 17th Annual Women’s Event last week. The Center welcomed hundreds (including Orange is the New Black favorite Lea Delaria and the revolutionary Edie Windsor) to the new Cipriani in downtown Manhattan for […]
Earlier this week we learned about a new campaign called The Shower Selfie Challenge, encouraging people to upload pictures of themselves getting sudsy and tag the shots #weareALLclean. The idea is to challenge the notion that having HIV makes you “dirty” by contrast of the often used “clean” to describe a negative HIV status, and the hope is […]
Gay dating websites can be an awesome way to connect but can also be a real drag. Messages go unanswered, hours seem wasted scrolling through endless profiles and something that’s supposed to hook you up leaves you feeling as isolated as ever. But the problem can be easier to solve than you think. It might seem annoying to work on your profile, but imagine […]
The holiday season is upon us, and families everywhere will gather around the table tomorrow and give thanks for one another. But maybe there’s someone in your family who you’d really rather just not hear speak. In Pat Robertson’s clan, that’d have to be Pat Robertson. His show The 700 Club did a story about the […]

This blows. Where else can I go?
It certainly leaves a lot to be desired at the moment, but the lack of anywhere very good is why I'm building it. Here's some other places to try:
- One of the best online communities I've ever been a part of, but sadly very London-centric.
- There's a pretty big intersection between geeks and gamers; I've met some great people from this site.
- Gay Intellectuals @ Gay.Com
- Some folks at Gay.com got tired of the emphasis on searching by penis length and tried to inject some culture into what is frankly a cesspit of a site. This is their own independent web presence.
- A safe space for LGBT people, this seems to be more focussed on support and the newly coming-out.
I also recommend these fine, semi-related sites:
- GayGeek reviews gay adult sites, so you don't have to. We don't do porn, but luckily for you, these guys do.
- Good As You
- Skewering the intolerant right, the adorable Jeremy covers politics daily from a gay perspective.
- Bittorrents of gay movies. The old forum owed a lot of its popularity to people accidentally ending up here while looking for this place.
