Politics from Good As You
Declaring that she has "little or no likelihood" to win on appeal, a Sixth Circuit panel has denied a now infamously anti-equality clerk's attempts to sidestep her job whenever a qualified same-sex couple requests she fulfill her paid duties: A...
When a candidate releases a book in the middle of a primary, every chapter, word, and comma is carefully orchestrated. So you can be sure that Jeb Bush included this in his new ebook, Reply All, because he thinks it's...
The list itself holds few surprises, showing the same names we've long known (Templeton, Fieler, Caster, Knights of Columbus) having financed NOM's operations in Maine. But having covered this saga for all the years that NOM tried to obstruct justice,...
The US Supreme Court did not "write a law," obviously. Instead, the majority found that same-sex couples have the right, under our constitution, to enter into civil marriages. In fact, the laws that were passed to try to muddy and...
A U.S. District judge ruled today that Kim Davis, the clerk from Rowan County, Kentucky, who went viral when she was filmed denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples, must issue such licenses or ultimately face some pretty steep consequences: Judge...
News and Gossip from Queerty
It’s been one hell of a summer for reality TV star/antigay activist Josh Duggar, and not in a good way. Trouble for the married father-of-two began back in May when he confessed to molesting two of his sisters in their sleep, resulting in a media superstorm that ultimately cost his family their TLC reality show. Last […]
The mayor of Venice wants to ban gay pride parades in the city, reports The BBC . “There will be no gay pride in my Venice,” Luigi Brugnaro told La Repubblica newspaper, before describing the event as both farcical and kitsch. In the article, he claims that he’s not homophobic and, in fact, has gay friends. Flavio […]
Rafael Nadal is having a bit of a moment (as if 14 Grand Slam titles and an Olympic gold medal haven’t been enough) as the new face (and body, mostly body) of Tommy Hilfiger underwear. In addition to that tease of a TV spot, Nadal, Hilfiger, some supermodels and Jane Lynch (obviously) got together in […]
The nation is still reeling over the shooting murders of 24-year-old WBDJ-TV reporter Alison Parker and 27-year-old cameraman Adam Ward. Shortly after the shooting, the suspected gunman, former WBDJ employee Bryce Williams, who’s real name was Vester Flanagan, took his own life, but not before emailing his manifesto to ABC News, in which he confessed his motivation for the killing was mistreatment […]
Candidates Share Longing Gaze Before Signing Batsh*t Crazy Pledge To Ban Gay Propaganda, End Gay MarriageThe only thing scarier than the National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM) presidential pledge is the fact that four actual human presidential candidates have signed the damn thing. And we bet you can guess who. Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and Bobby Jindal have joined Rick “Messy Bottom” Santorum in signing the appalling document, which promises to […]
I’ve been talking to her. It’s always possible. I’m trying to deal with her play schedule. Jessica is always about the character. She’ll be back—she’s not gone forever. But that’s the fun and fresh thing about the show: sometimes somebody has to go away before you realize how much you miss them. She wants to come back we […]
The man who spent more than $100k on plastic surgeries to resemble pop singer Justin Bieber has died, TMZ reports. 35-year-old Toby Sheldon achieved a degree of notoriety after appearing on the reality shows Botched and My Strange Addiction, where he talked about his obsession with looking like his favorite pop singer, who he described as “perfect” and “extraordinary beautiful.” In 2o14, he released […]
Ricky Martin is as exhausted by Donald Trump as the rest of us, only he’s not going to just sit back and wait for him to self-destruct.

What happens when you combine influences from Tom of Finland, Disney and drag queens, and channel them into art? You get the work of Alfredo Roagui. The graphic designer and illustrator, who hails from Mexico, has been using these elements to create colorful and provocative drawings of beefy men, as well as the queens from […]
A federal appeals court has upheld a ruling ordering a Kentucky county clerk to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis objects to same-sex marriage for religious reasons. She stopped issuing marriage licenses the day after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned state bans on same-sex marriage.

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.
