Politics from Good As You
New Jersey's leading 'family' group posts truly nasty video equating gays with adulterers, alcoholicsMany of you have seen the following video, produced by far-far-far-right anti-gay figure Janet Folger Porter: Well guess who is now promoting and defending this clip? That would be none other than the New Jersey Family Policy Council, the organization...
I actually kind of like chatting with Manhattan Declaration Executive Director, NOM march speaker, and Sam Brownback son-in-law Eric Teetsel, because I find him well mannered, respectful, and open to frank discussion. But he's also wrong:
This is just a silly thing to say: "It’s not accurate to say the times have relegated the defense of marriage to the geriatric ward. And there’s no such thing as being on the “right” or “wrong” side of history....
Who says the Catholic Church is no longer engaged in effective outreach? [US Conference of Catholic Bishops (with link to the Spanish bulletin)] Because why should English be the only language that is bastardized with code words that mask the...
The Family Research Council, an organization whose leaders have supported criminal sanctions for gay people, claimed "it's a fact" that homosexuality leads to "eternal damnation," and said gays are "pawns in the hands of their malevolent master" the Devil (to...
News and Gossip from Queerty
In case you were wondering, if you’re gay, you’re a really lousy employee. Or at least that what Mission America’s Linda Harvey believes. The high priestess of homophobia told her radio listeners that employers not only have the right to fire LGBT employees, but that they should fire them. It’s all about what Harvey deems “high [...]
Cumberbitches rejoice! J.J. Abrams stopped by Conan last night and came prepared with a deleted scene featuring Star Trek Into Darkness villain Benedict Cumberbatch taking a shower. Conan has a point that Cumberbatch doesn’t look too happy, but he also kind of looks more adorable than menacing. Add a little 70s porno music, however, and [...]
Memorial Day is almost here and the ferries to Fire Island are already jam packed. Regardless of if you’re checking into the Belvedere, Grove Hotel, botel, your summer share, or just coming out for the day there are plenty of parties and happenings in the works for this summer. Lina Bradford, the gypsy queen of [...]
“Once you get that first kiss in, you are comfortable,” Michael Douglas told New York Magazine on tongue-wrestling with Matt Damon. There’s always a sort of morbid fascination whenever openly straight actors — particularly openly straight male actors — play gay characters, as if kissing a man is the ultimate test of a thespian’s mettle. [...]
One of the things that I remember most about my maternal grandmother is that she loved to sew. And, she was damn good at it. Like, she could whip up a prom dress if you needed one at the last minute and she made more quilts than our family knew what to do with. You [...]
Star athlete and international icon David Beckham’s schedule has opened up considerably since his recent retirement from soccer. Last week, Beckham announced that after twenty years as the world’s most famous professional soccer player, he would quit while at the top of his game. Now what could he do with all that spare time? We’re [...]
We’re suckers for a good flash mob video, but flash mob videos that end with a gay marriage proposal are the absolute best. On May 11th, Drew visited the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park with his boyfriend Carl’s mother. He had no idea that the flash mob forming in front of him would eventually lead [...]
With all the new states that have passed marriage equality legislation since last summer, what on Earth are they going to do with their Pride celebrations? A happy Pride is an equal Pride, and Maryland is the first to announce a mass wedding to mark the occasion and celebrate their hard work this year. Baltimore [...]
Thanks, One Million Moms, for giving Ellen Degeneres so much attention. Along with her wildly hilarious daytime talk show, your contribution has helped her to move into a $26.5M mansion in Santa Barbara with her wife, Portia de Rossi. So cute! TMZ is reporting that Ellen and Portia snagged this 10,522 square foot home (their [...]
So a giant oil firm with the initials ExxonMobil gets two resumes for the same job. One is of a qualified candidate with a 3.98 GPA whose experience shows she volunteered at an LGBT organization. The other has lower grades but nothing to indicate that she’s not 100% heterosexual. Who gets called in for 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.
