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.
