Politics from Good As You
I was just reading a local news report from Houston's KHOU about the non-troversy involving Mayor Annise Parker, subpoenas she never saw before their preparation, and the outrage machine that followed. The first line reads like this: [KHOU] The reporter...
Jim Swift, assistant editor of the conservative Weekly Standard, thinks Tim Cook, in coming out as a proud gay man, sounds just like another newsmaking company leader: A southern-born CEO invoking religion regarding his views on homosexuality, lobbying for what...
Michigan pastors make unfortunate lifestyle choice; say they'll go to jail rather than not discriminateA group of Michigan pastors, working under the moniker of "No Gay Civil Right," has declared that they will not comply with any LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination law that might pass in their state. Pastor Stay Swimp, a humorously over-the-top activist preacher,...
At this week's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission conference, Russell Moore, top dog of that Southern Baptist enterprise, came out against so-called "reparative therapy." Then he and his allies proceeded to spend a large percentage of that conference telling gay...
That Idaho wedding venue posts new 'rules and regulations'; will still perform non-Christian weddingsThe Hitching Post, that for-profit Idaho venue that has repurposed itself as a solely religious enterprise in order to exclude same-sex couples, has posted the new policies for who can and who cannot marry there. The gist: Even though they...
News and Gossip from Queerty
A word of caution to those of you who text X-rated pictures of yourselves to others: Be very careful who you send them to or your naughty bits may come back to haunt you. One Pasadena school teacher has learned this lesson the hard way. 38-year-old David Galvan allegedly hacked into his ex-boyfriend’s, high school teacher Richard Rosa, […]
If you still don’t know what you’re going to be for Halloween, congratulations, you’re the biggest procrastinator of all your friends. In case you need a little help, here are some minimal effort ideas to get the ball rolling. But really, nobody is going to remember your costume in a week anyways. The same can’t […]
After Advocate.com and freelance writer Parker Molloy quietly parted ways this month, it took less than three weeks for her to go on the attack. Molloy’s latest tirade was apparently triggered by a phone call in which a customer service rep mistakenly assumed Molloy was male. Molloy took to Twitter to vent, first trolling SNL comedian Michael […]
Will Walters has a bone to pick with the city of San Diego. In 2011, he was arrested during San Diego Pride for dressing up as a sexy gladiator. The officers who arrested him claimed he was “over-exposed.” But Walters and his attorney say that’s a bunch of baloney, that he wasn’t showing any more skin than the […]
Well, cry us a river, Jon Cryer. In a video interview with the Huffington Post the Two and a Half Men actor acknowledges that everyone identifies him as gay, but he adds that he’s not, and by the way why don’t more gay men hit on him? The co-star of your straight brother’s third-favorite sitcom added he has an “encyclopedic knowledge […]
Australian artist Adam Seymour has cruised a hell of a lot of Grindr profiles, but when he taps “load more guys,” it’s more for inspiration than recreation. He turns interesting profiles he comes across into watercolor paintings. It’s his way of exploring the private/public dynamic of broadcasting sexual desires across social media. He told Buzzfeed: “We […]
Is there anything more comforting than chatting with a trusted friend over a frosty mug of your favorite brew? Well, OK, maybe we can think of one or two things, but let’s not digress. We’re huge fans of HBO’s Looking, yet we’re aware the dramedy has evoked polarizing opinions from viewers. (We’ve read your comments, folks.) Whether you […]

At first we were having trouble telling if this was an actual for-real Starbucks-sanctioned ad, but all signs seem to indicate that yes, it’s legit! Here’s a super-cute video featuring Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio that is, amazingly, a real and totally fantastic commercial for Starbucks. Our natural skepticism got the better of us at first, because it looks a […]
I moved to New York in 1979 just before my18th birthday. Of my close friends at NYU, more than half of them had died from AIDS by 1990. I remember the fear of the early 1980s. I remember the feeling of having dinner with a friend and running into someone I hadn’t seen and the light would […]

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.
