#TBT: Even after legal equality, Americans—and particularly religious Americans—struggle to accept certain marriagesThe most devout churchgoers are the most adamantly opposed.

Everyone should have the right to love and marry whomever he wants. And the more there are straight artists who defend these ideas, the more they will be admitted.” — Nick Jonas continuing his efforts to be the hottest straight ally for LGBT folks in a new interview with Tetu magazine
It’s been less than 24 hours since Indiana Governor Mike Pence (pictured) signed into law a draconian measure that grants business owners the right to discriminate against gays and lesbians in the name of “religious freedom,” and the fallout is already proving to be huge. In addition to billionaire CEO Marc Benioff pledging to “dramatically reduce” his company’s investment in […]

We’ve got to say, we’re loving the backlash over Indiana’s recently signed antigay “religious freedom law,” and now Audra McDonald and Miley Cyrus have thrown in their two cents (four cents, collectively). Here’s hoping public outcry inspires lawmakers around the country to think twice before enacting similar legislature. Miley took a direct approach, calling Indiana […]

Anyone who has ever used a dating app, which we assume to be almost everyone reading this, knows that guys can be a bit…let’s call it enthusiastic. In some ways, it’s a leg-up gay men have over straight guys — we may not all be all be looking to hook up all the time, but when the mood […]
Men’s apparel designed with floral prints became a prominent style about a year ago. Embraced by the younger generation of guys, modern floral prints took on the attitude of modern hipsters. But not entirely, because floral prints also found there way into formalwear — most notably on ties and button-down shirts, some of which used the floral for bold […]

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.
