Politics from Good As You
As someone who has written about Family Research Council Action Executive Director Josh Duggar and the way he has used his TV fame to subjugate the rights of LGBT people (among others), I feel like I have to say something...
At this point, the so-called Family Leadership Summit has one national sponsor: the National Organization For Marriage. And of course since the Gran Old Party can't break its (self-defeating) obsession with stopping gay people from getting married, no fewer than...
Video: Ted Cruz tells viciously anti-gay Family Research Council he's got their back on anti-gay discriminationYesterday I told you about some of the extreme speakers who Sen. Ted Cruz is joining/courting at this week's "Watchmen on the Wall conference. Here now, a pertinent part of his speech to the Family Research Council crowd: [RWW] I...
The news of the day: The president of the Boy Scouts of America on Thursday called for an end to the group’s blanket ban on gay adult leaders, warning Scout executives that “we must deal with the world as it...
From the Family Research Council's latest round of prayer targets: [FRC] Whoever at FRC wrote "spewing upon our nation" in a post about Savage was clearly trolling his or her employer.
News and Gossip from Queerty
“I wish we didn’t have to have a gay rodeo,” Wade Earp tells Reuters. “I wish we could just rodeo.” The aptly named Earp competed at the International Gay Rodeo held in Arkansas, a Bible Belt state not known for it’s supportiveness. Arkansas is one of the 13 states where same-sex marriage is banned and where, earlier this year, lawmakers approved […]
Today, former US defense secretary and current president of the Boy Scouts of America took a decidedly different approach to the Scouts’ ban on gay leaders. He warned Scout executives that “we must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be,” and that “any other alternative will be […]
Barbra Streisand has been regarded as the world’s greatest star for probably longer than you’ve been alive, but the EGOT-winner and committed equality activist will finally write a memoir to set the record straight on all the myths and inaccuracies you’ve read about her during her six decades in the business of show. The book is scheduled […]
As the great Samantha Jones once said on Sex and the City, “Ladies, seamen, 12 o’clock!” She was referring, of course, to NYC Fleet Week, when active military ships dock on Manhattan’s west side and some of our nation’s finest roam the streets as tourists. And judging by these Instagram photos, it also marks an annual tradition […]
It would seem that Ian Reisner has finally been thinking seriously about PR since news broke that he and business partner Mati Weiderpass hosted a “fireside chat” with vehemently antigay Senator and Republican Presidential candidate clown car occupant Ted Cruz at their Central Park penthouse last month. Reisner, who has previously called the meeting a “terrible mistake” while […]
Gov. Bobby Jindal has once again done the impossible. The deeply unpopular Louisiana governor has somehow managed to become even more unpopular by announcing he will be issuing an Executive Order legalizing discrimination against LGBT people. It may be partly coincidence (he’s pretty much bad at every aspect of his job), but his negative job rating among voters […]
Last December, the prestigious journal Science published a study that was really good news for marriage equality supporters. The study found that when canvassers spent 20 minutes talking to people, those people were more likely to be supporters of marriage equality. Moreover, that change of opinion was likely to be long-lasting. “A lot of time […]
A mother and her gay son from Midland, Michigan have come forward with new information about how Reverend Matthew Makela behaved in his position as associate pastor at St. John’s Lutheran Church before Queerty broke the news about his Grindr profile earlier this week. Jennifer Kish says Makela nearly drove her then 17-year-old son Tyler to suicide. […]
Need a lift? The heterophobic cabbie is happy to drive you to your destination. Assuming you’re not “a breeder,” that is. (His bumper sticker’s words, not ours!) In a new video released by the taxi app Hailo, hidden cameras capture passengers’ reactions as they listen to their Irish cab driver make derogatory comments about heterosexuals. “We don’t usually take heteros […]
Out rapper Cazwell has been synonymous with New York’s downtown music scene for more than a decade and he still knows how to get the party started right. With the long Memorial Day weekend approaching, the entertainer decided to add some sizzle to our holiday festivities with his “Summer of Ratchet DJ Mixtape” — for free! The tape features 27 […]

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.
