Politics from Good As You
With all that's going on around the world today, there are plenty of headlines to which one might ascribe the phrase "mission of destruction." Here's the American Family Association's choice: Two same-gender couples have filed suit to overturn Mississippi's constitutional...
MassResistance's hilarious fourteen-point plan for reinstating marriage discrimination: Get really, really nastyThe anti-LGBT activists at MassResistance see the writing on the wall, and they know that it reads "Psst, your game's almost up!" So here is their hysterically obtuse plan for how they will convince America to do an about-face and...
Over the years, the Concerned Women For America has employed Sandy Rios, Peter LaBarbera, Matt Barber, Robert Knight, and a whole host of conservatives whose rhetoric routinely breaks the bounds of political decorum. And right now, on CWA's main website,...
"Rivka Edelman," who first wrote an article that had to be corrected and for which I had to be granted a personal apology due to the lies within and who has since spent about two weeks now posting lies about...
Every time another one of these deliberately propagandized situations involving a baker or florist or other public accommodation operator who wishes to discriminate against same-sex couples comes into light, people on both sides (but mainly on the anti-gay side) start...
News and Gossip from Queerty
The gay Super Bowl, which some refer to as the Academy Awards are still months away, but if you can’t wait that long to throw your support behind the year’s best film, here’s good news. Queerty readers can tell us which was the film most likely to become a future queer classic. There were so many deserving projects to […]
Celebrities are just like normal people. Except not at all. Instead of having to find time for the gym amid a hectic work schedule, looking amazing often is their work. Nick Jonas has gone from boyband teeny-bopper to full-fledged hunk, but in case you’re wondering why you haven’t achieved the same results even though you’ve been fully committed […]
A class action lawsuit filed by 15 former and current gay, bi and trans (GBT) inmates of San Bernardino County Jail in California alleges gross mistreat and discrimination based on the prisoners’ sexual orientations. Among the accusations are claims of being held in solitary for longer than is allowed — up to 22 hours a day […]
They certainly aren’t the sexiest things to discuss as you’re about to get up close and personal with someone new, but condoms should find a way into your precoital banter somehow or another. For many guys, simply asking, “Hey do you have a condom?” does the trick — it’s direct, lets him know you’re on board […]
Tongues have been wagging ever since Renée Zellweger debuted her new, nearly unrecognizable face at Elle‘s Women in Hollywood Awards event earlier this week. The Oscar winner’s sometimes puckered face was looking surprisingly less, well, puckered at she posed for photos on the red carpet Monday night. Now, Rosie O’Donnell is coming to the actress’ defense. During yesterday’s episode of The View, O’Donnell said: “I think Renée Zellweger is a […]
“I’ve never been in a situation where I thought I could be raped,” H. Alan Scott (pictured) writes in a blog post published on the Huffington Post. “I’m a big guy, strong, how could I be raped? Until the moment when my legs were in the air, totally vulnerable, looking into the eyes of a man insistent […]
Batter up, boys, it’s World Series season here in America, in case you didn’t know. This is the 110th World Series, with the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals fighting for the title. Baseball non-fans may be tempted to throw their casual support behind San Francisco simply because of the city’s reputation as […]
Marcus Nicholson-North insists that he was only trying to help. The 27-year-old man first made contact with the 15-year-old boy via Facebook. The teen, whose name has not been released, said he was confused about his sexual orientation. He thought he might be bisexual, but he wasn’t sure, and he wanted someone to talk to about it, the Huddersfield Daily Examiner reports. […]
If you are one of the thousands dozen or so of Pat Robertson’s followers who is now terrified of traveling “overseas” for fear of contracting HIV/AIDS while using a towel, let Anderson Cooper offer you some peace of mind. The host of CNN’s AC 360 used all that convenient scientific knowledge that often eludes Robertson and his ilk to […]
We didn’t see this one coming. Now that his legal worries seem to be behind him for the moment, X-Men director and lover of twinks Bryan Singer is about to become a daddy. No, that’s not what his lovers will seductively call him (call it a gut feeling but we don’t think he’s into that). He’s […]

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.
