News and Gossip from Queerty
Dirk Shafer, a model, actor and fitness trainer who became a heartthrob to most straight women and gay men when he was named Playgirl‘s “Man of the Year in 1992, has been found dead at age 52 in West Hollywood, according to numerous reports. Website WeHoVille earlier wrote that a 52-year-old man was found dead in […]
Nobody ever said South African musical duo Die Antwoord was supposed to be the model of political correctness, but this just seems like pushing it. Drake and Die Antwoord are both touring Australia as part of the traveling Future Music Festival, and apparently Die Antwoord member Yolandi Visser was not a fan of Drake’s set. So […]
Don Lemon invited a group of political commentators onto his show to weigh in on newly revived debate over whether or not being gay is a choice sparked by 2016 Republican presidential hopeless hopeful Ben Carson earlier this week. Just in case you need a refresher: Carson told CNN he had hard evidence to support […]
“More than anything else, we felt responsibility to those kids and to our younger selves who didn’t see themselves reflected anywhere… We’ve all been watching stories about heterosexuals forever… As a gay kid you are always having to translate. You are always having to pretend like you are one of the other characters. You’re not seeing […]
The good folks at Girl Pants Productions have done us all a favor by putting together a short educational video offering insight for those against things like marriage equality, non-discrimination laws, and anything having to do with the equal treatment of gay people as to how their homophobia sounds to the rest of us. Spoiler alert: it sounds absurd. […]
“They’ve been damaged, and they can hurt people, but on the flip side, they’re resilient. They see a glimpse of hope.” That’s how one person close to the group describes Check It, a gay and trans gang in Washington D.C. Comprised of around 200 members, the group banded together out of necessity, and makes their […]
2016 Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson made quite an ass of himself this week when he went on CNN and claimed he had hard evidence to support the claim that being gay is a choice. “A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight,” Carson said, “and when they come out they’re gay.” […]
“The wedding finger,” that is. In response to the Alabama Supreme Court placing a halt on same-sex marriage (and in the process proving once again that they don’t understand the jurisdiction of federal law), the couple posted this message to Facebook: Post by George Takei. Here’s some of the social media participation the gesture received: […]
What would we do without Davey Wavey? One of our favorite vloggers recently met up with a straight guy named Donald to talk about bottoming. More specifically, to get Donald’s informed opinion on what it feels like to be anally penetrated. Armed with paper towels, toilet paper and lube, Donald is given a butt plug and put […]
Earlier this week we shared a story about Psychology Today’s decision to keep running paid listings for ex-gay therapists, but it appears that all the bad press was enough to get them to change their tune. As of now, practitioners of ex-gay therapy will no longer be allowed to advertise their services in the publication. Charles […]

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.
