So what is new in the gay world?

The I heart Brooklyn girls queer femme calendar is out (you can be femme and from brooklyn)

The gay world cup (that is soccer for you sissy non athletic boys) took place. (when the gays play)

A new study says gays have less visibility on TV in the last year, which to me seems super obvious. If you take will and grace off the air, which had enough gay for a life time, there will be a void. (where are the gays?)

There is serious scientific evidence that the Iranian president was wrong when he claimed Iran had no homosexuals, when in reality there was an Iranian in the International Mr. Gay Competition. (E! news can be serious)

This isn’t exactly new but I suggest you check it out. QueerSighted. It is my favorite gay interest blog. It alternates between need to know gay news, political arguments, the latest celebrity trash, gay history, and funny articles/videos. This week, the things that struck my interest included:

-A new online community for nerdy/techy gays, called DoorQ.com, is launching on Halloween. The gay nerd is a truly underserved community. It is somewhat assumed, that gay men are going to be sex obsessed disco boys who care about fashion, sex, and more sex. But in reality I know lots of down to earth nerdy gay boys. (Article)

-There is an interesting debate going back and forth between two contributors over the Hillary Clinton Advocate article. (One of the articles)

-And an article, that I find to be one of the most intelligent and relevant ever to be posted on a gay blog. The article praises the way the African American community approaches civil rights, and in particular the organization of protest over the Jena 6 events. It calls for the gay community to stop wasting its networking abilities on the next circuit party and focus on equality. Jena 6 Example

    Oh, my! I have got to get the calendar!

    I think Nashvillefemme would have one!

    Perhaps I’ll have her organize one for Nashville with a southern-country-theme.
