RIP Queerty


Free of an Agenda. Except That Gay One. That is my motto. I am free of an agenda, except that gay one, no matter how many people take exception to the so called gay agenda. Sorry, straight people. This one is for us. We lost a blog that didn’t censor, that didn’t mind being un PC, that didn’t mind acknowledging the fact that no matter how gay friendly you are, you will never be completely and fully qualified to tell the truth of a people you do not belong to. Yes, they often offended some people. But they didn’t care. We listen to the straight agenda via mainstream media on a daily basis. You can listen to ours now. There is now, officially, no blog that is completely free of an agenda, except that gay one, because they all are now littered with the straight perspective. There is nothing wrong with that, but, at the end of the day, we went to Queerty to vent, to rant, to talk to people who faced a world that just didn’t get it  on a daily basis. We need a voice, and I hope to be that, one day, but right now I am not. Godspeed to opening up a new blog similar to Queerty. We definitely need it.

  1. Why did the blog shut down. And yes, I do hope you find a place similar to it. I’m sorry it’s gone.

  2. No idea! I think it was because it was constantly offending people. they’d touch topics nobody else would, the ‘uncomfortable truth’ type stuff, tell gay teens which colleges had anti gay rules, which businesses were anti gay….

    but that is just a hunch. I am thinking I’ll give my humour blog a snarkier feel in homage.

    I personally think the writers were perhaps bullied into folding for a number of reasons, not the least of which was the controversial nature of the place. But, at the end of the day, it let go of all the silly we- have- to make- sure- we- don’t- piss- anyone- off BS that a lot of gay blogs are doing these days and just let the people who didn’t get it have it. They censored nothing, and let whatever conversation was in any given thread go on. Couple that with the fact that lately, everyone they wrote about had some representative show up in the thread to defend, and well… the anti gay organizations have a lot more money than a bunch of angry bloggers and blog commenters, so they probably decided it wasn’t worth the heat, backlash, and destroyed literary careers. Sad, and worrying. The one place on the internet that told it like it was every time is gone.

    OT for this board though, so I’ll let it die, but not without some worry to the climate.
