GayCities Welcomes You to the New Queerty

The GayCities team--David, Matt, Oscar, Scott, Chris and Dan--in our SF office.

Here at GayCities HQ in San Francisco, we follow blogs religiously. There are many fine ones. But one consistently stands out, sparking the most water-cooler (if we could afford one) conversation: the one and only Queerty. Whether the topic is an originally reported article about a gay teen hoping to attend the prom, a critique of a pompous leader or organization or a laugh out-loud-post about the latest gay Internet sensation, Queerty’s talented stable of writers and editors managed to be lacerating, serious and hilarious, often within the same post. Even when it failed to live up to its own standards, it was never boring, not least because the Queerty community would light up with criticism.

Ah, how we love the Queerty community. Readers from around the globe passionately engage with Queerty’s unique voice and eccentric headlines, creating debate, adding their own insights and twists to breaking news. Sure it can be shrill and rough around the edges, but the Queerty community is never afraid to tell Queerty–or anyone else–what they are full of. Since we already run GayCities, where users review and share about the best places in 200 cities worldwide, we knew the power of real people’s feedback for finding great experiences. The Queerty community added the same kind of value to the issues of the day, sharing comments about all gay life has to offer, from political breakthroughs to erotic adventures, but also insights for overcoming obstacles and bringing down the villains who would do us harm or at least slow us down.

So when Queerty owner David Hauslaib offered GayCities the opportunity to acquire the blog he founded six years ago, we were hooked. After fixing some technical glitches, we are relaunching today. We’re bringing back key Queerty writers including Daniel Villareal, who will post daily from Dallas, while adding a bunch of our own stars such as Matt Baume, Dan Tracer, Oscar Raymundo, Dan Renzi, Scott Wallis, Jeff Katz and GayCities New York City editor Jeffrey James Keyes.

I myself am a veteran of two decades in gay media, starting as The Advocate with stops at PlanetOut and in book writing. Bringing GayCities and Queerty together is for me, as co-founder of this company, a kind of content dream come to life, a rare chance to be both politically provocative and entertaining in a way that few media companies have achieved this side of Comedy Central and Gawker.

While we are committed to maintaining the best of Queerty, we also recognize that you have demanded change. In recent months the Queerty patented wit devolved into predictable snark, eviscerating everyone and everything in its path. Some of the comments simply piled on. We will maintain the independent voice at all cost, going with a vengeance after the powerful, the hypocritical and the just plain foolish. But now we’ll also strive for a better sense of journalistic balance and fairness.

In other words we’re going to keep afflicting the comfortable; only now we’ll take care to comfort the afflicted as well.

As always, let us know exactly what’s on your mind…

      Thanks for saving the site guys, a clearinghouse of independent, non-sponsored gay stories is very lacking outside this blog. Looking forward to seeing what you bring to it. Oh, and just because we can’t let this posting go without a usual dose of Queerty Snark, scan down to see what you’ve let yourself info with all of these regular posters. ;)

      I personally am just glad to see the site back up and running. I am peace corps volunteer serving in Burkina Faso and this is my source for what is going on in the gay world. Technically they say that no one here in Burkina is gay; so I am not allowed to tell anyone that I am gay. It could very well endanger my life. So being able to find a place to stay connected with gay news going on at home and around the world is amazing. I look forward ot see what you do with the site. ;)

      I realized where I drew the line when people started criticizing Oprah’s school in Africa. “Hey,” I thought, “before you say ONE WORD against her, say something about all the billionaires who HAVEN’T started a school in Africa.”

      The old Queerty, unfortunately, criticized people who were trying to do the right thing but ran into trouble. In my book, they get a free ride until everybody who HASN’T tried to help us is vilified for having the opportunity and doing nothing.

      Photo says all — as in all male, almost all white, and with nobody, it appears, in danger of turning 30 anytime soon. Meet the new Queerty, same as the old Queerty.

      No surprise. Disappointing, but no surprise — Queerty is what it is, and as long as the current formula makes money, why risk it by being inclusive?

      So, the only real complaint I’m going to make is on the technical side: the site is running more slowly than ever. Before, it ran like molasses. Now it seems to run like molasses in January.

      @Sapphocrat:

      Actually the site is running much faster than it used to, but it sounds more like you are here to just bitch and moan.

      Here is an idea, if you liked the site before, then perhaps you and a group of racially diverse women should have purchased it. But as it is, I’m happy that a clearninghouse site for gay news and information is still available, and how racist and sexist it is of you to just it before seeing what they are putting out there.

      @Cam: Who peed in your Wheaties this morning? Stop putting words like “racist” and “sexist” in my mouth. I said I’m disappointed, not outraged. Queerty is what Queerty is, and if I didn’t like hanging out with a bunch of rich, young, fuck-you-and-the-horse-you-rode-in-on, bitchy queens, I wouldn’t have enjoyed Queerty in the first place. To wit: I’m interacting with *you*.

      Oh, and the day a group of “racially diverse women” has the means (or even the connections) to run a site as well-trafficked as Queerty, I’ll ask them for a job myself. With the exception of Pam Spaulding and… um… and… no one else comes to mind… you boys own Teh Gay, you know you do, and you know you always will. You also know Queerty would go under in a heartbeat if lesbians took over; young, gay, white men have no use for lesbians, “racially diverse” or not.

      It would just be fucking NICE to hear that Queery has asked just one, lone token dyke to make some small contribution somewhere. I don’t expect it, but it would be NICE.

      And the site is running more slowly for me. Or perhaps it’s like the temperature: Once it gets past 50 below, it doesn’t feel like it can get any colder.

      Speaking of the climate, go outside and get some sunshine. It’s going to be a beautiful day, in the high 80s, and it sounds like you could use some fresh air. I know I certainly could.

      I’m just happy that for the first time, Queerty will have a substantive West Coast voice. In addition to the snark, I won’t miss Queerty’s condescending, upper crust tone. The one that threw constant references to New York “hotspots” and culture that the rest of us were worthless for not knowing about. “its like catching the 510 to Queens when you have to go through the borrows on a Fire Island getaway weekend, amirite?”

      (i know that’s probably not a real thing, BTW, but for all I know, then again, it probably is, and some Chelsea snob is ROFL at my cleverness. Good riddance.)

      Hey gayz,
      Welcome back… I seriously did miss you & had no idea this was happening in SFO! Let me know what I can do.
      Here’s my suggestion, put a limit on the # of characters available in each response & make sure the foul language doesn’t make it in… if you accomplish this, you’ll stand a much greater chance of being ‘shared’ in other social media. I still miss the thumbs-up/down in the comments. It’s fun to know whether a comment has been viewed or not.
      Congrats again on the new set up, I really am thrilled to have you back!

      As a native speaker of English, I would greatly appreciate if you would have an editor check spelling and grammar of each headline, and perhaps also of the story, before posting. It just takes a few minutes. The editor doesn’t have to approve the journalism values, check the facts, or any of that stuff. Just try to reduce the abuses of English to a tolerable level.

      I do understand that time is sometimes more valuable than accuracy, and that poking fun at public figures sometimes requires plays on words. Just trying to reduce the amount of unintelligible gibberish, will be appreciated.

      Beyond that, welcome back. I will look forward to seeing some actual news from time to time.

      I’ve felt so bored and empty these past few weeks because I have not kept myself updated on all things LGBT since the site closed. I missed my daily dose of queer. I’ve wandered into other gay sites but they just weren’t Queerty and going back to them didn’t feel right. Some of them have HORRIBLE layouts and don’t have the kind of stories and the spin Queerty has. I missed it all so much!

      This is GREAT news. Congratulations and I hope this proves out to be hugely successul and lucrative for you all!!

I’m glad to see blogs like Queerty carrying on that left-of-center, out-of-the-mainstream queer journalistic tradition.

      I just discovered this site, so I can’t say at all what changes I’d like to see. I’m looking forward to following it, though.
      One criticism I do have about most queer blogs is that they all seem to be written by urban techie-queens obsessed with uber-hipness. Does anyone ever have anything to say to or from the perspective of the gay blue-collar guy? I know shit-loads of gay and lesbians who are electricians, plumbers, carpenters (finish and rough – yes, I know there’s a snark there), landscapers, mechanics, ditch-diggers….People who are too tired to move at the end of the work day. Do any of you ever talk to these people?

      @afrolito: Racist. I don’t need to see black people in the photo. I don’t see why you would need to, either. Or, do you have something against white people?

      Good luck to all the new crew – I think you will make this place even better than before. So far the ideas proposed sound awesome… keep it up.

      It’s nice to see as some things change, some stay the same. Welcome back “new” Queerty and it’s nice to see the same old snarky bitches as well. Oh, Queerty, how I missed you.

      I was a little wary about the re-launch of Queerty, since their journalistic integrity has certainly slipped lately. But once I saw Chris Bull leading the charge, editor (I assume the same Chris Bull) of two of my favorite books (Witness to Revolution and especially Come Out Fighting) I immediately became hopeful that this site could produce some mature and accurate news. It’s hard to find legitimate LGBT journalism sometimes in a sea of celebrity gossip, half-naked men, and pointless potshots at NOM. PLEASE DON’T DISAPPOINT!

      You’re off to a smart start, dear new Queerty staff: smarter snark, fewer typos, and a wider breadth of topics.

      Where Queerty shines versus its competitors is in the variety of smart, outspoken, diverse commenters assembled here. When the site stopped listening, many of us bailed.

      Like others, I was bored senseless by the hum drum posts & bland PC commenters at Pam’s, Bil’s, Joe’s and Andy’s blogolas.
      They serve their purpose, but those sites feel much more impersonal: less cross-talk and lots of interesting threads that never get a comment stream flowing.

      “Keep you eye on the tide, not the waves.”
      (I copied that from a book, and I have no clue what it means.)

      @TheRealAdam: Racist because I don’t see black people in the photo? That makes no sense at all. Of course YOU don’t need to see black people in the photo, which most likely means you’re a racist…..and stupid.

      @Cam: I may have missed the Asian, but but certainly not the blacks, since they aren’t there. Why do I need to buy the site to make a comment about that? You’re stupid.

      I do enjoy reading Queerty articles and was disappointed when it disappeared. Glad to have it back. However, please stop with that vapid Davey Wavey – he isn’t newsworthy, at all. He cheapens the blog!
