Queerty is better as a member

So Long, Farewell…


Well, reader – I don’t know how to tell you this, so I’ll just come out and do it: today’s my last day as Queerty’s head homo.

Yes, after over two years, I’m moving on to other virtual pastures. Before I go, however, I must say it’s been a pleasure writing this site everyday. Okay, it wasn’t always a pleasure, but I can honestly say it’s been a trip. We’ve had some ups, some downs, a lot of laughs, a few tears and other emotions that I’m assuming we’ve all experienced.

If you want to find me – and I hope you do! – head on over to wowOwow.com, where I’ll be chugging away as the new managing editor.

As for Queerty – a swell new editor will be introduced on Monday, but you’ll have to wait until then for the big reveal. Trust I wouldn’t leave you in incapable hands.

I’m sure I’ll be seeing you – have a few more tricks up my sleeve, if you will, and promise to write lots of love letters. Who knows? Some of them may be dirty…

xo,
AB

      Don’t take this the wrong way, because I wish you lots of luck, but isn’t the whole point of wowOwow that it’s written by women and from a woman’s POV? I mean, it’s wowOwow, the women on the web. I don’t read there very often, but has it always been run by men, or is this a new direction?

      Ciao bella, fella. In light of this news, I must ask why you weren’t the Morning Goods today?

      Oh, right…new job.

      Good luck Andy! You will be greatly missed here.

      But my sarcastic nature doesn’t allow the enjoyment of site like wowOwow.com… or Lifetime:television for women… or we…or Meredith Baxter Birney..

      Anyway, best wishes sweetie.

      Goodbye and good luck!

      Perhaps the new editor will take the time to report real FACTS, tone down the snark, and have a more diverse “morning goods”. Some of us love and appreciate the beauty of black, asian, latino, and white men.

      What? I just find a blog that is informative and witty and all that jazz and I come to the end of the venture? Le *sigh*! ;)

      Thank-you for making the past couple of weeks exciting for me to be able to read your blog. I may be Canadian, but it is always good to keep on the informative political side of things as well down south.

      Good luck and many blessings.

      Well and so comes to end free speech on Queerty. :)

      Hope new Gay BLOGS are born and that they are more favorable to true American Ideals.

      I hasd my beef with you, you know about the whole being in the tanks for Obama thing but as far as Gay bloggers come you were one truly great one.

      Best of luck in all your future endeavours.
