12 Gay Networking Sites For Hipsters, Ballers, and the Popularity Obsessed

We’ve already decided that you’re not leaving Facebook, but maybe that’s just because you haven’t found a better alternative. What if we told you there were social networking sites as versatile as Facebook but catered just to LGBTs? There aren’t—we looked. But we did find 12 other queer networking sites that might pique your interest, especially if you’re into people of color, bearded hipsters, popularity contests, the deaf, power suits, and the British. Won’t you let us take you on this sea cruise?

    Haha, I’m not surprised that BGCLive is on here. I have an account and it’s a good site for the most part…if you use it correctly. Avoid the forums if you can’t throw or handle shade and please remember that what you see isn’t always what you get. BGCLive got some negative press, but I enjoy it. Especially if you’re black/Latino and are looking for others to connect in your area. Oh, and ignore the “Distance” thing to let people know how far you are away from each other, BGCLive is NOT a sex site. *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*

    Does the Fabilus logo look like a sphincter on purpose or is it supposed to be subliminal?

    @ossurworld:

    I thought it was a rare bit of amusing snark from Queerty.

    Yeah, uh ok.

    BGClive’s experience will depend on what you’re there for and maybe who you are. It’s really not that diverse and sometimes that limits the interaction. The forums really are a playground for young attitudinal gays to run around talking about each other, music videos, sex acts and so on. Less frequently there’s truly good discussion, but thats the exception, not the rule. They’ve worked pretty consistently on upgrading the site but its still not that polished.

    I don’t go on often because it sits too squarely in the gray area of hook up site and myspace. When I’m in the mood for one, I’m not remotely interested in the other.

    Re: Black sites:
    BLKM4M.com was pretty good, but only lasted a year. BGM.xitti.com was also good but just got pulled after only about 3 months. BigBlkMuscles.com became my recent favorite, but after I made more than 200 friends there and was a full participant, the tyrant there yesterday just deleted me. Another member warned me that the owner, called “BBM”, was a creep and could expect my days would be numbered. The tyrant does not seem to like even well-behaved, respectful white boys on the site, if you ask me. You can join it, but at your own risk. No frontal nudity there, and be sure to couch all talk in subtle double-entendres.
