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

PS: Julie Andrews and those von Trapp brats say it best – after the jump…

    Bon voyage, Andy.

    <3

  • jack jett

    Andrew….Say it ain’t so, gosh darn ya.

    No one else has ever put up with my bullshit like you do.

    Now they will kick my tired bitchy ass off here.

    You were my ace in the hole ho!

    Best of luck………..don’t think for a minute I will not be cyber stalking you.

  • rebecca

    Now where will I get my morning goods?

  • Alexa

    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?

  • Trenton

    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, all the same.

  • Dan Savage

    I’ve really enjoyed this site under you, Andrew.

  • tracy johnson

    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.

  • Ray

    best of luck. i hardly knew ye. in fact i don’t know ye at all.

  • Eminent Victorian

    May the forthcoming editor be spelling-enabled.

    Math was fun; have a super summer!

  • Bitch Republic

    God, let’s hope the new editor has some actual editorial ability.

  • Paul Raposo

    I guess politicians aren’t the only ones who wait until Friday afternoon to release bad news to the public.

    I’m sad to see you go, Andrew; I think you did a fantastic job with Queerty. You’ll be missed 8^)

  • fredo777

    Well. Someone here has certainly earned the first word in their username…

    Me. I’m Fredo.

    Oh, + Bitch Republic.

  • james.p.p.

    AWE.

    We’re gonna miss you!!!

  • Tara - Praenomenal

    Good Luck. Thank you for your work.

  • afrolito

    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.

  • ChristopherM

    It’s been fun Andrew…best of luck!

  • Mike Diamond

    Good luck to ya! Thank you for not using QUEERTY as a platform to promote my videos to your readership….ever…in all this time…even after the sloppy handjob I gave you in the bathroom of the Mailbu Diner…wow, I mean like never

  • José Miguel Villouta

    Good Luck Andrew, and thank you for a job well done!

  • Graham

    We’ll miss you!! Under your command, Queerty has for years been the best resource for gay news on the Internet. Thanks for everything!

  • Kid A

    Yes, thank you Andrew, being a teen in rural Michigan, Queerty was often a much-needed dose of well, queerness.

  • Nick

    oh dear…., Andrew, did you jump or were you pushed?

    Peace Andrew. You’ll be missed and then stalked.

  • Michael vdB

    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.

  • Tony

    Thank you and good luck!

  • JJJJ

    Thanks for all your politically correct bullshit that sure didn’t help when it was time to vote on Prop 8. Weasel.

  • thatguyfromboston

    Fare winds and following seas.

  • My View

    You look sooo Jewish!

    Al the best and good luck!

    Please always remember:

    “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society!”

  • Slider

    Good Luck, Andrew and may the blessings of life and love and laughter and joy be always yours….and when things get crazy, remember every knock is a boost:)

    all the best to you and all the best for you in your future endeavors!!

  • faghag

    @JJJJ: LOL
    that’s just mean.

  • CHURCHILL-Y

    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.

  • faghag

    @CHURCHILL-Y: It’s not the end of free speech, it is hbowever the end for hate speech.
    I wish you would just fuck off and leave us alone.

  • retrofit71

  • Charles Merrill

    Congratulations. These are power women who know what they are doing in back of your new venture. Probably give “View” a run for their money. Look forward to reading more about wowowow.
