TBPlogolrg.gifWe've kept you in suspense for months now as we've planned for next week's re-launch about who would be joining the site. Are you ready for the big list of contributors? We're excited about the starting line up - and are already planning for the second wave of new folks joining the The Bilerico Project family in the next couple of months.

I think you'll agree that we'll be offering one of the most diverse groups of LGBTQ individuals on the internet - all in one spot. Whether you're interested in pop culture, politics, cartoons, video blogging, mainstream issues like marriage and Don't Ask Don't Tell, or homelessness and queer theory, we'll have it all available - just for you. Pick and choose or read it all - the choice is yours. We'll have it.

Be sure to give the newbies a warm welcome and a thank you for agreeing to participate in our experiment. All of them will go live on the site next Monday when we start our beta period.

I'm positive that you are as thrilled to have a source for content by all of these noted individuals as I am to be hosting the experiment. From our humble beginnings when we began our group blog experience, we've evolved dramatically and quickly. We may have a long way to go before reaching full equality, but it'll be a fascinating trip. Won't you join us? The possibilities for detours are endless and the conversations should be amazing.
