I'm going to take it on faith that you already subscribe to the Bilerico RSS feed and that you're looking for something new to feed your blog addiction.
My rules for choosing these blogs were simple and frankly subjective:
- the blogs had to be gay in content, style and tone
- the blogs had to keep my interest
- as much as I love blogs like Buffawhat and Knuckle Crack, the personal blogs of Bilerico contributors are not included
I also wanted to spotlight blogs that have not yet made it to the cool kids table in the gayosphere lunchroom.
With that I give you 5 Gay Blogs You Should Be Reading (But Probably Aren't):
Gay Politics - Gay Politics is the place to go to find everything you could want to know about openly LGBT elected officials and candidates. If you are wondering where is the gay political power, there it is.
Grace the Spot - Looking at Grace the Spot's Stuff Lesbians Like, it becomes clear that lesbians are about way more than acoustic music and flannel. The Graces popped on our radar when they were a finalist in the Best New Blog category in the 2008 Weblog Awards.
Jockohomo - Jockohomo is strung out on jargon. And music, muscular men, graphic design, politics, art and much more. He also has one of the best designed blogs out there chocked full of all kinds of visual goodness.
Life Lube - If its related to gay and bi men, you will find it on Life Lube. The Life Lube team, which includes the fabulous Jim Pickett who wrote The Future of Anal Sex, covers all the "gay, sexy, healthy stuff that keeps gay and bi men together." Though it covers a wide range of issues affecting our lives including physical, mental and emotional health, it goes down far smoother than the icky Castor Oil your mom forced on you as a kid.
The New Gay - The New Gay is for those who, as they say, are "over the rainbow." It offers a fresh round of new voices that are to the left of the LGBT center.
