The Advocate published their list of "Top Political Blogs" today and the magazine spotlights Bilerico Project in the top slot. I have to admit, their description of our little corner of the queer web is one of the best I've seen.

The Bilerico Project: To be fair, Bilerico is a little bit of everything, but as the famous expression of the feminist movement goes, the personal is political. Bilerico deploys citizen journalists and experts across the country to report back to its loyal readers each day on events and the hot topics of the day. The big-name celebrities may lend their voices to The Huffington Post, but the insightful gays blog for Bilerico.

My elevator phrase for the site is, "We're the opinion pages for all the news sites. We may not break a lot of news, but we shape it." I love the opinion pages of a newspaper; the comics, the puzzles, the columnists of all persuasions and editorials. While the news remains supreme, the opinion pages are what makes the news relevant - and interesting.

Other honored blogs include Joe.My.God., Politico, BlogActive, and the Daily Beast. Congrats to our fellow honorees and thanks to all the Projectors for stopping by daily to see what we're talking about.

Yay Bil and the Ed Team and all of us! I'm ecstatic.

The award is deserved. You guys provide a civil environment for debate. Though sometimes people get snippy, it never gets as nasty as other blogs. I think you set a good example and people follow. Good jobies.

That's right, we bad, uh-huh...

Kudos to Bil for launching the idea, and to all the ed team and contributors for keeping that idea flying every day.

Congrats for the honor Bil. It's definitely well deserved.

Hopefully they'll remember that when the pass out the press credentials for the 2012 DNC convention.

Hey Bil and E.T. -

Congratulations. You deserve it. And conrats on busting past 3200 subscribers.

"They like you; they really, really like you!!"

congratulations Bil! Ya'll deserve it.

Congrats Bil, and everyone else here for making this one of the coolest, queerest places to hang out on the web!

This is so excellent! I think The Advocate's nod to the politics of personal experience really gets to the heart of Bilerico's intervention. I love y'all for making this space!

You never told me I'd be joining a political blog and a respectable one, at that! I intend to work harder to keep things gutteral.

Congratulations are in order! Thanks for starting Bilerico! Thanks for everything! Especially for asking great questions about us T-People! Now if ya just made a dime or two from this! I'm sure that would be a great reward! Regina
