Saying Goodbye to 365gay | Queer Landia

365gay news

 

This is a very sad day. The gay news site 365gay.com is coming to an end. I am not sure of the reasons for this, as Logo should be able to sustain the blog financially. I have been reading 365gay for years. I love the format of the site. I also love the voices and opinions.

When I heard about Queerty closing, I wasn’t really upset. I had never really read the site. With 365gay closing, I am deeply upset. I go to 365gay.com at least 3 times a day to catch up on news. I like the layout of the blog and the style. I enjoy it when the readers post their comments and the writers reply. I love the simplicity of the older layout (the new one is still nice, but not as simplistic).

I don’t know what I am going to do now to get my recaps of gay news events. I enjoyed being able to get an overview of the events going on in our community with links for further reading. I enjoyed the sometimes snarky way the writers would respond to readers and vice verse.

Can you suggest any sites that offer an easy to find overview of gay events with links to more information (outside of the QueerLandia family of sites)? If so, please leave me a comment so I can check out the site.

For now, I bow my head an offer a few moments of silence for the memory of a wonderful site.

Hi 365gay readers,

Some of you have been reading since 365gay was started as a Canadian publication in the 1990s. Some of you have been reading since Logo took over, in 2006. Some of you are newer – last year, last month, last week.

I myself started with 365gay in April 2007 and it’s been quite a ride.

With the help of James Withers, who’s been freelancing for the site since September 2007 when he began writing for our election blog Visible Vote, and an incredibly dedicated, talented group of freelance writers, reporters, columnists and interns, 365gay has covered almost five years of amazing gay and national news.

Now, it’s coming to an end.

LGBT Omnibus Bill of 2011 | Queer Oakland

Click the picture to take the survey!

 

Under Federal laws, LGBT citizens do not enjoy full equality. I received the following email from Representative Jared Polis asking me for help in writing a new bill. Instead of having numerous bills with limited focus, Jared would like to create an all-inclusive bill.

This is your chance to give your Congress your opinion. What do you think is the number one priority for equality? What areas of the law are we treated unequally? There is even a place where you can share your own personal story.

I know that the fight for equality is extremely hard, time consuming and very expensive. We don’t get many opportunities to make a difference by spending 5 to 10 minutes on our computer. Please don’t let this opportunity pass by without giving your voice, even if this doesn’t directly effect you. If we don’t speak up, how will anyone hear us?
