QUEER ME UP an optimum gay culture experience in the web.
I recently created this gay web-magazine with the intent to present, comment and generate opinion about a wide range of topics concerning gay culture; from relationships and civil rights to gay pride and entertainment. I surf the net looking for news, videos and other things that in my opinion are interesting and relevant to the gay community and then I post an extract for you. I also write my own articles, reviews and reports. Queer Me Up is my special initiative directed to the GLBT community and to all the people that can relate with a sense of freedom and authenticity.
There is so much going on in the gay world right now, so many changes, so much progress and still so many battles. I feel sad and concerned when I read the news, and then I feel extremely happy and joyful when I step into a gay bar. My only question is how do I manage to live this conflicting life between anguish and exhilaration? How is it possible that this weekend I am celebrating gay pride and the next weekend I am protesting for equality? Well in order to figure that out I am going to use my writing as an exercise to reflect on my queer, fabulous and complicated gay life.
We are living in a crucial moment in history where our queer beliefs and our different gay lifestyles are transforming; they are evolving into some utopia that we cannot quite figure out yet. We are being categorized by society as the new generation of men in charge of defining and preserving the way “gay” is to be viewed in the future. I am sure that like me, many of you would find this challenging. I think we need to have a platform to convey and communicate with others of our own kind about it.
My main goal is to develop a space where I can express my thoughts and share them with all my fellow queers out there in a friendly way. I also would like you to think of this Gay web-magazine as yours, so feel free to write a comment anytime or to send me some of your writing to be published. In the meantime we can share some laughs about all the gay culture out there, making fun of our eccentricities, our preposterous behaviours, and our wacky identities. I hope with your help we can develop a big community of people exchanging views, embracing homosexuality and celebrating diversity. Let’s get queered up!
