    Regular readers will notice a few changes to the blog today, some subtle but the primary difference is the addition of several new advertisements from the Gay Ad Network.  Mark Elderkin, the founder of Gay.com, launched the Gay Ad Network in August to pool together the premium gay media websites and blogs -- there's an incomplete list in the graphic below this post -- to reach a higher grade of corporate advertiser than the member websites could on their own:

    "Independent web publishers have been successful in creating great quality content and attracting loyal and passionate audiences, but they have been less effective in attracting national advertisers due to their limited individual size," said Elderkin. "By developing content-rich marketing programs that span our aggregated audience, we can provide unique marketing vehicles for our advertising partners."

    I am delighted that Gay News Watch and this blog have both been accepted into the network.  Initially you'll see public service announcements in the ad slots I've set up for the Gay Ad Network, but eventually somebody will love me enough to pay for the honor of getting your attention.

    I am wary, of course, of cluttering up the site with too many ads or detracting from your experience as a reader. But as my partner and I continue on our international journey -- we're both soon to be expats, but more on that in a few days' time -- some revenue driplets will make a difference.

    And as I said just a few days ago when celebrating my first blog birthday, thank you very much for your support.

      Congrats on the Ads!!!
      How on earth did you manage to get money out of Southern Voice, Wash Blade, Bladewire, Genre, etc.

      That's just AMAZING!!! Wow

      Sigh...Double T, you certainly make up in mean-spirited enthusiasm what you lack in reading comprehension. The publications you mentioned, along with Express Gay News and David-Atlanta magazine, are indeed part of the Window Media family I co-founded. But they're not paying for the ads. Try re-reading the post (or, more likely, actually reading it for the first time.) They are client-publications of the Gay Ad Network, just like this blog and Gay News Watch.

      I owe you an apology. Yes, I skimmed the blog this mornnig. If did not read it completely.


      Please keep up and good work, even the work I decide not to agree with.
      If it were for you, who would I and the trannies have to pick on. ; )

      I'll try and "play nice"

      **But as my partner and I continue on our international journey -- we're both soon to be expats**

      So you've leaving Brazil?
      What's Up?

      Thanks for the offer, Double T. It would be nice if at least some trans activists would relax the ironic, tired air that pervades all their disagreements over ENDA. I know that if I were advocating some other group wait for their rights until I could get mine, I would at least try to be nice about it. I certainly wouldn't act as if the debate were some opportunity to practice my triple-snap drag queen "read" of them.

      You are correct. We are both leaving Brazil. More on that in the next few days…

      CC, yes it is amazing how tempers flair. Certainly I am guilty of this. (sorry)

      But if you're going to be really, really passionate about something, let it be your life.
      Ok. Why the secrecy? You’re going to say you’re “moving” but won’t say where. ?!?

      I’m betting Canada or Mexico.

      Missing is a poem, let you in ordinary days to read rhythm, Missing is a shower, let you in a boring day wet up; Missing is a sunshine, let you of the dismal days clear.
