When I received my copy of the Advocate this afternoon with my “snail mail,” I naturally ripped it open to read the cover story, “Revenge of the Bloggers.” Alas, that this was largely a story on the “outing” of Jeff Gannon. And while reporter Jen Christensen wrote, “Bloggers–even gay bloggers–are not uniformly anti-Bush,” she only lists one gay blogger (the very Mr. Gannon) who supports the president.
I have already put in a call to the magazine to see why this reporter all but ignored gay conservative blogs. And not just this one. She could also note the Wizbang winner for Best LGBT blog, BoiFromTroy (who bested this blog by a mere 16 votes). Or a number of other good conservative (& libertarian) blogs which appear on our blogroll, including Another Gay Republican, Gay and Right, North Dallas Thirty, Queer Conservative, Rick Sincere’s News and Views and Romeo Mike, to name just a few.
Once again, it seems the “mainstream” gay media is ignoring gay conservative voices.
