Good Bye...: Thanks for Four Great Years!

Tags:
This post was submitted by Michael

I’ll just rip off the bandage:  The New Gay is shutting down.   It’s been a fun ride over the past four years.  But the site grew so much and so quickly that our rag-tag group of volunteers couldn’t keep up with it.  After wrangling with this issue for a while, we decided it was time to close up shop.   So now, it’s on to other things.
Thank you to all of our volunteer contributors who have helped out over our run, and to all those who have read, commented, attended events, etc.
We’ll keep the site up as long as we can to act as a library of sorts, for all our old content that is still relevant to anyone questioning gay culture, but we won’t be producing any new content.

We have a limited supply of TNG T-shirts still available at a super discount of $13, priced to cover production and shipping costs.

For DC folks, Beat City will continue out from under the TNG banner.  Check us out on Facebook to keep in touch with your beers, queers and rock & roll.

Any further inquiries about The New Gay can be directed to me at meichler@thenewgay.net.

Thanks again!

–Michael

    The New Gay calls it quits….

    The web site The New Gay has announced that it is shutting down. I saw its demise coming a while back, as articles other than “Song of the Day” slacked off. While I am sad to see TNG go, I believe t……

    Strangely the donation link is still up.

    Thanks to the New Gay for housing my “Cynical And Southern” column for almost two years. I will sincerely miss working with you guys and I appreciate that you forced me to think harder and write better.

    For those who enjoyed my writing I’m still writing for The Daily Loaf – find me on Facebook.

    To all the writers and friends I made at TNG…let’s stay in touch.

    This is a total disappointment. It’s incredibly sad and I wish I had time, savings, energy to somehow take it over or organize a movement to salvage it- sadly, that’s a dream.

    you have something here and its magical.

    Any chance of just doing a quarterly print mag?
    It would free up time, put less pressure on constant updates and the need to be so local specific (let others do that on a local blog) yet still keep it alive in some way.

    Have you talked to The Advocate or Out? someone related to a gay Halliburton will want to pick this up.

    I guess if all these options have been considered, then there’s nothing else.

    Thank you for an awesome ride.

    Dan

    P.S. I need to get a new shirt, it turned pink and shrunk in the wash…completely my fault (red sock).

    Hi,

    I’ve been coming here for a fair while and I think it fills a pretty important part of the spectrum, no pun intended.

    Is there no one else to take it over?

  • Marcelo said:

    I misses u New Gay. A lot.

  • Volker said:

    Sad… why don’t you guys just let TNG sit dormant for a while? Until someone is willing to continue? Cost cannot be a factor: websites are so inexpensive to maintain if you don’t strive to have all the latest bells and whistles: content counts. Best wishes to you all…
