TNG in the Media

This (shamelessly self-aggrandizing) post was written by TNG co-founder Zack.
From the inception of The New Gay it was important to us be more than a blog that just catalogues what we had for dinner the previous night or which of our cats is the fluffiest. We try to provide content that has a relevance for the larger world. Though we hope we have succeeded, we think a greater proof rests in the caliber of other websites that have linked to us. Here are some of the other media outlets that have given TNG some love.

1. Andrew Sullivan’s The Daily Dish: The conservative gay bear blogger has given us two shout-outs, resulting in some of the highest traffic in TNG’s history. The honored posts were Ben’s “Land Without Pride” and Zack’s “The Indie Rock Fag’s Top 17 Homo Love Songs.

2. The Bilerico Project: National gay news compendium has featured several TNG articles, including Michael’s “Shadow Boxing with HIV” and Zack’s “Meat-ing in The Middle.

3. Brightest Young Things: DC party and culture blog named us one of its 10 Great Gay Things About DC.

4. Curbside: Queer Minneapolis cartoonist Rob Kirby, of the ever-incredible Curbside series, lent us some of his strips last year and threw us a couple mentions as a result. He gave TNG a general introduction and also reprinted our review of his “Book of Boy Trouble” comics anthology.

5. DCist: The source for all things DC devoted a whole post to our 2007 “hug-in” protest at a homophobic Rite-Aid and announced when we finally went full time.

6. Gawker: New York media snarkers liked our Bottoms for Obama post.

7. The Georgetown Voice: The college newspaper’s blog took exception to Corey’s post about gay life at Georgetown.

8. Ghostland Obervatory: The website for this Austin dance-rock duo was fond of our “Ask A Straight Guy” interview with its member Thomas Turner.

9. Jenny Miller: Former TNG contributor Jenny Miller shone some light on Lez Casual, an expose on what the self-respecting lesbian can wear to the office.

10. Jimbo: Local blogger, rugger and all-around handsome guy Jimbo referred to us an “interesting new blog” when we were first launching. Thanks, Jimbo!

11. Joey Bahamas: Local blogger and sometime contributor follows up on some of some writing he had done for TNG.

12: Knucklecrack: New York safer-sex activist has some nice things to say about us in his recap of a queer blogger summit we both attended.

13: Metro Weekly: Local gay publication featured TNG contributors Ben and Laura in an article featuring DC bloggers, Life in Real Time, and included them on the cover of the magazine. The MW also acknowledges that our “Where is Our Anger”article and photo spread on a savage Adams Morgan gay bashing riled the local community to reform anti-attack group Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence.

14: MSNBC: The online news outlet finds Katy Perry as annoying as we do and links to our interview with her, calling it “confrontational” and “rattling.” High praise.

15. Nellies: Shaw’s gay sports bar leads its fans to a review of when Zack threw his 24th birthday party there.

16. Of Montreal: The fan site for the Atlanta falsetto-rock band includes a spirited discussion of whether or not Zack was setting back the movement with his interview of Of Montreal’s pansexual frontman Kevin Barnes.

17. Pathetic Geek Stories: Only a true Pathetic Geek reads schaudenfraude cartoon site Pathetic Geek Stories. Naturally, we hear at TNG read it every day. They gave us some love after we announced their triumphant return.

18. Queercents: Homo-finance site conducts an interview with Zack and Michael.

19. Whatever: Ohio-based, Hugo-winning author John Scalzi got ahold of Zack’s aforementioned “Top 17 Homo Love Songs” and decided to share them with his readers.

20. Spin: The music magazine also sided with us in not being so crazy about Katy Perry.

21. Washington Blade: When Zack still worked for The Blade, they let him write about the process of learning about DC’s alternative scene. They also once gave him a leather makeover, which has nothing to do with TNG but is interesting nonetheless.

22: Washington City Paper: DC’s alternative weekly both referenced us in an article about Phase 1′s door policy and in an account of Todd Metrokin’s Adams Morgan gay bashing.

23: Wikipedia: The world’s must trustworthy online “encyclopedia” lists us as references in several entries, including Animal Collective and our old friend Katy Perry.
