washington dc metro area gay, lesbian, bi, transgender, queer, etc. blogs and journals

For a while, I’d been telling Jeff that I had been thinking about maintaining a list of GLBTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, homosexual, transgender, queer, etc.) folk in the DC metro area (DC; Northern Virginia, including so far Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax, Herndon, Montclair, Vienna, Woodbridge; Maryland, including so far Baltimore, Gaithersburg, Hyattsville, Laurel, Silver Spring, Upper Marlboro) who maintain blogs or journals. Today, with the day off, I finally had some time to put into it and, for what it’s worth, here it is. If you know of others not included, please drop me a line or leave a comment, and I’ll update the list. If you have other suggestions for making this more useful, please let me know those as well.

This is nifty. Thanks, man! :)

Thanks…what a great service! And interesting, too..

Oh wow! Very cool site! And thank you for linking to mine! :) Big bearhugs!

If you have not, you should check out the Radical Faeries sometime.


Wow.. how did you find all of the links?

It involved a fair amount of time and diligence; I started with the sites I knew, and followed their links. Then I went to the cool DC Metro Blog Map, and checked every link on that site for clues to their owners’ orientations. Once I ended up on some LJ sites, I started following links to friends, and friends’ friends, and so on.
