Hey. Our pal (and member of the SRS yahoogroup) ‘veggietwentysix’ compiled a recent list of online discussions. It’s great. Thanks, veggie (and also for expanding our links section – check it out for some new articles). He also pointed out that since I added so many articles from my old website that the blog heavily leans towards discussing racism against Asian Gays. So, we’d love to hear from other perspectives – anyone who wants to write articles or postings, please send ’em to us, and we’ll put it up.  – Andy

Happy New Year. I was on Huffingtonpost and read something that led me to
the following discussions online around sexual racism. I’m posting them here
because I think it’s useful to collect such links and it’s always heartening to
see the topic being discussed. I apologize if any of them have been posted
before.

This was the post on huffingtonpost:

He writes at one point,”I know I’m not so supposed to mention this for fear that
I might be misquoted by social conservatives, but queer people are frequently
and impressively mean to one another.”

He touches on racism and included a link that led to the others I found below.

what many gay men believe to be ”preferences”)

I’d like to say kudos to Archie comics for its completely normal treatment of a
gay interracial relationship. They could have easily had two gay, white
characters but they went another way. Little decisions like these are what, in
my opinion, what it takes to end the sexual racism that exists. I think it’s a
positively subversive move and one that should be applauded. It’s really great.
I love that Clay looks like me, if I were a cartoon, I’d look just like him in
that cover pic. Hopefully, they’ll have gay friends of all colors. If you’re so
inclined, I encourage you to contact them and let them you know you support what
they’re doing and that you’d like to see more of it in the future.
