Queer Visalia

I just stumbled upon two Visalian-based gay websites, and perhaps you can make of it what you will, but here they are:

www.OutVisalia.org
www.QueerVisalia.com

I’m not gay but respect people who have the courage to come out of the closet. I also see no problem with their right to marry — it doesn’t infringe on my own right to marry, so why the bother? But that’s just me.

Anyway, it’s good to see there’s a local gay community not afraid to speak out. However, the Queer Visalia blog doesn’t really speak out, nor do they have much to do with Visalia. So I’m not quite sure what to make of them, other than it’s a great start.

I do have to say this: that one picture of that one guy, um, needs to be, erm, hidden or obscured or… something. Because people who genuinely want to read what the gay community has to say will have to be sure there is no one looking over their shoulder and asking, “What the HELL website are you looking at?”

But then again, who am I to tell anybody what to do?

    You caught the site before it was really up and running. Things started taking off in December of 2007, and now we have a nice number of people from the Visalia area who blog on the site. Check us out again.
