Well, here they are: GayCities’ David, Matt, Oscar, Scott, Chris and Dan are the new team behind the kinder, less “making shit up” Queerty, and they look great! No word on how much GayCities paid Queerty founder David Hauslaib for all that high gay SEO valued content (“Lady Gaga,” “Glee,” etc.), but hopefully not too much! $5000? $10,000? $1,000,000? Ha ha.
In an intro article, editor Chris Bull says that, “In recent months the Queerty patented wit devolved into predictable snark, eviscerating everyone and everything in its path,” which is true! The other thing Queerty was? A boring aggregator of gay content from other sources. Less of that, please, and more original stories. The new Queerty people will be so busy doing their own reporting, they won’t even have time to be cunts! And they’re off to a great start, actually. (See the cute video below.)
Also, please stop titling every post with headlines in the form of a question (e.g., “Why didn’t Osama bin Laden support gay marriage?”) that we already know the answer to or simply don’t care to know. You aren’t a tabloid magazine people are bored or lulled into reading while waiting in the checkout line at the grocery store. If your content is of genuine interest, you don’t need to sensationalize it and trick people to click through for one or two obvious sentences and a link to your source.
Anyway, good luck, you guys!
