—Queerty and 353Media
Queerty’s tagline was “Free of an agenda. Except that gay one.”
Joe.My.God blog has this information — an email from the Queerty site’s founder to gay porn site The Sword (NSFW) states:
As many of you know, last year Queerty partnered with the folks at 353Media to handle its operations. I transitioned out of my original role to make time to tackle some unrelated projects, and a trusted crew took the reins. Sadly last week, in a scenario that began with some technical headaches, has ended with 353 opting not to continue operating the site. It is a decision I was saddened to hear, and I worked to find an amenable solution that would keep Queerty online. That effort was unsuccessful.
Queerty was a popular blog that took a very snarky point of view on many LGBT issues — from the local to the international. But it also served as an aggregator of gay news from around the world.
