A Brief Blog Profile: Gay Gamer

by Thomas Hynes


Gay Gamer is a lot what it sounds like. But in case you're confused, it's a video game blog dedicated to the gay and lesbian community. Or as their tag line so cheekily says, "For boys who like boys who like joysticks! And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!"  And that's the kind of humor you can expect from this site. They're serious about the video games. But, you know, it's video games. Might as well have a sense of humor.

Speaking of humor, did you know that Don Flemenco from the original "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out" was gay? I didn't know that! That is until Gay Gamer outed him on their list of the 20 Gayest Video Game Characters. This list is part funny and part really true. But it also says,  "There are and always have been gay video game characters and don't let anyone tell you differently." Another great feature is the  Gay Gamer of the Week. This week it's Rich P. Congratulations, Rich!  Oh and if you like wordplay, let me direct you to the site's product review section, also known as the gamer's closet. 

Now look, even if this is a "gay" website, I feel safe saying even straight gamers could learn a thing or two. After all, they're just video games. And they're for everyone.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
