!! OMG, your voice is important: 15th Annual LGBTQ Survey !!


It’s time again for the LGBTQ Perspectives Survey!

Your participation provides vital information that allows us to keep the site going by showing companies all around the world that queer media matters.

Previous surveys have yielded 45,000 respondents from 150 countries and help set LGBTQ-positive agendas as companies work on their advertising budgets. As sites like ours begin to phase out invasive third party cookies, surveys are a high quality, voluntary method of providing our advertisers with relevant reader information.

CLICK HERE TO START THE SURVEY (and don’t forget to select “OMG.BLOG” when you get to the last question).

BONUS: Everyone who completes the survey by June 30th may enter an optional drawing to win one of twenty US $50 cash prizes, or if you win, you can designate a charity to receive the $50.

The survey is conducted by LGBTQ research firm Community Marketing, Inc.

!! OMG, a webcomic: ‘Gay Men to…’ #02 !!

The second installment of “Gay Men to…” a series of beautiful, clever hand-painted webcomics by artist Dylan Glynn, premiering exclusively on OMG.BLOG.

In Glynn’s words:

“Gay men to” started as a comedic observation of conflict in the gay men’s community (“Gay Men to Gay Men”), but then started to branch out to other identities. It makes me think of how gender and sexual identities exist in relation to one another, the tensions and threads that run through some identities and, simultaneously, the walls that divide (“protect”?) them from one another.

Find the first installment of “Gay Men to…” here, and check out “Gay Men to Everyone Else” and “Gay Men to Themselves (with bonus panels)” after the jump!

!! OMG, watch and play: Seeking David Boreanaz !!

Seeking David BoreanazFor about a year now, we’ve all surrendered to our screens. Between working from home on our laptops, connecting with friends over video chat, and scrolling through social media, the pandemic has strengthened our relationship with the Internet and the communities it cultivates and provides space for. Some might argue that behind the screen is where we are most vulnerable.

Seeking David Boreanaz, a new interactive web series by Victoria Pandeirada (@victoriapand) and Rachel Davies (@rachelcomplains) explores these vulnerabilities through screen recordings of video chats, emails, and various web activity. It follows the online footprints of two individuals who are joined together through a subreddit about the show Bones, with Choose Your Own Adventure-style navigation.

!! OMG, they’re coming for us: Gal Palz !!

Gal Palz XXX Trauma Crime Investigators
Last week, we reviewed the Gal Palz YouTube show and Instagram account (@gal__palz). We had only praise and enthusiasm for their work, but the ladies behind the show were NOT pleased to hear it.

Evidently, we crossed a boundary with the Gal Palz, and they have a lot to say about it. Although listening is discouraged, you can hear it all in the first episode of their new podcast XXX Trauma Crime Investigations.

In the inaugural episode, the Gal Palz delve deep into the OMG.BLOG identity and tear us apart in just eleven minutes. If you, like us, are a fan of Dr. Jenessa Kookoolori Flaunders Mill, there is also a guest appearance by her. Our only advice is to stop listening before the end or you will feel pathetic.

Check out the pod after the jump if you must!
