The representation of gay life online doesn’t always reflect the everyday reality. It’s not all hedonism and flamboyance. Increasingly, gay men have grown frustrated by content that really doesn’t talk to them about their true interests and instead promotes the same old sensational stereotypes.
But now there’s a new cultural website for gay men, not defined solely by their sexuality. Fellow Resident introduces gay artists, writers and designers from around the world, with the focus squarely on stories of creativity and success.
According to founder Joe Perry, “Our content celebrates the progressive pioneers, the humble trailblazers and those challenging perceptions, to expose a more authentic image of what it means to be gay today.”
