Visit This Blog!

Well folks, I'm still doing the rounds and finding my feet again after a short hiatus from blogging due to mostly not having enough time to think about the site over the early part of the New Year.

Have been looking at some of the new blogs that have arisen and I want to stand up and loudly applaud Scudder and Finn for quite literally sticking their necks out and publishing what I can only assume is Oman's first gay community blog. I am proud of your bravery and your innovation.

Everyone should go and have a read of it, and then maybe email the folks there and give them your feedback.
The gay community in Oman is huge. The closet gay community makes up what I imagine is more than half.

Gays and Lesbians can put the average heterosexual to shame when it comes to support and engagement of those in need, so I want to see this blog eventually blossom into a website and a magazine with help and advice for those who need it, some interesting articles about the community in Muscat and throughout the GCC - and details for places to go, things to do and upcoming events.

No one can keep a lid on this for much longer. This country is tolerant - very much so, and while there's a lot of heads in the sand about the subject, I think that awareness and exposure will only benefit everyone concerned.

The blog is here: www.communityqueer.blogspot.com - go and have a look!

Scudder and Finn.......you're both awesome!

Thanks for sharing JD, totally agree that its courageous and timely that they share their 'world' so that we can all embrace it and promote true sister and brotherly love in this part of the world...

Kudos for directing us their way. I'm off to have read now.
