Fagburn quite likes a lot of the stuff on AfterElton and AfterEllen, mainly the content that's reader generated.
Here's 'AfterElton.com's Top 50 Gay Male Musicians'by Davis Mallory.
"Our countdown of modern popular music's most influential and intriguing openly gay or bisexual male artists."

Freddie Mercury is misspelt "Freddy Mercury".

"He was knighted in 1995 for his charitable work by Queen Elizabeth and wed his husband, David Furnish, in 2005..."
No, he wasn't.
I could go on...
