WHAT WE ARE
A place to encourage rational conversation between GLBT folk who have had more than enough sex talk and who are looking for conversations of substance.
The Links section features History, Studies, Articles, Essays, Audio/Video, Reviews, Forums, a focused selection of world News Outlets, Columnists and Net Radio streams. Please make suggestions.
We are here to be an interesting and refreshing place to return. This site was inspired by the former Intellectual chat rooms on Gay.com and Gaydar.co.uk

GAY.COM NUKES CHAT ROOMS
Without warning, GDC chose to destroy thousands of friendships by nuking their chat rooms. They replaced them with severely limited messaging that they say improves the service, "while cutting out the unwanted chatter". READ STORY
Former members of the GDC Intellectual room have regrouped privately elsewhere, with a differently themed purpose. Interest can be passed along through this site.
There are no current plans to reestablish an Intellectual chat room.

Until they are back, join us on Gaydar.co.UK in the Intellectuals chat room and let your friends know.
