Gay gift guide

‘Tis the season to be especially gay and merry. Unfortunately there’s more to these joyously commercial holidays than drinking your brandy laden eggnog. Thats right, it’s time for the stress of giving all your loved ones the perfect gifts. Truly, I have little advice to give. I’ve barely begun my shopping, and am still obsessing over just the right little package for the new girlfriend’s first Xmas as well as the perfect balance for the ex, whom I still cherish as well. I can offer you three things, however.

The first is a holiday reading guide for all the nerdy queers on your list courtesy I particularly recommend the David Sedaris. Hes hilarious, it’s holiday themed, and look at how classy that cover is…

The second thing I have for you is the HRC buying guide, out just in time to help you with the holidays. Now, I do not trust the HRC completely, and the first line of the guide intro “Corporate America is leading the way to fairness and equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people…” doesn’t add any faith that the guide is friendly to anyone besides white wealthy queers. That being said, it is a good place to start. And, at the very least, I would avoid those at the very bottom of the list. Keep up to date on the latest queer-friendly and bashy corporations with the continually updated html listing.

But the best bet of all may be to just cut out the corporates all together and checj out Just Out’s own Portland centric guide as well as their last-minute guide.
