Read an Excerpt
"An indispensable tool for Net 'newbies' who may need guidance in the digital domain... could cause information junkies to log on for interminable hours," wrote The Washington Blade
about Gay & Lesbian Online. And the Windy City Times calls it "an indispensable and entertaining guide." Explosive and constantly changing, the World Wide Web is almost unchartable, and all people who try had better know their stuff and be prepared to update regularly.
Fortunately, Jeff Dawson is a man who knows the territory, and in a lively, easy-to-read style, he plays tour guide in this newly updated edition of his best-selling guide, pointing out both new and long-term online resources for AIDS, activism, bears, books, chat rooms, dating, domestic partners, gardening, legal issues, movies, politics, religion and spirituality, sex, television, 'zines, and beyond. The sites visited range from the practical, such as disability advice, to the silly, such as how to wear stiletto heels on formal occasions.
Encyclopedic in scope, this book charts the entire spectrum of gay and lesbian interests as found in the ever-growing digital world of the Internet. Join the exploding queer presence in cyberspace in this user-friendly, incredibly detailed, and enormously entertaining manual for people at all levels of computer skills.
