Filled with GLEE – LGBT social networking site

Today's PG gave me the heads up on a new social networking phenomenon, GLEE – Gay, Lesbian & Everyone Else.  I have a little MySpace page which I rarely use.  I also have a Facebook page that has proven more useful in reconnecting with old friends and a lot easier to use.  Then, there is Linked In, a professional networking site.  That one is pretty innocuous. 

Overall, the sites aren't all that and a bag of chips.  Facebook is my preferred social networking site.  I've found a few friends from both high school and college, plus I can keep up with my brother and his family.

None of the sites are particularly connected to my gay identity.  The relationship options offered by Facebook default to heteronormative standards — that kind of sucks.  There are tons of LGBT groups set up on both Facebook and MySpace.  MySpace is more difficult to use and it suits me when I'm a little manic, but not on a day to day basis. 

So I thought GLEE would be worth a whirl.  It is very cumbersome.  I enrolled earlier today and have yet to receive my verification email.  Setting up “my page” was boring.  I scrolled through other profiles of those online from Pittsburgh and it felt very “get a date” like.  None of my actual friends appear to be in the network, but I could be wrong.  So I'll keep my profile up and see what happens.  Check it aht!
