The Bully Bloggers are a queer word art group. We write about everything queer, so, pretty much everything. Politics, culture, etiquette, vampires, cartoons, the news, philosophy, utopia and revolution. This blog is our Bully Pulpit; we preach to the converted, the unconverted and the indifferent. We are very serious, but in a silly sort of way. We will be posting on topics that change weekly (approximately). Please send us commentaries about any of our posted topics, and we will post them if approved! Though we’re delighted with debate and disagreement, we will not post comments that are merely insulting. We are at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And we are:
