Emory’s gay cruising site hits 100 members

imageSo how’s that new Manhunt-like site from Emory going? Some 100 students, staff and alumni have signed up, baring their all – no, not in quite that way – for others to see. The Many. The Proud. The Emory Gays.

We first told you back in August about the school’s Office of LGBT Life creating Out on Campus to increase the visibility of its queers. Apparently, there were still folks on campus unaware of its five-star gay-friendliness.

So they did what many gays do – hit the internet. With photos. And profiles. Some stuffy campus gays bristled at our description of the new effort as Manhunt-esque and they were right. You can’t unlock private pics and message others cruising them.

But you can do this: scroll through the 100 photos already posted. We figured it wouldn’t take long to populate the site. Here’s what we found: Profiles as diverse as you would expect from this progressive campus.

There’s a lesbian law professor, a same gender loving frat house director (Where can we apply to be his assistant?), a bisexual political science student, a queer female anthropology student, a gay alum and a bisexual genderqueer biology student. There’s even a flaming queermosexual.

The photos range from stuffy portraits to ones with their kids to others you’d find in the G-rated section of an online cruising profile – we’re talking to you Ben Archer, Chris Saden and Conrad Honicker. No one went all Anthony Weiner for this project, though some could use a few tips on the dos and don’ts of online profile pics.

Among the players are several notables in Atlanta’s LGBT circles, including Josh Noblitt, Matt Garrett, Jason Schneider and Kathleen Womack.

Not on there yet? You can still take part. And even if you’re not part of the Emory family, you can still enjoy. We did.
