Check out Hornet's special features:
Hornet's main website looks like an online magazine with official news and entertainment articles. Though they have an in-house editorial staff, some of these articles and stories are actually submitted by Hornet members themselves. Anyone can apply to be a community writer and submit "witty, heartfelt, and outrageous stories or experiences". In addition to the written word, members can also submit pictures and videos. Before submitting your story, you have to pitch it to Hornet by posting a brief description in their Stories Discussion forum. They can then decide whether it's right for the website or not.

These are listed areas near your location by LGBT men for LGBT men. Places include testing centers, gyms, spas, dive bars, underground piano bars, disco clubs, and more.
