The milkboys Patreon campaign is now launched :) Patreon is a way to financially support creators so they can spend more time doing what you,¬†and they, love. In return you’ll get some fun rewards (like access to a special chat, a private blog and much more)!

You can still do one-time donations of course, if you prefer that!

Here’s what I wrote as a little introduction on Patreon:

I founded milkboys when I was a queer teenager myself, frustrated with the lack of online resources available to me and my friends. Most LGBT sites are catering to “gay men”. Not bisexuals or trans teens or even queer allies.

I wanted a site that speaks to everyone on our broad & colourful queer spectrum. A place where you can feel at home, meet people, read about how the society & politics around us are changing and having an impact on our daily lives but also have the option to just look at pretty people for a while without feeling judged.

milkboys in its current form is going into its 9th year now and I’d love to make it grow, more colourful, entertaining and more accessible to people who still have a hard time finding a place online where they can just be.

If you become a patreon of this project you will enable me to spend more time working on milkboys, update the site a lot more often than currently possible and create more original content (photos, videos, articles and so on) and in return will get a look behind the scenes and one or two other little things as a thank you ;) Thank you for your loyalty & incredibly generous support!

I will refine and add more details about the goals and rewards over the coming days! I’ll also try to get as many of the rewards as possible to people who donated before. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!

Let’s have a Chat!

The chat we had so far was very limited in what it offers. Let’s try something new! The new chat has several rooms, voice chat, a mobile app &¬†a desktop client, notifications when your name gets mentioned, picture & link previews and so on and on…

 Enter the new Chat!

The usual rules apply: Be nice to each other, don’t spam, use common sense and keep in mind that we’re not a dating site ;) NSFW pictures & videos are not allowed for now (because it makes moderation a lot harder) but we’ll look into that depending on how the chat evolves.

This is a test run so things might be a bit wonky at times. The old chat is still available if you prefer that.

Chat & Gallery

The chat and the member gallery are both back online. The chat application is pretty basic but a more modern app is already in the works. You need a milkboard account for both.

Since this question comes up fairly often: Yes, you will have to make a new account if you had one on the ‘old’ board (pre-2015), sorry about that. But the signup process takes less than a minute, all we need is a username & password or you can just sign in with your Twitter account.

Besides getting¬†a better chat we’ll hopefully also be able to get a proper visual refresh for the board soon, add a member map and connect the board with the blog so you can use your account for both but I can’t make any promises regarding a timeline because all that stuff costs money. If you have any other ideas or suggestions, please let us know :)
