Queer Resources

milkboys Blog, Links 5 Comments

I’d like to collect a list of resources (hotlines, websites,  youth centres, shelters etc.) for queer people. I’m especially (but not only) interested in resources for specific groups (e.g. for queer people of colour, for transgender youth and so on). I’d also love to collect resources for as many different countries as possible.

So if you know any phone number, website or place that might be useful for such a list please leave a comment below. Thanks! <3

Here we go. I’m in the process of setting up a Patreon page for milkboys. It will let people who can afford & are willing to support the site donate on a monthly basis. $1, $10… whatever works for you.

Patreon lets you create different donation tiers with varying rewards for the donors. For example: When you donate $2/month you get a link to a site of your choice (e.g. your Tumblr) on milkboys, for $5/month you get a nudie of me and maybe for $50 you get all that plus a milkboys shirt on top. Stuff like that. I’m still trying to figure out what good rewards would look like so please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Last but not least thanks to the generous folks who brought the site back. Everyone who donated before will get access to the rewards as well of course, more about that later.

*just kidding about the nudie ;)

Chat & Gallery

milkboys Official 1 Comment

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 :)

Likes, Discussions & Nudity

milkboys Blog 31 Comments

Due to popular demand the like feature for blog posts is back so don’t forget to check the last couple of posts and like stuff so we know what to post more of! I didn’t think people cared about it that much but quite a few of you asked for its return so here we go. I guess it’s neat to be able to give feedback without having to leave a comment.

Which brings us to our next point: Someone asked why nested comments don’t have a reply button. That’s because the comments are supposed to let you share your opinion or insight about a post, not to have lengthy discussions ;) For the latter we’ll have the forums ready very soon (thanks to AGmilky & the mod team who are setting it up right now).

And last but not least: it was really helpful to read all your feedback regarding  nudity on the blog. How do you feel about this compromise: When a picture is just artistic, not-in-your-face nudity without any sexual context we’ll leave it be but when it’s porn, boners or sexually suggestive stuff we’ll make it click-through. Is that something you could agree with?
