Two years after owner and web entrepreneur David Hauslib decided to shutter his (arguably more profitable) celebrity blog Jossip, he announced to contributors over the weekend that he and new partners 353 Media were shutting down Queerty as well. The decision to shut off the site completely -- disappearing, at least for now, half a decade's worth of gay content with pretty high Google rankings -- came as a bit of a surprise to Hauslib, and he said in his letter "in a scenario that began with some technical headaches, has ended with 353 opting not to continue operating the site." What that means for the future of Queerty is unclear, and that content archive is likely up for grabs if anyone wants it -- but we will say that a few years of aping Towleroad and the Sadvocate and posting about a million and one pics of rainbow flags and semi-erect swimsuit models does not exactly a rich archive make. But whatever. They did update daily, which is more than we can say for ourselves -- but, you see, we have day jobs, and without gay marriage minutia to breathlessly track every hour, Queerty would have had trouble finding much *interesting* bits of random faggotry to cover every day too. Now that they have left this void, perhaps we will try harder. Soldier on, gays.
