Metro Weekly Named ‘Best Local Gay News Outlet’ By Gay Hookup App

It’s an award that might be best held at arms length, but Metro Weekly was named D.C.’s “best local gay news outlet” by the smartphone application Grindr yesterday.

Grindr is a type of GPS for gay and bisexual men, notoriously known as a tool for those who want sex at the drop of a leather hat.

“If Grindr members in the D.C. area think Metro Weekly is the best local source for gay news, I’m perfectly happy to say ‘Thanks!’ in return,” Metro Weekly publisher Sean Bugg told FishbowlDC. “Having my magazine read by sexually active gay men who look for boyfriends and hookups — and chats! sometimes we’re on just for chat! — is a plus, not a negative.”

Positive news to be proud of, for sure.

“I also enjoy being read by sexually active lesbians,” Bugg added. “Should they give us an award, too, I’d be happy to accept it.”

The Grossest Thing You’ll Read Today

The newest feature in the Fishbowl is one that might be a little hard to stomach. It’s not like we ENJOY looking for gross stuff to talk about, but some people can’t help but tweet nasty stuff. People who repeatedly tweet pictures of their meals are already obnoxious. But, Metro Weekly publisher Randy Shulman took it one ugly step further, and for that, we’re grateful.

On Tuesday, he tweeted directly at McDonald’s to show them his lunch. I believe that if you buy your lunch at McDonald’s, you’re asking for trouble. The last time I ate that shit, I was on a road trip and had no other option. The burger tasted like wax and medicine and I have no sympathy for anyone who gets a bad meal there.

What did Shulman order? Read more
