1. Sex or Spouse (www.sexorspouse.com): Are you tired of dating sites filled with people whose intentions are unclear? Well, this site tells you what people can (hopefully) find through its name alone—and it takes just a second to join. (There's also a page for guys who are just looking for friends.) Best of all, this site is free!

2. Gay Black Female Magazine (www.gbfmagazine.com/): After a two-year hiatus, Gay Black Female Magazine is back—and it thankfully has plenty of features. Watch Black lesbian video clips, find out how to submit various items (e.g., poetry), and even read about available internships.

3. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Religious Archives Network (www.lgbtran.org/): If you're looking for practically any information that involves our community and religion, you'll probably find it here. This information clearinghouse features, among other things, a gallery of pioneers and data about an oral history project. (Don't even think about letting your mind near the gutter.)

4. Boris Thomas—Psychotherapy and Consultation (www.your-aspirations.com/home.shtml): The Chicago-based gay African-American therapist offers support regarding everything from interpersonal conflicts to (fittingly) GLBT-related issues. Also, find out why therapy might be for you and read about the background of this former lawyer.

5. Bear Club of Japan (www.st.rim.or.jp/~lonestar/bcj/): The BCJ web site proves that cultures all over the world share certain things—like body hair! Read about the organization (which is based in Tokyo) and look at various pictures of the group. Just try and catch the clips as they fly across the screen.

E. Lynn Harris to Receive Lambda Literary Foundation Bridge Builder Award

If bridge builders connect people, then E. Lynn Harris most definitely is a bridge builder.

When Keith Boykin interviewed E. Lynn Harris for Lambda Book Report in the fall of 1997, his total book sales were approaching a million copies. When Harris' first nonfiction work, his memoir, What Becomes of the Brokenhearted, was released in the summer of 2003 those numbers had climbed to over three million copies sold.

The Lambda Literary Bridge Builder Award will be presented to Harris June 3 at the 16th Annual Lambda Literary Awards gala banquet at the Chicago Mart Plaza hotel in Chicago. Tickets are $125 for the dinner, $175 for the dinner and gala reception.
