Diquan McWilliams's curator insight, August 18, 6:21 PM
This source seems very legit, it has a writer and different official links on the page. It doesn’t chooses sides and seems to go perfectly with the story line . The source has links to his official site , I’m not exactly sure if that’s showing that it has some type of relation with Brody Ray. I wouldn’t say this website is a major information resource because it’s call I Love Gay so I would think it’s made for Gay people and would be slightly bias in different circumstances.
