Hello! I'm Steve, the Mayor and Founding Father of GayCityUSA.com. I currently live in a small town, but I miss the city and the 'gay lifestyle' so I created a cyber-city where I can be as gay as I want! The purpose of this site is to inform, to entertain, to help, to have fun! I personally approve each link and try to recommend sites that are of high quality and without membership requirements or pop-ups. I work hard to make your surfing experience as easy and as relevant and interesting as I can.
