OUTCYCLOPEDIA IS SHUTTING DOWN! - After over four years of maintaining this site, I have decided to close Outcyclopedia and donate its articles to Wikipedia, which has a large and admirable collection of gay-related articles. By June of this year, when my paid status with 0catch.com has expired, I expect the last article to be transferred to Wikipedia, and will close this site down for good. I simply no longer have the time or enthusiasm I once had for this project. I thank everyone who has visited, contributed to, and supported this site over the years. - James Moore, webmaster and founder
