The Bilerico Project is a United States LGBT news group blog with dozens of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and genderqueer contributors.

While Bilerico does include shorter news posts, it focuses on longer political commentaries, essays, and cultural examinations.[2]

History[edit source | visual editor]

Bilerico.com (before it became The Bilerico Project) was originally founded in 1998 as the personal website of Bil Browning. It had many incarnations until 2004, when it was redesigned into a blog for the first time. In 2005, bilerico.com was reborn and expanded to become a group blog focusing on Hoosier and LGBT politics and quickly became the premier political blog in Indiana.

In 2007, Browning and his partner, Jerame Davis, teamed up with Alex Blaze to re-brand and re-launch the site with a national focus and call it The Bilerico Project. The site exploded in popularity in 2008 and Bilerico has continued to expand each year.[2]
