The Internet offers opportunities for minority groups, not only for anti-gay-minority groups, to create virtual spaces in which their values are considered normative. Consequently, within the spaces of the Internet, gay culture has changed.
Dr. Mowlabocus said that gay identity is now largely a cyber one. Important elements of gay culture are carried by the Internet and other forms of digital communications. There are thousands of sites where gay males can communicate, locally as also internationally. Many of these are specialized in their focus. Some are used for searching out dating relationships (like heterosexuals do). Others serve to bring together those desiring quick anonymous sex.
