Cool GLBT Resources
- Codey’s World ...one boy’s dream. A friendly website with stories and poetry. Codey began the site with Blue in August 2006. Now owned by Tim (Codey’s surviving partner) and run by Colin Kelly. Ben Whisman volunteered there as Blue, web admin and editor from August 2006 to January 2010. He stepped down due to ongoing disagreements with Tim, Codey’s surviving partner. Regrettably, the situation there has not improved, and Ben can no longer recommend the site. It is included here due to an extensive past body of work.
