In the spirit of inclusiveness, and to encourage the active exploration of those who seek wisdom and peace from the name of Antinous, below is a list of some of the other communities on the Internet that explicity celebrate his life. It is certainly not exhaustive: if you would like your Antinous site added, please contact me.

Site Description
Ekklesia Antinoou

A Yahoo group that describes itself as follows:

The Ekklesia Antinoou has been established to continue on in the best traditions of the original intent of the core group of Antinoans, who began practicing this religion in the summer of 2002. The Ekklesia Antinoou ("Citizenry of Antinous") is a queer, Graeco-Roman-Egyptian syncretist reconstructionist polytheist form of mystical religion. The present group is the forum for discussion of issues, whether of worship or theology, myth or meditation, surrounding the worship of Antinous, the Divinized Boy of Bithynia, his historical cult and continuing scholarship about it, and his relevance to queer people in particular. Any who wish to discuss Antinous are welcome, whether in his ancient historical or mythological forms, or in more modern spiritual and scholarly appearances and possibilities. Discussion of ancient archaeology and textual studies, as well as modern culture, art, and gay politics and religious issues, are also welcome, but a statement of context must be given to highlight the relevance of each non-Antinoian-related topic proposed. True democratic process will be used at all points in discussion of issues and decisions on practice, and diplomacy and scholarly discipline should be observed whenever possible. No personal notes here, no spammers, no missionizing/proselytizing for any faith (including our own!), and no making of truth-claims for one's stated opinions or beliefs, nor statements of exclusive authority on religious matters.

Aedicula Antinoi Phillipus the Doctor's blog contains an online Sanctuary, a library of Ancient and Modern Devotional Texts, a fantastic collection of essays, and many additional resources from an accomplished and prolific scholar. A joy to explore.
The Temple of Antinous A vast and creative site that approaches the deified Antinous from a modern-day, spiritualist standpoint. It is the home of the Ecclesia Antinoi (the foundingYahoo group) and among its expanding library is included a liturgical calendar, a collection of digital and analog artwork concerning the god Antinous, and a hagiography of homosexual saints both ancient and recent.
The Shrine of Antinous Adam Carr's personal shrine to the God Antinous features a small collection of photographs of the various sculptures depicting Antinous.
Phallic Amulets
