Elijah Wood Is Very, Very Gay was a parody fansite created in 2002 that poked fun at Domlijah fans who believed that Lord of the Rings actors Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan were in a secret relationship in real life. The website went down some time in 2009-2010.

The site offered parodies of tinhat evidence for Elijah Wood's gayness. The website also contained a few other sections, including links to other fansites, MST fanfic, hate mail received by the webmasters, and a forum. The site also contained a disclaimer (that no one who sent in hate mail apparently read) stating the intent of the site:

This is a parody site. Elijah Wood is not actually gay. Well, he might be, just like anyone might be. The "evidence" presented on this page does not provide any proof whatsoever that he is homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, multisexual, ambisexual, monosexual, ubersexual, antisexual, anthrosexual or whatever. We know absolutely nothing about him or his life, and respect his right to fuck and/or fondle whomever he wants. This site was constructed in response to those who don't seem to feel the same way.[1]

Elijah Wood mentioned it in at least one interview and said he thought it was funny.[2]

The site was most active in 2002-2003. In 2006, the fans running the site posted the following message:

You may wonder why this site isn't updated. Well, that's intentional. This website was a joke. It was very, very funny in 2002 and frankly its makers have kind of gotten over it. That said, there are still a lot of people who visit the site on a daily basis and seem to still take amusement in it and it seems a shame to waste all the free publicity.[3]

In 2016, an anon at Fail_fandomanon remembered it fondly:

The letters section was the best. I loved the email from Elijah Wood's "sister" and the responses.[4]
