There’s a very interesting piece about the future of gay cultural icons in the new issue of The Advocate.
I mean, it’s conceivable that I’m letting the fact that I wrote it influence my judgment unfairly, but still.
It’s incredibly nice to have some of my own sentiments reaffirmed in published form. It’s intriguing how a mere few years can make all the difference in the world in terms of cultural awareness. Makes one feel aeons older, doesn’t it?
I’ll gladly pay that price for less gay teen suicides and homelessness and the many, many chances to make those ignorant kids feel really stupid.
I didn’t know about her until I looked her up on Wiki. But then, I can be forgiven as I’m from the third world! 😉
Joel, I’m so proud of you!
Did I know you were 35?
As a gay man who just wrote an article about losing old gay culture, surely you’re aware that a lady never tells her age.
Unless you DID know, in which case, how old ARE you, you hag?
What is that word confirmation we have to use again?
Also–congratulations on the review in the new Gay and Lesbian review. And how lovely that it was written by David.
No. No. I don’t think you are biased at all: it WAS a very interesting piece!
It is a nice reflective piece> I once used to cringe at all the old folk in the mid 70’s talking about how unaware we “kids” were of our gay history. I suppose each generation has the same gripes. It makes for cute old codgers.
