Quinto

Zachary Quinto has written a personal response regarding the backlash his Out Magazine comments on PrEP and HIV received. I don't see what the uproar is about—it's as if being cautious and measured and thoughtful is the new sin.

Persecution Cumplex: Is There Really A Truvada Backlash? Comments (0)

Truvada

I find parts of this Truvada video infuriating, but not for the reasons the makers think. It's supposed to cover (albeit in the space of a couple of minutes) the concept that Truvada, the drug you should really know about by now (most gay men I encountered still hadn't heard of it as recently as a year ago), and its backlash.

The introductory paragraph above the video states that Truvada is being called a party drug , but I've only ever seen it called that by a couple of very vocal critics.

I actually think the bulk of the alleged backlash is imaginary.

When I moved to NYC 22 years ago, I came to work as an editorial assistant at St. Martin's Press. I worked for Gordon Van Gelder (who edited science fiction and pop culture books) and the late MichaelDennenyLinda O'Brien (who was a manager of the “grid,” the list of all the company's hundreds of titles). Linda was close to SMP's longtime gay-interest editor Michael Denneny, whose Stonewall Inn Editions imprint published many of the most popular and respected gay books of the '70s and '80s, so I was able to speak with him and even attended a party at his apartment. (As a young gay guy, I will never forget that he proudly had a picture of porn actor Steve Fox on his fridge.)

Michael was someone we looked up to as a pioneer and as a cerebral man whose taste was both literary and commercial. He had to fight to publish books he knew would sell a few thousand copies, and would balance that with books he knew would sell many times that—yet he usually had to fight to publish those as well.

I was so disappointed when, while still working at SMP, my gay novel Boy Culture was not deemed fit to be a part of Stonewall Inn (not by Michael). I still own a lot of the free books that came from Michael's office, a den of literacy and iniquity, not to mention my Divine paper doll book that he published.

Denneny just granted the Lambda Literary Review a long interview. In it, he talks about the state of gay writing today by noting its past:

“[T]he assimilationist wave has been dominant for the last decade, balancing the first decade (the ’70s) dominated by the liberationists–the middle two decades essentially devoted to the fight against AIDS. I suspect these two poles of the culture will always be with us. Which is the right strategy depends on the historical moment. We’ll see what emerges.”

Have A TERRIFIC Christmas, Baby! Comments (0)

This is a real thing: Glen Hanson, the talented illustrator and artist, has designed a Liza Minnelli Liza-Minnelli-ornamentholiday ornament that fights HIV. Not literally, but if you buy it, the $ goes to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

This is the latest in a series of Broadway Legends, the others being Julie Andrews, Carol Channing, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera and Gwen Verdon.

Quoth Minnelli:

“I’m simply delighted and so honored to be immortalized with such a wonderfully crafted ornament. I'm especially proud to help support Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, an organization that has been very dear to my heart for more than two decades.”

I had a nightmare I found Liza hanging from my Christmas tree once, so this brings things full circle with a happy ending!
