It's amazing how forgotten this is...

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.”

Melissa-Etheridge

Melissa Etheridge stopped by Larry King Now to talk about the music biz, President Obama, marijuana legalization and more.

Oh, and did you know she has a duet with Queen Latifah on her new album?

“It was so much fun! Any genre, anything—just come knock on my door, I'll sing with you. I love playing in other people's sandboxes.”

Watch the clip after the jump...

Another video in support of the fascinating-sounding documentary Free for All (donate here!) has been released, this one detailing the case of John Perkyns, a homophobe who took to slashing and defacing gay-themed books at a San Francisco library.

Gay-book-hate-crime

As you'll see in the video, the books were then provided to artists internationally, who turned them into pretty amazing art pieces—check the gallery for a few spectacular examples. What an inspiring way to turn things around...

Boy-Culture

A Twitter pal pointed out that this new sex column by a hustler reminds him of the voice of X in my novel Boy Culture...and I agree! Sounds like it'll be quite a ride.
