NYP: He's running for Congress as a Democrat, and Suraj Patel is not above using fake Grindr and Tinder profiles with which to engage you. Seems like a minor transgression, but LGBT Network's David Kilmnick is enraged, stating:
On the day of NYC Pride, where hundreds of thousands will be brave and courageous coming out as their true authentic selves for being LGBT, Suraj Patel’s actions are unethical and demonstrates he’s out of touch with issues that LGBT people face every day. These dating apps are designed to be safe spaces for LGBT people to meet one another.

GALORE: Violet Chachki covers Galore, talks up her fashion inspirations, whether she wants to be a woman, and all about Moschino:
I never really wanted to look like a woman, I wanted to look like a drag woman. I wanted to look like a drawing of a woman. I’ve always been influenced by fashion illustrators such as Patrick Nagel, René Gruau, and René Bouché. I just always want to look really graphic. It blends into the fetish aesthetic as well as glamour.
