NYFF Does Better By Women

NYFF Does Better By Women

BY STEVE ERICKSON | Did someone at the New York Film Festival take a look at my article on last year’s festival, which complained about its lack of diversity? While female directors are still far from parity in the festival’s Main Slate, their numbers have increased. Most notably, the festival’s opening night film is Ava DuVernay’s […]

A Dazzling Rainbow on a Brooklyn Labor Day

PHOTO ESSAY BY DONNA ACETO | In an annual Labor Day event probably only rivaled in New York by the June LGBT Pride March, as many as two million people turn out on East Parkway in Crown Heights for the West Indian American Day Carnival Parade. This year, the crowd included Governor Andrew Cuomo and City […]

Museum Hours

Museum Hours

BY DAVID EHRENSTEIN | “Everyone chooses to remember what they want to remember,” Mark Jacobson observes in his New York magazine piece “What Everyone Gets Wrong About ‘70s New York” late last year about one of the “few times in recent New York history [that] have been so longed for, so endlessly discussed.” This longing, so […]

Gay and Disabled in an Ableist, Heteronormative World

BY JOSEPH A. LOGIUDICE | I always felt different as a child. It was not until adulthood that I realized why: I am gay and disabled. I talk often about being an LGBTQ person, but rarely will you hear me talk openly about my learning disability. I sat through many years of psychoeducational testing in New […]

Milo Yiannopoulos Is a Bore

BY ED SIKOV | I’m embarrassed to devote column inches to Milo Yiannopoulos, the racist gay tech editor for Breitbart.com. But he’s been in the news lately and this is a media column and, well, I feel a certain obligation. In case you’ve somehow managed to avoid encountering his entirely predictable attention-grabbing stunts, Yiannopoulos is a […]

Stepping Up to Prostate Cancer Surgery

Stepping Up to Prostate Cancer Surgery

BY PERRY BRASS | I woke up at 1:30 in the afternoon on Tuesday, June 14, in a recovery ward in Mt. Sinai Uptown. My robotic-assisted, laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, performed by Dr. Ash Tewari, had begun at 7:30 a.m., and six hours later, I felt fine, even if a little groggy, still enveloped in anesthesia and […]

At Flame Con 2, Geeks Show in Brooklyn

At Flame Con 2, Geeks Show in Brooklyn

BY CHRISTOPHER MURRAY | “As a queer trans girl with an asymmetrical haircut, I can’t help but stick out in the average convention hall, even among people cosplaying mutants with blue skin,” a blogger posted this week on the geek site themarysue.com. Bet she felt right at home at Brooklyn’s Flame Con 2, held August […]

The Fierce Assault on Philanthropy

BY GINA QUATTROCHI | I don’t know much about the Clinton Foundation. My knowledge is limited to what I read online. I do not seem to be alone. Two weeks ago the Trump camp broke what Trump calls “the biggest political scandal of our time” referring to alleged illegal dealings by the foundation. As public memory […]

Star Treatment for Movies’ Greatest Costumer

Star Treatment for Movies’ Greatest Costumer

BY DAVID NOH | When asked who was the greatest movie costume designer, some aficionados might pump for the multi-Oscared Edith Head, who used ambition and political maneuvering to drive an astonishingly long career — despite a talent that was mostly just okay. Or it could be Cecil Beaton who, if he had only done […]
