Trump Tower’s Troubling Shadow

Trump Tower’s Troubling Shadow

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | Not that it should surprise anyone, but President-elect Donald Trump is off to a disquieting start, one that offers little comfort — other than a few cheap words, “And I mean everyone,” in his YouTube infomercial this week — that he truly aims to unite the entire country. Let’s look at […]

A Stain on Our Democracy

A Stain on Our Democracy

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | As Tuesday evening’s slowly unfolding nightmare began to move into higher gear, my friend Analisa in Chicago posted on Facebook, “Are men really that afraid of women?” And it suddenly hit me. Over the past several years – indeed, through eight years of the right wing’s fanatical hatred of President Barack […]

Gay City News at 15: No Turning Back

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | For the past decade and a half, Gay City News has strived, with every issue, to provide thoughtful, incisive, and comprehensive news and arts coverage for the nation’s largest and most diverse LGBT community. Thankfully, that has turned out to be a huge but also very exciting job. When we launched in […]

Trust in Honest Elections Fundamental to Our Democracy

Trust in Honest Elections Fundamental to Our Democracy

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | The latest dispiriting turn in a toxic presidential campaign has been Republican Donald Trump’s insistence that the results on November 8 may be fatally undermined by widespread voter fraud. He first warned of this peril in late summer when post-convention polls showed Hillary Clinton building a comfortable lead. Telling a small town […]

We’re With Hillary — Let’s Make Sure Swing States Are, Too

We’re With Hillary — Let’s Make  Sure Swing States Are, Too

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | At the risk of belaboring the obvious, it is essential that we elect Hillary Clinton as president on November 8. For all the opportunities that 35 years in public life provide to critics – some who are sincere and justified – Clinton’s candidacy in 2016 offers one of the most progressive visions […]

Phlegmgate, Or Why I’m So Often Embarrassed to Be a Journalist

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | The front page of Monday morning’s New York Post, under the headline “HILL HEALTH CRISIS,” offered up frame captures from video shot the day before showing Hillary Clinton stumbling as she was helped into a van during 9/11 memorial services. By the time the Post produced this cover, we all knew […]

In West Village Assembly Race, Deborah Glick Deserves Reelection

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | In 1990 Deborah Glick made history when she became the first out LGBT elected official in New York State. For the better part of that decade, she and later Tom Duane were the only members of our community at the table when legislators made decisions about our lives. We know from the […]

Trump’s Cynical Talk About Gays & Immigration

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump took a break this week from his daily routine of outrageous unscripted outbursts to make something of a serious — read: teleprompter-assisted — speech, this one about national security. His mission, though, was much the same as with his spontaneous utterings — to stir fear among […]

Above All, Donald Trump Is a Coward: Et Tu, GOP?

Above All, Donald Trump Is a Coward: Et Tu, GOP?

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | Donald Trump is the kind of candidate who is always serving up yet another last straw. For many, it came right at his campaign’s get-go, when he stood in Trump Tower warning that Mexico was not “sending their best,” but instead “rapists.” A year later, he would call into question an […]
