PARADISE LOST

July 30, 2015 To the Editor: The last bastion has fallen. The two-pronged crackdown on Fire Island — banning nudity on the beach between Cherry Grove and The Pines and ticketing men engaged in sexual activity in the Meat Rack — marks the end of an era. As it is, clothing-optional beaches are an increasing […]

WE’RE HEARING FROM RUBEN DIAZ JR. ON ISRAEL BECAUSE…?

WE’RE HEARING FROM RUBEN DIAZ JR. ON ISRAEL BECAUSE…?

January 22, 2015 To the Editor: Why did Gay City News reprint Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.’s horrendous screed from the Gotham Gazette? (“Why I Am Visiting Israel,” Jan. 22). In which he unqualifiedly sings the praises of occupier Israel without once mentioning the word “Palestinian” — while he’s blithely holidaying there on the […]

EXCLUSION IS THE ISSUE

November 5, 2014 To the Editor: I was disappointed that Duncan Osborne’s article on the exclusion of the executive directors of Gay Men of African Descent (GMAD) and the MOCHA Center from the 63-person task force charged with developing a plan to reduce new HIV infections statewide ended with two sentences that seemed designed to […]

NO SON OF HILLARY

September 8, 2014 To the Editor: I am deeply disappointed at the horrible sexism of Paul Schindler’s editorial “Hillary’s Not Our Mom, And She’s Not Judy Garland” (Sep. 2-17).  The article did not mention any of Clinton’s work in office either as New York’s senator or in the State Department regarding LGBT or HIV issues. No […]

THE MARRIAGE SPRING

April 30, 2014 To the Editor: Excellent analysis of Jo Becker’s book, Duncan (“A Contested Account of the Marriage Spring,” by Duncan Osborne, Apr. 30). Matt Foreman San Francisco WRITE US! Please send letters to the editor, of 250 words or less, to: Editor@GayCityNews.com Or mail them to 515 Canal Street, Suite 1C, New York, […]

A STROKE OF BEAUTY

May 2, 2014 To the Editor: Thanks for this wonderful piece, David Noh — I like your writing a lot (“The Beauty of Men,” Apr. 30). I loved Robert Richard’s commentary about the show — there was actually a lot of glamour in that period of queer life and art, centered on the 1970s and […]

THE TREASURE NAMED CHARLES LUDLAM

April 18, 2014 To the Editor: “Irma Vep” will live forever, but for those of us who saw Charles Ludlam in his prime nothing beats “Camille: A Tearjerker” (“Genre Bender,” by David Kennerley, posted online April 18). I saw it twice, nearly expiring from laughter both times. We lost a giant when Ludlam died. David […]

CLASSICAL MUSIC IN THE HANDS OF CHILDREN

May 2, 2014 To the Editor: This was a great story (“Classical Music Exec Works to Put Instruments in School Kids’ Hands,” by Paul Schindler, Apr. 2). And thanks for taking the time to post the video of Graham Parker’s It Gets Better Message. I found so many interesting things in it. John Ketar WRITE […]

REMEMBERING DOUGIE

April 7, 2014 To the Editor: RIP, Dougie. I loved knowing you (“A Loving Farewell to Doug Ireland,” by Andy Humm, Apr. 2). Tracy Young WRITE US! Please send letters to the editor, of 250 words or less, to: Editor@GayCityNews.com Or mail them to 515 Canal Street, Suite 1C, New York, NY 10013. Gay City […]

ENDING AIDS

March 26, 2014 To the Editor: Let’s be clear: there is no “END OF AIDS” until there’s a CURE FOR AIDS (“Do We Already Have the Tools to End AIDS?,” by Duncan Osborne, Mar. 19). Your article begins, “Leading AIDS groups are pressing an ambitious plan…” Really?! Not if they’ve got anyone on their boards […]
