REMEMBERING HERB COHEN

January 24, 2014 To the Editor: What a kind and generous friend (“Herb Cohen, Physician and Activist, Dies at 89,” by Andy Humm, Jan. 22). His legacy will endure. Larry Lincoln   January 23, 2014 To the Editor: He was a wonderful person and will be missed. Susan Cowell   WRITE US! Please send letters […]

A RESET ON HEALTH

January 22, 2014 To the Editor: I’m pretty certain that Dr. Mary Bassett will be an improvement over Farley (“Conversant on AIDS, New Health Commissioner Not Known Among Advocates,” by Duncan Osborne, Jan. 22). She apparently understands concepts like “the social determinants of health,” which Farley pooh-poohed. “Just do what we, the docs, tell you” […]

OKLAHOMA’S (GETTING) OK

January 20, 2014 To the Editor: Living in Oklahoma I see this as a giant victory, even bigger than one would think since Oklahoma is probably the reddest state in the union (“Oklahoma Marriage Ban Thrown Out, But Ruling Stayed Pending Appeal,” by Arthur S. Leonard, posted online, Jan. 14). I hope the appeal is […]

THE WORLD’S RESPONSIBILITY IN NIGERIA

January 18, 2014 To the Editor: The international gay community must rally around the Nigerian LGBT community –– their governments, senators, congressmen –– to pressure the Nigerian government to repeal this obnoxious anti-gay law (“As Nigeria’s New Anti-Gay Law Approved Dozens of Arrests Reported,” by Paul Schindler, posted online, Jan. 14). Chukudi Obi WRITE US! […]

THE ROAD AHEAD

January 16, 2014 To the Editor: Neat head for the article and upbeat about prospects (“A New Mayor and Great Expectations,” by Paul Schindler, Jan. 8). The new administration is a refreshing change from days of old. Particularly encouraging is the mayor and staff coming out before the reporters and cameras to talk directly to […]

LYNN STEWART & LGBT RIGHTS

January 13, 2014 To the Editor: Susie Day’s Perspective (Jan. 8) discusses Lynne Stewart, a straight lawyer who defended unpopular causes and was jailed for years, and asks, “Should Queers Care?” In fact, decades ago, Lynne Stewart did stick her neck out for LGBT activists when few others dared to do so –– and was […]

DO YOUR JOB

January 15, 2014 To the Editor: At the end of the day this lady is paid to do a job, and that job should come above her religious beliefs (“Upstate NY Town Clerk Continues Granting Only Opposite-Sex Marriage Licenses,” by Duncan Osborne, posted online Jan. 3). If she is not happy for a job to […]

ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL

January 15, 2014 To the Editor: I was surprised when Corey Johnson introduced Jeffrey Le Francois at our Community Board 4 general meeting last Monday because I too assumed R.J. Jordan was already settled in as chief of staff (“In Johnson’s Council Office, Le Francois In, Jordan Out,” by Lincoln Anderson, Jan. 8). It looks […]

DEBATING BLOOMBERG’S HEALTH COMMISSIONER

January 6, 2014 To the Editor: I attended the World AIDS Day Breakfast and I spoke with Commissioner Farley in regards to his plans for HIV/AIDS (“AIDS Activists Demand New Health Commissioner,”  by Duncan Osborne, Jan. 8). He mentioned he was going to unveil a campaign which would be resourceful to anyone seeking info on […]

HOUSING RIGHTS AND WRONGS

January 13, 2014 To the Editor: I fully support James W. Lister in seeking assistance so as not to pay more than 30 percent of his income in rent (“With New Mayor on Board, Time for Governor to Lead on AIDS Housing,” Jan. 8). Mr. Lister has had AIDS for several years, is disabled and […]
