OVAH THE RAINBOW

OVAH THE RAINBOW

April 19, 2012 To the Editor: I agree whole-heartedly with David Kennerley’s review (“A Star Is Burnt,” Apr. 11-24). Having seen “End of the Rainbow” last night, the only jaw-dropping moments were when Ms. Bennett sang, truly channeling Judy with gestures, mannerisms, phrasing –– to say nothing of hair, make-up, and wardrobe. The rest felt […]

LAST WORD ON DHARUN RAVI (FOR NOW)

LAST WORD ON DHARUN RAVI (FOR NOW)

April 17, 2012 To the Editor: The consequences Dharun Ravi are disproportionate to his crime, and I say this with very little sympathy for him (“Was the Rutgers Bully Scapegoated?,” by Paul Schindler, Mar. 28-Apr. 10). It is apparent from his refusal to accept the plea bargain and his lack of any public statement of […]

IMPERIAL CHEER

IMPERIAL CHEER

April 22, 2012 To the Editor: What a fabulous article Winnie McCroy wrote about Night of a Thousand Gowns (“Ritz Kraka, Witti Repartee, So Much More,” Apr. 11-24).Thank you so much! Emperor X Gabriel Della Notte WRITE US! Please address letters to the editor of 250 words or less to: Editor@GayCityNews.com or  515 Canal St., […]

Letters to the Editor

THE CHOICE IS CLEAR December 22, 2011 To the Editor: This election year is a no-brainer for the gay community (“The Stakes in 2012,” by Paul Schindler, Dec. 21-Jan.3). Even if you consider yourself a Republican, you must vote for Obama’s reelection! The alternatives are grim. Obama has disappointed many progressive voters who had hoped […]

Letters to the Editor

WHAT GOOD FOR THE GOOSE. December 22, 2011 To the Editor: I am extremely pleased to see mention of the issues with asylum and refugee treatment within the US (“Administration One-Two Punch for Global Rights,” by Paul Schindler, Dec. 21-Jan. 3). This problem has been absent from reporting and appears to not be a focus […]

Letters to the Editor

GOODBYE, AND GOOD RIDDANCE! December 29, 2011 To the Editor: This screed is as old as the woods (“As For Chelsea, Goodbye to All That,” by Michael Carosone and Joseph LoGiudice, Nov. 9-22). New York City has never been static nor settled in its entire history. Chelsea belongs to white gay male clones as much […]

Letters to the Editor

AN OVERLY HARSH ASSESMENT December 8, 2011 To the Editor: I was extremely pleased to see Gay City News foregrounding the critical issue of funding for LGBTQ organizations (“How Do We Move the 97 Percent?,” by Paul Schindler, Dec. 7-20). Funders for LGBTQ Issues was among the 40 organizations participating in the Movement Advancement Project […]

Letters to the Editor

GIFT HORSE IN A GLASS HALF FULL December 8, 2011 To the Editor: I am not one to look the gift horse in the mouth, however, I am not one of those who’re out there giving Mrs. Clinton a standing ovation either, as many are now, for her recent speech at the UN for LGBT […]

SHIRKING A PUBLIC DUTY

October 5, 2011 To the Editor: I am a resident of Ledyard, New York, where Rose Belforti is refusing to sign same-sex marriage licenses (“Anti-Gay Marriage NY Town Clerk Wangles Extraordinary Accommodation,” by Duncan Osborne, posted online on Sep. 30; updated on page 2W). I went to the September town board meeting and requested, along […]

ST PATRICK’S DAY

March 6, 2008 To the Editor: The New York St. Patrick’s Day still excludes queers – and in fact, the organizers say that the message of their parade is explicitly anti-gay, and religious (“Luck’s Forever Dublin,” by Winnie McCroy, Mar. 6-12). In spite of the city’s anti-discrimination laws, uniformed police, firefighters, and other city officials […]
