But said acceptance has arrived only […]

D’entre Les Morts

BY DAVID EHRENSTEIN | I’ve been thinking a lot about death lately. Hardly surprising as I turned 70 this past February. But my health is good and my spirits high, so I’ve probably got a reasonable amount of time ahead of me before the End Credits roll. But that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about […]

Countess Dracula

BY DAVID NOH | “Gay Gotham: Art and Underground Culture in New York,” a new exhibit at the Museum for the City of New York, is a terrific survey of a variety of queer subcultures and personalities that once made our now malled-over city so vibrantly the center of the gay universe, and not just […]

Kick Out the Jams  

Kick Out the Jams  

BY MICK MEENAN | Like a tightening tourniquet, a racial color line crosses the Bronx in the 1960s, whites to the north, African Americans and Latinos to the south. A pudgy, headstrong Jewish kid with long hair, a pixie smile, and Talmudic expertise with rock lyrics mans a picket line. Emmett Till’s mutilated face sticks in […]

Gay Style: Dominant and Enduring

Gay Style: Dominant and Enduring

BY DAVID NOH | The fact that gays, lesbians, and bisexuals have long ranked as the greatest designers in fashion history is, of course, no surprise to anyone. What is surprising is how long it has taken any museum to give them their full, out, and proud due. This oversight has happily been gloriously addressed with […]
