The Trouble With Andrew Sullivan

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | Andrew Sullivan, who more than a quarter century ago stormed the American intellectual and media ramparts as the British enfant terrible, a self-styled contrarian gay Tory who became editor of The New Republic at 28, is at it again. Writing in New York Magazine last week, Sullivan lamented the “radicalization” of the […]

As Planet Comes to a Boil, Priorities Remain Screwed

BY ED SIKOV | New York Magazine’s cover story, “The Doomed Earth Catalog,” by David Wallace-Wells, may be the single most frightening magazine article I’ve ever read.

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | Throughout the month-plus storm that ensued from a dinner and “fireside chat” for Texas Senator Ted Cruz hosted by Out Hotel owners Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass, the two gay hoteliers repeatedly insisted the event was not a fundraiser, but instead a chance to discuss foreign policy, in particular their concerns […]

Hot PrEP Seeks Same for BB

BY ED SIKOV | Back in the day, meaning the 1980s, New York magazine could always be counted on to produce sloppy, embarrassingly uneducated, heartless, but fortunately blessedly few articles about AIDS and its effects on gay men. The editor-in-chief at the time, Edward Kosner, was much more interested in the inane “Mr. Peepers” society […]
