Accepting Your Age and the Youth Among You

Accepting Your Age and the Youth Among You

BY PERRY BRASS | Several years ago, a gay man, at that time a neighbor of mine, walked into my living room and stopped in front of the coffee table. “You shouldn’t have that out,” Bryan said, pointing to a copy of AARP Magazine. “You can pass for a lot younger person. You have the looks […]

Embracing Our New Age

Embracing Our New Age

BY PERRY BRASS | My father died at the age of 42, when I was 11 years old. I was told he died of “kidney problems.” I was not allowed to visit him in the hospital the last several weeks of his life or to ask questions about him. Questions were completely sidelined by the answer, […]

NYPD Surveillance on Early LGBTQ Activism Bared

BY DUNCAN OSBORNE | As activists were gathering in the West Village in 1970 for the first march to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots that mark the start of the modern LGBTQ rights movement, they were not alone. The NYPD was nearby surreptitiously taking pictures and film of New York City’s first Pride March. Some of […]

At 70: The New “Age”

At 70: The New “Age”

BY PERRY BRASS | On September 15, I turn 70. How could it happen? It’s a question I’ve asked myself for a long time, and when I was younger it seemed so far away that it was unimaginable. 70, that is old. There is no way around it. I have stopped telling myself that I am […]

Invader in the Pleasure Dome: One Year Later

Invader in the Pleasure Dome: One Year Later

BY PERRY BRASS | This month marks a year since Dr. Ash Tewari performed a robotic-assisted, laparoscopic, radical prostatectomy — known as a RALP — on me at Mt. Sinai Hospital uptown. For the first several months after having my prostate removed, I was living in this almost euphoric fool’s paradise believing that I had returned […]

Recovery and Life After Prostate Cancer

Recovery and Life After Prostate Cancer

BY PERRY BRASS | About five days after my June 14 robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy at Mount Sinai Uptown, things changed. My “honeymoon” with the surgery was over. The day after I’d left the hospital, I was popping out of bed, eager to start life again, going on the long recovery walks Dr. Ash Tewari, my […]

Stepping Up to Prostate Cancer Surgery

Stepping Up to Prostate Cancer Surgery

BY PERRY BRASS | I woke up at 1:30 in the afternoon on Tuesday, June 14, in a recovery ward in Mt. Sinai Uptown. My robotic-assisted, laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, performed by Dr. Ash Tewari, had begun at 7:30 a.m., and six hours later, I felt fine, even if a little groggy, still enveloped in anesthesia and […]

An Invader in the Pleasure Dome

An Invader in the Pleasure Dome

BY PERRY BRASS | This past March, I received a call from Dr. Art Rastinehad, the young urologist who had just performed the latest prostate biopsy on me — the fifth done on me over the last decade — informing me I have prostate cancer. Though for years I had faced the possibility of this diagnosis, […]

“Desire,” “Seduction” Get Perry Brass Booted from Facebook 

BY DUNCAN OSBORNE | After first banning one of his books, Facebook has now banned a leading gay author and a longtime activist from the social media site. “They gave me no warning and I have received nothing from them to explain what they have done,” Perry Brass told Gay City News. Brass’ book, “The Manly […]

Mark Segal’s Dance to Equality  

Mark Segal’s Dance to Equality  

BY JASON VICTOR SERINUS | Mark Segal’s memoir, “And Then I Danced: Traveling the Road to LGBT Equality,” has to be one of the most involving, can’t-put-it-down chronicles of the post-Stonewall LGBT movement yet penned. It also provides a remarkable object lesson in about how you can be irrepressibly outspoken and resolute about freedom, yet do […]
