Sullivan wrote and extremely good book in 1995 called Virtually Normal: An Argument About Homosexuality. Loved it. I gave it to my parents to read once I had finished it. He’s confusingly right-wing (and a practicing Catholic!) but he tackles GLBT issues intelligently.
Gay person changes job!!!!!!!!!!!
Stop the presses!!!!!!!!!!!
Indeed. This I’d just not interesting and rather smacks of advertorial.
Oops: For “I’d” read “is”.
This isn’t news.
Has Andrew Sullivan paid Pink News money to promote his new job?
I first started reading his blog in early 2002 (when the ‘Daily Dish’ was an independent entity), since when he has affiliated with a number of publishers; prior to going with the ‘Daily Beast’ he was with ‘The Atlantic’ for a number of years for example & I think with another publisher (I don’t remember which – ‘Time’?) before that.
However, I stopped reading his writings regularly 3 or 4 years ago ( I do very occasionally still dip in, perhaps twice a year), so won’t be signing up to his ‘paid subscription’ model. There are now so many other [more] worthwhile people to read, even if he was one of the first. Whilst I generally share his right-of-centre views, his ignorance on matters relating to the Middle East infuriates me.
I’ve always been a fan of his books, they are all well written. I didn’t always agree with everything he said, but he spelled out why he felt what he did. I also respected the fact that he went from a GW Bush fan to a GW Bush hater after he saw what the Bushies were up to. Not many writers can keep such an open mind, let alone admit that they were wrong.
.Don’t know that I’d pay to read anything on the web though, no matter who was writing it.
For those who love his book Virtually Normal I suggest to read Warner’s The Trouble With Normal. It gives good answers to his “inteligent” dealings with GLBT issues.
If you are a fan of multiculturalism (I’m not) then you will love Warner’s book that tries to dissuade Gay people from the idea of assimilation into the mainstream. It’s a different proposition to Sullivan’s and one that seems to have miscalculated the mood.
He is a rather strange beast but he is cute.
Captain Bareback? Ugh – who knows what diseases he’s swimming with.
