ENDING AIDS

March 26, 2014 To the Editor: Let’s be clear: there is no “END OF AIDS” until there’s a CURE FOR AIDS (“Do We Already Have the Tools to End AIDS?,” by Duncan Osborne, Mar. 19). Your article begins, “Leading AIDS groups are pressing an ambitious plan…” Really?! Not if they’ve got anyone on their boards […]

HEPATITIS C IS A GAY ISSUE

March 4, 2014 To the Editor: I have been battling for 15 years to make testing for hepatitis C for sexually active gay men more accessible and more routine. (“City Council Bill Seeks Annual Health Department Report on Hepatitis B and C,” by Sam Spokony, posted online Feb. 28). Resistance to this remains strong. I […]

RESPONDING TO AFRICAN HATE LAWS

March 11, 2014 To the Editor: I am really disappointed I didn’t hear anything about this protest in advance (“New Yorkers Join Global Protests Against Nigerian, Ugandan Anti-Gay Laws,” by Duncan Osborne, Mar. 5). This issue really concerns me. I would have joined and brought activist friends. I thought I was well connected via emails […]

LOST IN THE SWIM OF DETAILS

LOST IN THE SWIM OF DETAILS

March 13, 2014 To the Editor: Thanks for including me in the recent profiles of New Yorkers going to the Gay Games in Cleveland this August (“New York’s LGBT Athletes Rev Up for Gay Games 9,” by Paul Schindler, Mar. 5). Feedback from friends and teammates has been gratifying. During my interview, I fired off […]

JIMMY FRANCO AIN’T PRETTY

March 7, 2014 To the Editor: James Franco is slumming –– and as they say on “Looking,” “It’s not pretty” (“Deconstructing ‘Cruising,’” by Gary M. Kramer, Mar. 5). But then neither was “Cruising.” There was no “New Gay Cinema” back when it was made, and actors in Hollywood were firmly locked in the closet. William […]

FREE SPEECH OR FREE PASS?

February 8, 2014 To the Editor: I agree and hope that the City Council could hold hearings on the premise that city uniforms should only be worn in parades that support city laws (“In St. Pat’s Dispute, Free Speech is Not the Issue,” by Paul Schindler, Mar. 5). This may help transform things for the […]

THIS “SUCKS”

February 16, 2014 To the Editor: It was dismaying to see the word “sucks” used by Gay City News in its pejorative sense, as it was in the headline above David Noh’s delightful column on character actresses (“Character Actresses: Golden, Simard, York, and Harris on why being a leading lady sucks,” Gay City News, Feb. […]

DON’T BE DIVERTED

February 7, 2014 To the Editor: What an ignorant and repulsive piece of journalism (“Critics Worry Marriage Fight Diverting Community Energy,” by Duncan Osborne, Feb. 5). Marriage equality opens up a hugely important life option for all LGBs. It can positively impact everything from mental and emotional health to income, to the prospects for home […]

FREEDOM OF SPEECH, IN UNIFORM

February 8, 2014 To the Editor: The issue of “freedom of speech” for uniformed police and firemen is more complex than for other citizens (“Barely Taking a Breath, de Blasio Says ‘Nyet,’” by Paul Schindler, Feb. 5) Their right to “protected speech” is limited to speech that does NOT interfere with the harmonious functioning of […]

SIGN ME UP

February 5, 2014 To the Editor: I agree and would add my name to the list (“LGBTQ Leaders, Allies Call on Mayor to Ban Uniformed City Personnel in Discriminatory St. Pat’s Parade,” Open Letter, posted online Feb. 3). What is also of historical interest is that though the Salute to Israel Parade also would not […]
