When The New York Times Came Out of the Closet

If you were born after 1970, I think it is nearly impossible to imagine how it felt to open up The New York Times Magazine on a Sunday morning in January 1971 to discover “What it Means to be a Homosexual,” a deeply personal and beautifully written piece in defense of homosexuality.
Nothing like this had ever been printed in a newspaper like the Times before. I was a junior at Columbia University in the City of New York when the novelist and journalist Merle Miller’s piece appeared, and I had undoubtedly purchased the Sunday Times at a newsstand on Saturday night. But I’m sure I didn’t share my fascination with his article with any of my classmates on Sunday morning.
Things learned watching the 2012 Emmys:
- Julianne Moore can do a lot of things, but no one (I’m talking to you Danes & Bowen) can pull off that neon yellow/green bile color. Especially without a golden tan.
- “Homeland” cannot win enough awards to redeem Showtime from the human stain on their schedule that is “Gigolos .”
- Kerry Washington has a lisp. Who knew?
- I don’t want to live in a world where Kristen Wiig will never receive an Emmy for SNL.
- Thanks to her Snooki poof on steroids hair don’t, Ashley Judd can rest assured her cheeks are no longer the biggest and puffiest thing about her.
- Fans of CBS sitcoms are a lot like Scientologists, you know they are out there but no one has actually met one.
- When Damien Lewis goes missing, Jon Hamm and Michael C. Hall should be the first to be questioned.
- The camera loves Lena Dunham … when the hot guy on “Revenge” is sitting directly behind her.
- “American Horror Story” is a mini-series.
Without movie stars or musicians, the Emmys are generally the most boring of award shows and this year was no different.
Thank God for DVRs.
