It did stir the heart to see Frank there. (Kameny, not Barney). Imagine what that must have meant to him viewed through the lens of where he started.

41 is not that old.

I supported Obama and don't regret the vote one iota. But I don't see why we or our community's leaders need to fall over themselves defending Obama on inaction and contrary action (the DOMA brief). I understand why Joe Solmonese was there for the signing but don't understand why he was defending Obama on Olbermann afterwords.

About Sean Bugg

  • I’m the co-publisher of Metro Weekly, Washington, DC’s biggest and best gay and lesbian publication. Over the course of my 40-something years, I've been a good little golden boy, a sub-Ivy-League college grad, an annoying activist, a very active party boy, a humorist and a journalist -- if those last two have any distinction. In addition to the magazine, I’m a freelance writer, car reviewer, book addict, gamer, amateur tennis player and reasonably successful husband. I have my hands full.
