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.

Full disclosure: I'm straight

Civil rights do take a while. By no means should you be happy, silent, or even understanding. African-Americans weren't, but their gains did happen incrementally. They spoke out hard-line, and worked with governments behind the scenes. That is what is going on. The wheels move slow, but I think real change on these issues are coming. Ending "don't ask, don't tell" and DOMA would be huge.

I wonder if Martin Luther King Jr. stressed incrimental steps for civil liberties on the Lincoln Memorial steps not so long ago?
