Michael Musto writes for Out Magazine: My time spent on social networks has been way more gratifying since I decided to block anyone who’s tried to crawl out from under a rock and chirp about how Trump isn’t really bad to LGBTQs at all. (“After all, everyone said we’d be in death camps, and we’re not” is a typically lame-brained ...

True to form, even getting an honorary Tony Award managed to piss off Larry Kramer. Michael Musto reports for Out Magazine: Downstairs, I found gramps Larry Kramer, who’d been briefly seen receiving a special award for his humanitarian work.

HomoQuotable – Michael Musto

“It’s a shame the ex-NYC mayor never came out. It’s tragic that he hid behind excuses like the fact that he was old and wasn’t sexual at all anymore. Old people are still sexual–and if you’re gay, you’re still gay–and besides, he could have commented on his past. But Ed was so paranoid on the subject that when I interviewed ...

HomoQuotable – Michael Musto

“Just when you assumed gay self-loathing had been deposited in the dead-chicken bins, along comes a new wave of self-flagellation aimed to throw us under the hate truck. At a time when gays have made significant progress and other people are fully available to do all the hating, some gays crazily want to join in! I’m talking about the wave ...

Quote Of The Day – Michael Musto

“Free speech means you can generally say whatever you want without being carted off to prison or otherwise punished by law. But it doesn’t guarantee that there won’t be any repercussions! You can run through the street yelling ‘Blacks shouldn’t be allowed to get married,’ but that doesn’t protect you from people boycotting your store and using their free speech ...

Michael Musto On GOProud

“So a bunch of sef-loathing gays endorses someone who wants to rewrite the Constitution to ban same-sex marriage, and when someone attacks them for it, they insult his looks? And they reduce my career, without even addressing the issue at hand? I was hired as an entertainment columnist in 1984, but expanded that from day one to include gay (and ...

Michael Musto As Donald Trump

From Musto’s year-end recap column: New York became fun again in 2011! Thanks to a global economic meltdown!

Fork On The Left, Knife In The Back

Last night I attended the launch party for gossip legend Michael Musto’s above-titled book, where hundreds of bold-face names collided with hipsters, scenesters, and queensters all vying to get their names into large print.

HomoQuotable – Michael Musto

“Calvin, darling, you’re embarrassing yourself. What’s worse, you’re embarrassing the whole community. You were never really that much of a gay hero in the first place. Remember when you suddenly had a wife because, as AIDS made it uncool to be gay, you took the wussy way out and closeted yourself so you could sell more T shirts and perfume? ...
