My cover story interview with Rachel Maddow in Pride09 Magazine is stacked ass-high right now in the homo hoods of NYC and SF and has been out elsewhere for a couple of weeks. Pick up a copy of Pride09 in your favorite club, bar, gym, restaurant, whatever….and enjoy some great editorial features, including an in-depth examination of the plight of gay Arabs in Iraq, the state of the vanishing gayborhood, and an evaluation of Obama’s performance on LGBT rights by Karen Ocamb. (She gives him a “D”.)
Other features include a profile of activist/author Vito Russo, a look at up and coming gay artists, and a great piece on queer cartoonists by Justin Hall. And in case you won’t be in Gay Town this weekend, here’s a nifty page-turner thingy for reading the entire mag online. Next week I’ll pull out some of what Rachel had to say to me and post it here.
NOTE: Pride09 Magazine is published in agreement with InterPride, the national governing body of gay Pride committees, and covers LGBT stories from around the nation. Make sure you also pick up your local guide to gay Pride for important information about your city: parade routes, performers, grand marshals, etc.
