I really love it when The Gays play house. It’s why I’m really excited for Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge’s The Fabulous Beekman Boys. And it’s why I’m thrilled to hear do-gooding gay QuarkXPress creator Tim Gill — of the kick ass Fight Back NY — and husband Scott Miller are buying the Phipps Mansion from the University of Denver. And not just to throw fancy parties (the university already uses it for that), but to live in. Together!
At 33,123 square feet, it’s a lot of house. And they’ve already got big renovation plans (new kitchen!) for the 80-year-old estate, which they paid around $9 million for, or 5.55 percent of what the Gill Foundation has handed out to non-profits since its 1994 creation.
(Oh, and apparently this was frontpage news?)
