      I’m glad this guy can get married but he’s a media whore and attention whore.

      @Kurt: I don’t even know how to respond to that, other than to say “what are you even talking about.”

      As long as humanoids have had speech, there’s probably been some dizzy queen grunting about someone else allegedly being a “media whore.” Certainly every gay person whom the media has paid attention to—nota bene, rather than the dizzy queen—has been demonized at one time or another that way, including Harvey Milk when he was alive.

      Even if Mr. Hill were—and I don’t believe he is—WHY would that be a problem as long
      as it was good media attention? Many moons ago, when I first met Frank Kameny, I asked him about the stories going around about a then-new person to the gay activist scene being
      only being involved for personal agrandizement. I have never forgotten Frank’s reply:
      “I’ve heard those stories, too, but as long as he’s helping us I don’t care if they
      are true.”

      BRAVO to both men, and thank you, Matt, for the great interview.
