      “Take part in the LGBT event”? What is he talking about? It’s like he read every third word or something.

      I hope someone is looking into where these two have money invested. I’m not directly implying they have money invested in Russia or anything, just merely stating that’s a great reason to abandon our community.

      It’s the same reason that Jodie Foster defends Mel Gibson, or Why Whoopie Goldberg defends Polanski.

      The rich, or famous, or Rich and Famous consider THAT to be their primary label, anything else comes second. It’s why Paula Dean wouldn’t have dark skinned blacks serve in her restaurant but she’ll sure as hell sit on Oprah’s couch and make nice-nice.

      Does anyone know of a link to the Times photo of the three boys?

      Why does the title take a quote from Greg Sutphin and attribute it to his boyfriend Dan Cochran? Why is there even a picture of Dan Cochran to begin with when he’s not an actor in the reported events?

      Yes, none of this is about Cochran – the letter was to Sutphin, the text was from Sutphin. All you can legitimately say at this point is that Cochran’s partner, Sutphin, is a jackass.

      To be clear…a look at the Met’s website shows that Dan Cochran is one of 50 members of their “Advisory Board” not one of the 30 “Members” of the Board of Directors or the 41 “Managing Directors” who really seem to run things.

      There is no evidence in this article that Dan or Greg do not acknowledge homophobia in Russia only that they do not wish to engage the Met in responding to it. Agree or disagree with their position, Queerty should report this more accurately.

      Ironic considering that James Levine, the genius and musical titan who made the MET what it is, is gay. This is exactly why Beethoven despised the aristocracy: they usually sponsor the arts to the extent that it aggrandizes their egos. So many (though certainly not all) of these “board members” and honorary bureaucrats can’t tell their ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to opera, yet they are the ones calling the shots.

      Also, minor quibble: the phrase “the late” refers to someone recently deceased, not someone who has been pushing daisies since the Romanovs ruled Russia.
