VV gay cover

• With the exception or perhaps the New York Times, every publication here in New York is doing a “gay issue” in honor of gay pride. But so far, it’s only the Village Voice‘s edition that got our attention. [VV]

• In other (rather upsetting) media news, local Pennsylvania paper The Morning Call banned columnist Frank Whelan after he appeared as grand marshall of a gay pride parade. The paper’s editor claimed Whelan’s stint showed his support of gay marriage — and we thought columnists were free to be subjective. [Express-Times]

• A gay cowboy at a nude beach? Who cares if the Human Rights Campaign wasn’t behind it — they got some great, ahem, exposure. [BlogActive]

• Holla at our kid sister blog MollyGood, which just landed in the pages of Star magazine. Because just like us, Molly measures her self-worth by press mentions. [MollyGood]

• What is pride to you? [NYC LGBT Center]

MySpace will no longer let anyone over the age of 18 contact a minor — though it has no way of verifying anyone’s age. So 40-year-old daddies looking for 16-year-old twinks need only like about their age, except this time they’ll need to say 17 instead of 30. [AdAge]
