Jeffrey Not Laughing With Brandon Voss

Fashion forward Jeffrey Kalinsky does not appreciate journo Brandon Voss’ P.O.V.

Kalinsky, who owns the Jeffrey retail chain, sat down with Voss to discuss “Fashion Cares,” an annual fund raiser benefiting GMHC, Lambda Legal and the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which Voss describes as “one of the hottest parties of the year.” Jeffrey’s not amused, and quickly corrects Mr. Voss, “I don’t see it that way, I guess… It’s a charity event trying to raise money for some really great causes.” Me-ow!

Things get even stickier when Voss veers off topic to wonder whether Jeffrey’s customers are largely lavender, but Kalinsky refuses to engage: “I don’t approach life like that.” Bless foolish Voss, for he kept going back for me more, describing Kalinsky as “politically correct,” which garnered this tart, surprisingly philosophical retort: “No, I’m just being honest with you. Just because I’m gay, I can’t make my answers gay if they’re not gay.”
