My journalism career began when I founded OutWeek Magazine in 1989 (I had been a musician and producer of live shows before that).
I served as OutWeek's editor-in-chief and co-publisher for two tumultuous years, during which time the brave little magazine forever altered the shape of gay journalism.
After that I became a weekly op-ed columnist for NY Newsday, and began writing for The New York Times, The Nation, The New Scientist, The LA Times, Out, The Advocate, The Village Voice and many other publications too numerous or embarrassing to mention.
I received the GLAAD Media Award as Outstanding Journalist in 1995.
