  • News & Opinion Editor's Letter

    There have always been good reasons to find yourself at Florent -- the much-loved diner in New York City's meatpacking district that opened in 1985, when the area was still known primarily for sex clubs, tranny hookers, and meat trucks -- but the most compelling reason is that it never closes. I've lost count of the lost nights spent sitting on one of the red vinyl stools at the long countertop racing deadlines to finish a story, while being distracted by the spooling narrative of the night.

  • Truman Says Icky Ideas in Advertising

    As a skate brand, Zoo York doesn't have to play by the rules. They earn street cred with zany antics, guerrilla style advertising and irreverent behavior, but their latest advertising efforts are actually pretty stomach-churning.

    For English-born design duo Rag & Bone, consideration for homegrown American manufacturing and high-quality fabrics has helped propel a seven-year-old denim start-up into one of the most raved-about sportswear lines in the fashion-week circuit.

  • Entertainment From Gulag to Gallery

    In 1962 the police department of Mansfield, Ohio, set up a camera behind a two-way mirror in a local public restroom. The footage they took -- lingering glances at men having sex with other men -- later became evidence in a slew of sodomy trials. Some 45 years later, artist William E. Jones reedited it into a film called Tearoom, currently on view at the Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. 'For a short while,' Jones says, 'in that insalubrious place, these men had a freedom. But they paid dearly for their pleasures.'

  • Entertainment The Bathroom Chronicles

    I was in Houston recently for my cousin's bar mitzvah, held at one of those fairly-conservative-but-seemingly-OK-with-the-gay-thing synagogues. It was a four-hour service, followed by a kosher luncheon. Naturally -- pass the Manischewitz -- I needed to use the bathroom at least twice during the festivities. I suppose I should pause to offer a brief personal history: I use both women's and men's bathrooms -- probably 70% and 30% of the time respectively. Here are a few situations in which I use the women's room:

  • Entertainment Sour (And Good) Times

    Few records have whipped discriminating music fans into a frenzy of anticipation as intensely as Portishead's Third. On April 29, the album interrupts 10 years of silence from the English trio of singer Beth Gibbons, guitarist Adrian Utley, and producer Geoff Barrow. Whereas 1994's Dummy and 1997's Portishead shaped and refined trip-hop -- a genre based on film soundtrack samples and hip-hop rhythms that soon became ubiquitous in movies, cafes, and clothing stores -- Third plummets into even darker experimental rock territory.

    TUBE: Up until the present Gossip Girl has yielded little truly gay content for its huge queer audience (that is, beyond the feisty sass those Upper East Side vixens dish out regularly). But rumor has it that soon -- perhaps this Monday, April 29 -- we will be thrown a bone with a closet departure from a male character. Could it be the dashing Brooklyn boyfriend played by handsome Out cover boy Penn Badgley?

  • Truman Says Breaking News: Workers Strike at Bloomingdale's

    WWD reports that workers at Bloomingdale's 59th Street flagship in NYC may strike and shut down the store for the first time since 1965. Union workers are calling for wage increases and protection of their health care benefits in new contract negotiations that have been ongoing since mid-February.

    The strike would only affect the 59th Street location.
