The Gayest New Yorker Cartoon Ever?

Bill Haefeli Cartoons

Leah Wolchock's intimate documentary, Very Semi-Serious, offers an unprecedented glimpse into the process behind the cartoons.

In light of director Leah Wolchok's new doc, Very Semi-Serious: A Partially Thorough Portrait of New Yorker Cartoonists (which debuts December 14 on HBO), we asked the magazine, which has been running its famous, zeitgeisty cartoons for more than 90 years, to choose what it deemed its all-time gayest.

Cartoon editor Bob Mankoff selected this one from gay staff cartoonist Bill Haefeli, who's been with the magazine since 1998. Says Mankoff, "Bill's cartoon artistry is unsurpassed, as is the comedy of manners, mores, and morals his cartoons delineate for the gay, the straight, and everyone in between. I'm not sure if this one's the gayest. Maybe it's a question for the next Republican debate."
