editor's letter

I RECENTLY GOT A NOTE FROM a 73-year-old gay man who said that The Advocate magazine had gone someplace really exciting recently, someplace that felt “really unfamiliar and foreign” to him as an older gay white man—but also interesting and “vibrant and hopeful, a world of diversity and freedom” he could have never imagined as a closeted young man. Because most of the criticism I get these days comes from gay men over 50, I’ll admit I was honestly buoyed by the letter. I never want age or gender or race to keep people from seeing themselves in this magazine. We’re trying to include people whom we’ve historically excluded Honestly, the world today is largely unfamiliar to many of us who came out before 2000. We’ve watched the history happen, but…

as the oldest lgbtq magazine in the u.s.,

The Advocate has published at least three generations of amazing writers (including Andrew Sullivan, Tony Kushner, Kate Clinton, Ryan Murphy, Janis Ian, Alison Bechdel, Michelangelo Signorile, and Janet Mock). Former colleagues and interviewees often go on to do great things. Here are some amazing new projects: Lonnie Lusardo, The Advocate’s Northwest correspondent during the mid-1980s, has released The Anatomy of Organized Hate: Stories of Former White Supremacists and America’s Struggle to Understand the Hate Movement, a monumental achievement that could change how we combat hate in America. Lusardo has created a careful inventory of the common types of hate crimes as well as the often myopic and misinformed motivations behind them. The personal stories are compelling, but Lusardo indicts the broader culture, a change in journalistic standards, and political leaders who…

the buck stops here

After seemingly escaping consequences for the overdose deaths of two gay Black men in his West Hollywood apartment, Ed Buck is finally facing charges that could put him behind bars for decades. Buck, a longtime Democratic political activist and donor in Arizona and California, was indicted by a federal grand jury in October and charged with providing drugs that led to the deaths of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean. He was also charged with furnishing drugs in three other instances. The indictment says the 65-year-old white gay man targeted “vulnerable individuals who were destitute, homeless, and/or struggled with drug addiction, in order to exploit the relative wealth and power imbalance between them.” Buck, who was arrested in September, faces additional state-level charges that were filed by Los Angeles County District Attorney…
