Today is the 20th anniversary of the 1993 March on Washington in D.C. I took the bus down alone, reading an uncorrected galley of the Randy Shilts book Conduct Unbecoming, which I'd gotten from my co-worker Michael Denneny. Denneny is in the news lately for confessing that "Patient Zero" was a made up ploy for publicity for Shilts's And the Band Played On.
Once there, I recall meeting up with friends and being awed by the sheer numbers. I made sure to get a numbered wristband: Mine was #669! I guess I was early.
I remember this image was everywhere:
QUESTION: Who'da thunk it that just 20 years later, gays in the military would be a moot point and we'd be pushing rapidly toward full marriage equality? ANSWER: We thunk it. We did. That day, everything seemed possible. And you know what? It was.

Globe (April 22, 2013) claims that Bill Clinton had an affair with an African woman who later died of AIDS. I guess that would bolster the magazine's not infrequent claims that Bill is all but dead if they could cook up a story that he's been battling HIV without even know it, even though I have no doubt he's been tested at every physical for the past 30 years.
Marco McMillian, the (first-ever) out mayoral candidate from Mississippi, may have been the victim of an anti-gay hate crime. His family released a statement saying:
"We know that Marco was brutally murdered. His body was found on Wednesday, February 26, 2013, beaten, dragged and burned (set afire). This was reported in our meeting with the local coroner on two occasions. We were informed that the official autopsy could take two to four weeks to complete. We feel that this was not a random act of violence based on the condition of the body when it was found. Marco, nor anyone, should have their lives end in this manner."
McMillian had apparently communicated ot his family that he feared for his well-being before his murder. Lawrence Reed, 22, is in custody for the murder. A gay-panic defense may be employed by Reed when he sees his day in court.
Globe (January 21, 2013) really finds the sore spot in the Hillary Clinton story. Classy.
Whenever I'm about to speak with a woman for this blog, I always have a minor panic attack wondering if I should assert that even though it's called "Boy Culture" I love women, too.
I definitely felt that way in light of this next interview subject, a woman of many accomplishments!
In honor of Janis Ian's nomination for a Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category—alongside fellow out lesbians Rachel Maddow and Ellen DeGeneres, not to mention Bill Clinton and Michelle Obama—I was lucky enough to get to interview the music legend whose 1975 single "At Seventeen" is still the ultimate coming-of-age song.
Boy Culture: Congratulations on your ninth Grammy nomination, this time for the audio version of your memoir Society's Child. Is it especially meaningful to be recognized for reading your book and to be in such esteemed company in the category?
Janis Ian: It's meaningful to be recognized for anything, all the more because I've been in the music industry since I was 12 or 13! The company for this nomination is astonishing, though. I keep thinking there's a joke in there somewhere—an ex-president, the First Lady and three lesbians walk into a bar...
