In defense of Logo’s ‘Fire Island’

  • “We need to make America’s gays tough, witty and fun again. Growing up in the ‘80s wasn’t easy as a gay teen, but we fought our battles and stood up to the bullies and survived. Those experiences made us tough and resilient. It was good preparation for what awaited us in the real world, which was way more real than reality TV.”
    YES!!! PEFECTLY STATED. THIS IS THE MOLD I WAS casted from and proud of it! Finally someone gets what I’ve been saying all along!!!! THANK YOU!!!! Someone had to say it other than me!

    Everyone these days is so damn PC, weak and lacks a tough skin! Get over it and get loud, in your face and proud! LOVE IT Kevin Knaff!!

  • I miss my Cherry Grove, and Pines days!

  • Wimberly’s criticism of a not-yet-aired show debasing the culture reminds me of the time years ago when an activist declared an earlier venture, the New York Blade, unfit to wrap fish in–before the first issue had hit the street. As it would no doubt be incorrect to say, “Girl, please.”

  • seems to me either side could be saying ‘I dismiss and demean your viewpoint by interpreting it exclusively through the lens of my experience.’

    as for me, I don’t expect I’ll be watching the show because frankly I have enough reality-style conflict in my life, and have Ambien for those times when I need something to put me to sleep.
