‘Out’ Ranks the Top 50 Gays
NY mag ^ | 4/4/7

Posted on 04/04/2007 6:46:07 AM PDT by NativeNewYorker

When New York did a "Gay Life Now" issue in 2001, only seven of the forty prominent New York gays asked to pose for the cover were willing. Those big shots may have been gay, and they may have been out, but it just wouldn't do for them to be gay and out on the cover of a magazine. "There was a time when the closet was a necessary safe haven," our pal Maer Roshan, who edited the issue, wrote in an angry 2,000-word essay. "But now, it exists as an anachronistic monument to shame. It's time for our public figures to stop hiding in there — and for journalists to stop helping them." Six years and a month later, maybe at least that second part has come true. Here's a first glimpse at the cover of Out magazine's "50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America" issue. (Click here for a larger image.) Those are models holding Jodie Foster and Anderson Cooper masks on the cover. Neither, of course, would appear themselves.

1. David Geffen
2. Anderson Cooper
3. Ellen DeGeneres
4. Tim Gill
5. Barney Frank
6. Rosie O’Donnell
7. The New York Times Gay Mafia: Richard Berke, Ben Brantley, Frank Bruni, Stuart Elliott, Adam Nagourney, Stefano Tonchi, and Eric Wilson

8. Marc Jacobs
9. Andrew Tobias
10. Brian Graden
11. Jann Wenner
12. Andrew Sullivan
13. Suze Orman
14. Joe Solmonese
15. Fred Hochberg
16. Christine Quinn

17. Perez Hilton
18. Scott Rudin
19. John Aravosis
20. Sheila Kuehl
21. James B. Stewart
22. Nick Denton
23. Tom Ford
24. Nate Berkus
25. Adam Moss

26. Jim Nelson
27. Lorri L. Jean
28. Adam Rose
29. Annie Leibovitz
30. Simon Halls and Stephen Huvane
31. Bryan Lourd
32. Bryan Singer
33. Jonathan Burnham

40. Marc Cherry
41. Carolyn Strauss
42. Irshad Manji
43. Jodie Foster

44. Christine Vachon
45. André Leon Talley

Sure. Jodie has been living in Pacific Palisades with her partner for years.

I think she’s got two kids.

Be Seeing You,

This list proves it is a mental disease. Would you want any of your children or grandchildren on a list with these people?

I am so sick of hearing about all things:

1. Gay

and

2. Muslim

I feel like I'm having gayness and Islam constantly shoved down my throat (so to speak). Enough already, media!

The top six U.S. male serial killers were all gay:

. Donald Harvey claimed 37 victims in Kentucky;

. John Wayne Gacy raped and killed 33 boys in Chicago, burying them under
his house and in his yard;

. Patrick Kearney accounted for 32, cutting his victims into small pieces
after sex and leaving them in trash bags along the Los Angeles freeways;

. Bruce Davis molested and killed 27 young men and boys in Illinois;

. A gay sex-murder-torture ring (Corll-Henley-Brooks) sent 27 Texas men and
boys to their grave; and

. Juan Corona was convicted of murdering 25 migrant workers (he “made love”
with their corpses).

What's really ironic, too, is that, if the word on the street in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban meant anything, the two aren't necessarily incompatible.

Jodie Foster - yes! But she’s separated from the father of her children. Yes the turkey baster is in the kitchen drawer and she is in the bedroom!

Anderson Cooper? Does this make it official? And Jann Wenner?

The fact two of their homosexuals did not appear is testimony to the fact homosexuality is still an abnormal behavior and wrong in the eyes of the public.

How many asked to have their names removed from the list?

Jodie Foster has steadfastly refused to answer whether she is gay or not. Of course, refusing to bring your sexual life into public discussion is just “evidence” that you are in the closet according to homosexual activists.

Rosie O’Donnel is “powerfull”? That must mean something else in gay speak. Maybe it means crazy lunatic with deep psychotic issues, which is why she thinks she’s a lesbo in the first place. It’s easy to see she lives in her own little alternate reality world as she spouts off the “views” she see’s from within it.
