Views

Quotations: "Charting unknown territory, in which many of my readers did not even know an openly gay person, 1 chose a very personal style, inviting readers into my home life. The first column, for example, described how awkward it was for me to try to introduce the woman I love to my boss because no universal language exists to describe gay couples. ‘So tell me, America, how do I introduce Joyce?’ The question invited responses from everyone—whether gay or straight, delighted or hateful or just curious. And that invitation reflected my goal as a columnist: to bridge a gap between the gay and heterosexual communities, to get an open and honest dialogue started. To do that, I opened up my life and assured all readers 1 would present a completely new way of covering gay people and issues. My topics have been varied and thought-provoking and include: gay parents, a street in Provincetown where gay couples feel comfortable holding hands, gays in the military, and the selective use of the Bible throughout American history to support prejudice and discrimination."
