On the Search for Gay Modern Love: January 26, 2008

26Jan08

In which The Gay Recluse updates his informal but rather telling quantitative analysis of Modern Love, the weekly Style Section (of The Times) column in which openly gay writers almost never appear, and even less frequently describe a romantic relationship.

This week’s piece: Closing Night for My Bit Part

Subject: Woman looks longingly at famous male television actor with whom she once had a summer fling.

Filed under: Straight Woman on “Looking for Love”

The updated tally: 6 out of 164 columns by openly gay writers; 1 out of 164 on female gay relationships; 0 out of 164 on male gay relationships.

Outstanding question to Daniel Jones, editor of Modern Love: wtf?
