Time magazine’s John Cloud wrote a cover article entitled The Battle Over Gay Teens. I met John when he attended the Point Foundation retreat where he interviewed a number of the young people featured in his piece.
In speaking with him a few weeks after the retreat, he explained that his goal was to give gay teens as much airspace as possible in order to tell their stories (that means he had to cut out some of us older queers).
Although I have not yet gotten my hands on the magazine to read the whole article (and see the lovely photos taken by Katja Heinemann who took this photo of me!) I imagine it will be thoughtful and insightful.
John even attended the Exodus conference and provides first hand accounts of his time.
Also, when you get a chance, check out the excellent website/blog of Keith Boykin, the speaker and co-author of Beyond the Downlow, Sex, Lies, and Denial in Black America. I find he provides a clear voice in the midst of a predominately white controlled gay media.
