REPLIED to an email I sent him this morning regarding his story in the NY Times and the Times referring to Chi Chi LaRue as MS LaRue. Here's part of Tom's reply:
LOL! Mike, I asked the same thing of the author of the piece and he said
the Times absolutely has a defined stylistic
treatment of drag queens and it happens to be the same as I use in
conversation. i.e. the title matches the gender
of the name being used. If I had referred to Larry they would, of course,
have used Mr.
This is the reply I just sent him:
There's a Sulzberger spinning in their grave, somewhere...
And Clare Boothe Luce is vomiting in hell.
I love Tom Judson...here's the perfect man...He's a showtunes fag, a handy man and a porn stud. Plus, he can write and he's freaking adorable.
He needs to be cloned.
