The state’s largest gay newspaper, The Philadelphia Gay News, just put to bed an interview with Senator Clinton, and the paper’s publisher, Mark Segal, has said, “The Clinton campaign takes the GLBT community very seriously… At this point, [the gay vote] is Hillary’s to lose.” Queerty notes that the same paper put up a bit of a stink over the fact that Barack refused to sit down with them, and has only met with the gay press once since beginning his run for President.
But not to be outdone in gay-demographic diplomacy, Barack was the first major candidate ever to spend ad dollars in local gay newspapers, prior to the Texas and Ohio primaries, with full-page ads that made reference to the Stonewall Riots. We also note this little video currently playing on the Obama website which features a cute, argyle-sweater-clad teacher from the Bronx High School of Performance and Stagecraft discussing issues of race in the classroom, and students’ reactions to Barack’s speech on race.
Also, (and it’s not apropos of nothing as Gawker says, but, rather, apropos of his gayness) that l’il faglet superdelegate Jason Rae popped up again this week, now being mocked on the Daily Show for his taste in movies and music. In reaction to him saying that his favorite musician was Celine Dion, Jason Jones quips, “You certainly have your finger on the pulse of the youth.”

* Incidentally, and apropos of nothing, Pittsburgh was the fictional setting for the American version of Queer as Folk,
as it was thought by the writers as somehow equivalent to the original show’s
setting: Manchester, England. We’re still pretty sure the
non-fictional gay scene there is neither as loud, proud, or exciting as
that show made it out to be.
