This is a transcript of mediabistro.com's March 12 panel, "Gay Editors at Mainstream Magazines: Ghetto or Gestalt?" cosponsored by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association and held at New York's Obeca Li. Produced by mediabistro.com editor Albert Lee and NLGJA's New York chapter head Steve Reed (also deputy wire editor for The New York Times), the panel was moderated by Newsweek International senior editor Marcus Mabry and included:
Arlyn Tobias Gajilan, senior editor at FSB: Fortune Small Business and a veteran reporter on gay issues for Newsweek;
Adam Moss, editor of The New York Times Magazine;
Maer Roshan, former editorial director of Talk magazine;
Henry Scott, media consultant for BusinessWeek, Nest, et al, and former president and editorial director of Out magazine; and
Emil Wilbekin, editor-in-chief of Vibe.
It definitely feels like a heavier burden, because when I go to the ASME [American Society of Magazine Editors] meetings, I see tons and tons of gay people we all kiki and drink our white wine, and you know, "See you in the Pines, see you in South Beach."

WOLF: Well yes... We are just the"starts" of the MSM...er... :) But behind us there is an army of lefties just like us... all fighting for the same cause.
Ok team, let's do a cheer! :)
Correction: "stars" :)
"... we all kiki and drink our white wine"
Can somebody translate this, lol?
Yeah. I mean, I get drinking white wine, but what in the wide world of sports does it mean to "kiki"?
I'm reasonably certain it's not golf.
It's like Lyndon Johnson said that time, to nobody in particular, in that scene in The Best and the Brightest after the Ten Wise Men, who six weeks earlier had advised LBJ to stand firm and strengthen his efforts in Vietnam, had walked out of a fresh consultation during Tet, having just advised Johnson that the U.S. had lost the war in Vietnam and that he should cut his losses and get out.
Quoth LBJ, lost in thought, "Somebody poisoned the well."
FYI. And what is "kiki" - do I want to know?

Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING
You might profitably look at their entry for the word "homophobia" -- and notice that it seems to have been overtly political coinage. Notice, too, that the word was coined in 1972, when organized gay psychiatrists and psychologists were plotting the political overthrow of the clinical definition of homosexuality as a paraphilia, and the institutionalization of their own definition of "normal".
I found a few other references that all seemed to be related back to this usage, such as the Japanese video character "Hard Gay Kiki Ippatsu" (actually performed by a straight man).
I also found an archived reference to an old article in the July, 1960 issue of One: The Homosexual Viewpoint entitled, "KiKi [sic], or the butch-femme". It was part of a resource list at www.rainbowhistory.org.
Ping to the link -- you got this one? Good glossary.
According to its political correspondent Richard Burke, speaking to the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association, "Three-quarters of the people who decide what goes on the front page [of the Times] are 'not-so-closeted' homosexuals."
It might be what Foley wanted to do to the underaged pages.
Can you imagine the horror if there were a symposium of editors or reporters who were concerned about marriage or children? My G-d, it would be lampooned as a 1950s revival or Archie Bunkerism. If a group of reporters start creating a cabal to protect politicians who protected family values, it would be exposed as 'protectionism' and 'bias' and a corruption of the Constitution itself.
