They’re talking about it

Posted in Uncategorized by trishbendix on August 7, 2008

I was asked to contribute to Time Out’s gay Market Days issue that’s out this week. I co-wrote a feature on places in Chicago that aren’t gay per se, yet totally are. (Read it to make sense out of it.) My dear pal Jason (who edits the Gay and Lesbian section of TO) spearheaded the issue and went on Feast of Fools to promote it this week. I was listening in and laughed out loud when they called me out (by name) for writing about Spyners Pub, a dive on the West Side.

For that, I wish I had actually come up with Spyners on my own. Sadly, it was assigned to me so I don’t deserve any positive or negative recognition for that addition to the gayness of our city. I will take credit, though, for writing whatever it is they call me for as I am basically the resident “lesbian expert.” (Also possibly thanks to Jason, who allowed me to start writing for his section a couple of years ago.)

It’s really not everyday you get name-checked in a national podcast for “fucking it up.” It wasn’t me, Fausto!
