Why every girl needs a gay best friend
Posted by pozlife on June 4, 2007
Diamonds may be forever, but it turns out that a gay boy is actually a girl’s best friend, according to a new book.
Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys – true tales of love, lust and friendship between straight women and gay men was launched in New York last week with a rainbow of hysterical real life stories.
Reinforcing stereotypes was contributor Karen Robinovitz, who had “bridesgays” at her wedding instead of bridesmaids and whose best friends and objects of unrequited lust growing up were always gay men.
“My friends muse that my love affair with boys who like boys is out of emotional safety, but I wholeheartedly disagree. It’s all about fashion,” writes Robinovitz.
But while the book’s editors believe the fag hag is alive and well, British contributor Simon Doonan, thinks punk, gay liberation and “the new man” have killed them off. Doonan claims fag hags became obsolete because straight men are now less ‘obnoxious’ to be around.
