Newsweek cover photo of “first gay president” stirs a buzz
There’s LOTS OF STUFF on the Internet today about the latest issue of Newsweek, which hits the newsstands tomorrow:
It won’t be nearly as controversial as Time magazine’s breastfeeding cover, but Newsweek’s May 21 issue declares Barack Obama the country’s “first gay president.”
The accompanying cover story was written by Andrew Sullivan, the popular–and openly gay–political blogger. The magazine even gives the commander-in-chief a rainbow halo.
Sullivan’s cover story is not yet online, but in a blog post published earlier this week, Sullivan wrote that Obama’s support of gay marriage brought him to tears.
