Cultural commentator Michael Musto really enjoys his job. For over twenty years, Michael turned his passion for NYC’s nightlife and celebrity culture into a genre defining gossip column that has been the bread and butter for the weekly newspaper, the Village Voice.
In his new book “La Dolce Musto” includes a pu-pu platter of his “greatest hits” of his popular gossip column in the Village Voice. A mainstay of pop culture and a chronicle of the “hip and hopeful” Michael Musto’s outrageous weekly column has always been a pioneer in gay issues, celebrity news and politics.
Much like myself, Michael Musto’s identity was forged in the AIDS crisis in the late 80s/early 90s. In many ways, Michael distinguished himself from other gossip columnists with his honesty about his own sexuality and his social consciousness that came out of his experience with ACT-UP (the AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power.)
Join Michael, Marc and me as we talk about Clay Aiken and Bary Manilow’s Christmas Special, what kind of men Anderson Cooper likes, the real reason why Britney Spears shaved all her hair off and why anybody gives a damn.
Go see Michael Musto’s book signing here in Chicago at Sidetrack on Wednesday March 28 from 6-9PM.
