New Old Gay

According to a new piece in the trend-hungry New York Observer, reactionary young gay men are intentionally adopting traits of their flaboyant forefathers. Trading indie rock and seedy dives for torch songs and piano bars, these fellas are making “old gay” new again.

Not to get all “cultural theorist” here, but is it really possible to now reposition the same things that historically isolated men as now being semi-ironic? So what if a gay guy likes Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Malkmus? Ugh, I need a boyfriend. Can someone write a trend piece about that?
