The Women We Love free pdf A chorus of gay voices rises to sing the praises of women who inspired them -- muses, mentors, even mothers who amuse and amaze. Jason Howard, an activist, artist, and writer with many accolades of his own, gathers this stunning homage to those females gay men hold as icons. Pop star and opera librettist Rufus Wainwright pens a love note to his equally talented sister, Martha. Kevin Sessums, famed "Vanity Fair" journalist and current editor of "429 Magazine," writes of his childhood maid, in a riveting confessional. Wayne Koestenbaum reminds us all of the impact Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had on millions and the indelible mark she left on his heart.
