A 'Rolling Stone' gathers no 'mos

by Jeremy Hooper

Rolling Stone LogoRolling Stone -- the real, nearly 43-year-old publication co-founded by the openly gay Jann Wenner -- responds to its Uganda imitator:

A new newspaper out of Uganda bearing the name Rolling Stone has published one of the most vile and hateful anti-gay screeds we have ever read. The article printed the addresses and photos of 100 homosexuals in the country, calling for them to be hanged. Not only are we not affiliated in any way with the Ugandan paper, we have demanded they cease using our name as a title. But there is a larger issue at stake: Homosexuality is still a crime in much of Africa, often punishable by life in prison. “Half the world’s countries that criminalize homosexual conduct do so because they cling to Victorian morality and colonial laws,” says Scott Long of Human Rights Watch. “Getting rid of these unjust remnants of the British empire is long overdue.”

Now if Spin magazine would address the way anti-LGBT social conservatives co-opt their title (or at least its concept).
