national gay celebrity draft continues; sitcom/broadway stars still provide most fertile choosing ground

yes, the thing you always assumed was true because it was so obvious even if there was never any outward declaration is actually true! fussy and effeminate david hyde pierce, whose roles include being the only semi-worthwhile thing about perennial emmy-snatcher frasier and the awesome physicist from wet hot american summer, is gay! assuming that’s what “partner” means, which in this case it almost certainly does.

from outing command headquarters, cnn.com:

The 1980s in New York saw the flowering of such playwrights as Durang, Wendy Wasserstein, Mark O’Donnell and Richard Greenberg, and Pierce was fortunate to appear in plays by all of them. He worked at Playwrights Horizons, the Public Theater, Shakespeare in the Park and a lot of regional theaters such as the Guthrie in Minneapolis, Chicago’s Goodman and Long Wharf in New Haven, Conn. Pierce got to Los Angeles in the early 1990s when his partner, actor-writer-producer Brian Hargrove, wanted to write for television. A short-lived Norman Lear series, “The Powers That Be” led to “Frasier.”

at this rate, the celebrity gays will have enough members to field a softball team to compete with the all-star celebrity rehabbers by summer ’08.

Authorities say the sex was consensual but a 16 year old cannot legally consent. The victim cooperated in the investigation and is now in therapy.
