Mitchell Gold - A Queer New York Video Interview
Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams are the founders of the internationally acclaimed home furnishings company Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams offering furniture, lighting, rugs and accessories designed to make people comfortable. They have a store in Manhattan at 210 Lafayette (at Kenmare Square). Mitchell is also a tireless and generous gay activist. He and I have been arguing via email about leadership in the gay activist community and about how to combat homophobia in organized religion.
In my video interview with Mitchell Gold, after the jump, you'll get two minutes about his new book (more of an intellectual approach to home furnishing than I expected), and five minutes of strong words about gay leadership and strategies. I was impressed.
