In Gay City News, under the title Labor Big Outs Himself, Applebaum declared:
“I am defining myself publicly, and not just defining myself privately. That’s what makes a difference. I wanted to make my public role not just as a labor leader or Jewish labor leader, but as a gay Jewish labor leader.”
Wow! Congratulations, Stu!
It's too bad you, like so many other people on the left, feel you have "define" yourself by pandering to identity politics, as opposed to just saying you're an American.
