Gay Flag Controversy in Paper Magazine

Friday, June 26, 2009 - 09:28 PM

Our gay pride flag redesign challenge drew lots of great listener entries — and no small amount of criticism (see here and here). Yesterday, Papermag ran an interview with Kurt about the kerfuffle. Why mess with a beloved symbol? Kurt: 'I think it’s an interesting way to make people look more closely at the things they take for granted, which is something we do on the show anyway.' Read the whole interview here.

Isaac Mizrahi reveals the winning listener design during this week's broadcast.

Also, Mark Randall of Worldstudio and Kurt talked with WNYC's Brian Lehrer about the redesign and its critics.  Plus, coverage of the challenge in Mother Jones and UnBeige.
