Justin Sayre Of 'The Meeting' Sounds Off On Misogyny In The Gay Community

In his latest video for HuffPost Gay Voices, writer-actor Justin Sayre humorously tackles Rose McGowan's recent claims about gay men and misogyny.

"It's true -- we're not nice to women," Sayre says in the clip. "Those girls -- let's be honest -- they saved our lives in high school. If you didn't have a beard you could take to a prom, what were you doing?"

Noting that he attended 24 proms during his high school years, he added, "I looked great in a suit, I loved to dance and I was not gonna bring you home pregnant. I was a perfect prom date."

Sayre's "International Order of Sodomites" (I.O.S.) gathers once a month for "The Meeting," honoring an artist or a cultural work that is iconic to the gay community. Previous editions have been dedicated to Cher, Karen Carpenter and Stephen King's "Carrie."

The holiday installment of "The Meeting," which features guests Lady Rizo, Julian Fleisher, David Drake, Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson, hits New York's Joe's Pub on Dec. 7.

In other news, "Sparkle & Circulate with Justin Sayre," the official I.O.S. podcast, has just released its second episode, featuring an interview with writer and talk radio host Frank DeCaro.

Meanwhile, you can also view some previous performances from "The Meeting" on Sayre's official YouTube page. For more Sayre, head to Facebook and Twitter.
