SIMON DOONAN SAYS ” EAT GAY FOOD AND YOU’LL NEVER GET FAT”
Our fashion obsessed friend turned writer, Simon Doonan (Barneys) has done it again. Another book, that is, and it’s loaded with our favorite thing: sweeping generalizations. (We were lucky to be included in Simon’s first book “Wacky Chicks.”) His latest, “Gay Men Don’t Get Fat” is a whole new take on diets. He says gay men don’t get fat because they eat gay food. Simon declares there are two food groups: gay and straight. A typical gay food is sushi, and a typical straight food is a burrito. Simon advises everyone to “eat like a gay man and you will never get fat.” Eating like a gay man means enjoying leafy salads w/dressing on the side, or macaroons, all with an attractive presentation. One pertinent tip from the book: Simon advises readers to “watch “Hoarders” because it’s so disgusting it will ruin the appetite.” We’re hoping a “gay restaurant “ will open soon in our neighborhood.
