Merv Griffin is “The Mogul”

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I’m going to have to pull Michelangelo Signorile’s Queer in America back off the shelf now that he has identified “The Mogul” as the recently deceased Merv Griffin. I no longer remember what Signorile wrote about Griffin then, but here’s what he said last night:

Merv Griffin accomplished a lot and is, in his death, being held up as a [sic] example of a stellar Hollywood businessman. But he should also be held up as man who, like Malcolm Forbes before him, was hugely influential and powerful and yet still allowed the closet and homophobia to manipulate his life, and to cause him to do harm to his own people. That should not be forgotten.
