I was amused to read in Hot Type (June 6) that Windy City Times staff are embarrassed to show the newspaper to their parents because of the very ads that pay their salaries. Hey folks, it's a gay newspaper. It's not for your parents (unless they are queer). It's for the people who patronize those advertisers that you are so ashamed of. Get real.
