To the editors:

I have to respond to the May 14 letter from Chris Rose about Pete Mueller’s March 19 cartoon. My lover and I have been friends of Pete Mueller’s since 1977. He is anything but homophobic. (Neither is he an “uptight homophobic fuck.”)

What we don’t need is uptight, paranoid fucks like Mr. Rose making gay people look like raving misfits.
