Author Insists ‘Gay Men Don’t Get Fat’


By Betsy Rothstein Comment

Simon Doonan, the Creative Director at Barney’s New York, will appear at the W Hotel for a book party Wednesday night. This will be his only Washington appearance for his newly published Gay Men Don’t Get Fat.

Clearly he hasn’t met Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.).

The author covers his bases, including Ke$sha, Washington power players and decorating the White House for the holidays in 2009. Born in England, Doonan, a contributor to Slate, also wrote Beautiful People, which was adapted for TV in the UK. He lives in Manhattan with his husband, Jonathan Adler.

He will sign copies of his book between 7 – 9 p.m. The book will be on hand to purchase for $24.95. Hors d’oeuvres will be served alongside a cash bar. RSVP:
