You Have Voted, and He is the Hottest Gay Journalist in New York

After spending all day auditing the votes with my infallible friends at Arthur Andersen, I am ready to announce the winner of the second annual Left Behinds Hottest Gay Journalist in New York Contest.

Four hotties stood out from the pack, and in a freakish fluke redolent of Florida 2000, even with hundreds of votes cast, there was an exact tie for first place (believe me, I went through a week of email votes twice this morning to re-tabulate).

According to the bylaws of the Left Behinds Society, in the event of a tie, a secret tribunal of bloggers (i.e., me) gets to select the winner. Based on the fact that he has prevaricated and misled the public about certain elements of his personal life, despite widespread knowledge of his once-taboo-but-now-socially-acceptable lifestyle choice (yes, I'm talking about his membership in a Yale Secret Society), Anderson Cooper has been disqualified.

Which means we have a winner.

You daydreamed about his reportage from scenic Buffalo, you giggled when he dubbed Teresa Heinz Kerry"a bit kooky," and you plotzed the first time he matched wits with Dominic Carter on NY1.

Ladies and gentleman, you have voted, and your choice of the hottest gay journalist in New York is

Pat Healy

In a very close second, with 21% of the votes, is New York Daily News derring-doer

Chris Rovzar

and with 20% of the votes,

erudite Nation rabble-arouser Richard Kim is the third-hottest (but first in my heart) gay journalist in New York.

Winners will be notified of their prizes.


Just to prove that I was paying attention to your nominations, and because I like pics of cute gays as much as the next guy, here is a list of Honorable Mentions, as nominated by you.

    UPDATE: As I was writing this post, Pat Healy got one last email vote. And I quote Steve from Australia:

    I'm not gay, but if I ever have a gay experience, this Otter would have to be it.

    So with Steve's vote of sexually fluid confidence, Pat Healy officially clinches it fair and square.

    what a bunch of gays, I don't know if it is necessary to say who is the hottest gay if gays like any type of men because they are gay

    I dont think any of the above can be listed as the sexiest gay, or the hottest gay, it is wrong, I think we are giving them to much space to do unpleasant things.
