The best introduction to me, and probably to my writing as well, can be found in a Modern Love column I wrote for the New York Times.
Please note, contrary to the NYT artist’s rendering, I have never worn a three-person plaid poncho with anyone.
I live with my boyfriend, Drew – no, we’re not married – and our twins Bennett and Sutton, who were born in August 2009. They were conceived via gestational surrogate, with eggs provided by Drew’s sister, Susie. (Yes, I provided the sperm… which I add not because I enjoy talking about my sperm with complete strangers, but because some people will wonder… and what must those people think?)
If any of this is confusing or makes you uncomfortable, then please read my blog for further detail. I promise that once you get to know us, our family makes perfect sense.
I’m currently a stay-home Dad raising my kids full-time, but while they’re sleeping, I’m working on a memoir about our whole crazy story, tentatively titled WHERE DO GAYBIES COME FROM?
Out of pure narcissism, I’ve migrated over most of the stuff from my old blog, Why Jerry Why, which is several years old, not quite on-topic and only sporadically amusing. Proceed with caution.
Also, please follow me on Twitter. It’ll help me sell the book.
