The Advocate is – along with Out – the premiere national source for news about the gay and lesbian community. Michael Giltz’s work for The Advocate has ranged widely from interviews with out soldiers in the UK to pieces on the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. He’s done major entertainment stories for The Advocate, including working on their annual Oscar cover feature, major pieces on landmark films like “The Hours” and “Boys Don’t Cry” and “A Beautiful Mind,” the coming out story of T. R. Knight from TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and news-making interviews with figures like Bill O’Reilly, as well as sporadic film and TV and theater reviews and annual coverage of the Cannes Film Festival. He’s gone on set in New Orleans to interview Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey and flown to London to visit the home of UK pop star Darren Hayes. For The Advocate, he’s interviewed Broadway legends like Nathan Lane and Chita Rivera, movie stars like Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman, directors like Ron Howard, and authors like Armistead Maupin of “Tales Of The City” and Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Cunningham.
