Simon Doonan shares why "Gay Men Don't Get Fat"

Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador at Large of Barney's, talks about his new book "Gay Men Don't Get Fat" and answers a few questions exclusively for dot429.

Q: What ratio of gay food to straight food is best?
Simon Doonan: I believe in 50/50. For every big fat gay steak, there must be a fluffy nelly salad.

Q: Can gay food be "reformed" by battering and frying it?

Doonan: Absolutely!! If you deep fry one of those delicate tangerine macaroons, it is the equivalent of giving it a sex-change.

Q: Do you anticipate Republican presidential candidates taking an oath that they will never eat gay food?
Doonan: The all looks so nervous every time the word "gay" comes up that you start to wonder why it's such a hot button. They need to eat more Arugula and less Velveta.
