It's not as if he was always hanging out at The Cock.
In anticipation of this weekend's release of the movie "Capote," the New York Times today has a helpful summary of the life of cafe queen Truman Capote. In the film, Philip Seymour Hoffman brilliantly portrays the writer as he researches and creates his flawed masterpiece "In Cold Blood."
The Times devotes a verbose 900 words to the topic of the queer icon's personal life, including his magnificent rise and tragic fall. We were unsurprised to find that one of the 900 words in this article is "gay."
Why, you ask? Because one of Capote's best friends was the writer Gay Talese, silly goose!
