Logo announced today that award-winning writer Michael Musto will join the network’s digital site NewNowNext as a weekly columnist. Titled “Musto Unfiltered,” the weekly column will bring readers a regular taste of Musto’s humorist take on the personalities, issues and gossip affecting the LGBT community.
“Michael Musto is a legendary columnist and we are so excited to have his wit and humor at NewNowNext,” said Matthew Breen, editorial director of NewNowNext. “Michael’s column is a refreshing new voice for our readers, and is just the latest in the continued growth of NewNowNext.”
“I am thrilled to be joining the excitement at NewNowNext, where I will serve an up-to-the-minute array of hot topics, interviews, and opinions," said Musto. "I will celebrate the underdog—but I will also take no prisoners. As Cher says, ‘Keep your eyes open, b’tch.’”
Musto famously wrote the long running “La Dolce Musto” column in the Village Voice and his work has also appeared in The New York Times styles section, Paper Magazine, and Out.com. Musto was selected to the Out100 list, has won seven Glam Awards as “Best Nightlife Writer,” and has written four books, including the seminal non-fiction guide Downtown and the roman-a-clef Manhattan on the Rocks.
Musto is a recurring panelist on Logo’s campy cinephile series Cocktails & Classics, and is a rotating co-host of the nationally syndicated Theater Talk series devoted to the world of stage.
