It’s hard not to feel like America is getting gayer: It isn’t just the plethora of LGBT characters on TV, or the apparent boom in straight girls living for RuPaul’s Drag Race. There’s a persistent feeling that the citizenry as a whole are more accepting of the homos among them. Even here in the heart of the South—where I’ve been living for the past six months—folks seem mostly curious when I tell them I...
