[1] Kevin Naff, Washington Blade, "The Reluctant Gay Icon", 14 October 2005, with several quotes from Hunter's then-upcoming autobiography. Naff writes, "Despite his Catholic faith and desire not to be known as a gay icon, Hunter now talks openly about his sexual orientation and his 23-year relationship with [Allan] Glaser. It's another striking contradiction in a life marked by conflicting influences -- the allure of Hollywood glitz and glamour versus his mother's lessons in modesty."
