Weird News: "Lez Get Real" Editor Paula Brooks Confesses: He's a Married Man in Ohio


We've received a lot of particularly virulent criticism from this website. Turns out "Dr. Paula Brooks" is an avatar for an old white guy from Ohio, who has a wife, and is a retired military man.  Weird news via Slate:

Bill Graber, a 58-year-old retired military man, admitted to the Washington Post that he had been using his wife’s online identity without her knowledge to run the site, which has “A Gay Girls’ View on the World” tagline.

The paper explains:

Brooks had told reporters at The Washington Post that she could only speak on the phone through her father because she was deaf. She provided a photograph of her license as proof of her identity, which showed a woman named Paula Brooks.

On Monday, we continued to question her identity. We spoke to the man who identified himself as her father, who finally admitted after numerous telephone conversations: “I am Paula Brooks.” That man turned out to be Bill Graber.
