On 6/29/12, I had the privilege of being a guest for the second time on The Frank DeCaro Show on Sirius satellite radio.
The first time, in 2008, was in-studio; this time was by phone. And unlike the first time, this time I knew going in that Frank’s show is aimed at the gay community.
The first time, Frank posed a riddle: which superhero is secretly gay, Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) or Oliver Queen (Green Arrow)? I played along and guessed Hal because he accessorizes with a shiny green ring. But Frank zinged me: obviously the correct answer is Oliver Queen.
I was ready for him this time!
Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman has three gay connections, all of which we touched on:
1. Bill’s son Fred was gay and for 10 years (1992 to 2002) Fred’s partner was getting Batman money instead of Fred’s only child, Athena (Bill’s granddaughter)
2. Bill actually weighed in on whether or not Batman and Robin were gay
3. Bill’s other big hero creation was the original Green Lantern, who was reinvented as gay in 2012
Thanks for having me again, Frank.
