The New York Times Responds to Reports of Its Outing Jason Wu

Gareth Pugh, fall 2009.

This week, Jezebel reported that a knowledgeable fashion source had learned that the New York Times outed Jason Wu to his extended family in a recent profile of the designer. "Styles"-section editor Trip Gabriel responded: "During his reporting, Eric Wilson asked both Wu and his partner, Gustavo Rangel, if it was okay to mention in print that they were a couple. They both consented." [Jezebel]
