Yes, he’s been featured here a lot lately.
But y’know, you come out of the closet and give a head-turning guest turn on a watercooler topic of a show and next thing you know people are following you around and taking your picture. Don’t blame us for featuring him so much. We’re just victims of the zeitgeist.
Besides, we can’t help but cheer on any newly minted gay in the spotlight. And then there’s the fact that we wound up discussing his sweater.

Lorenzo’s all about the fair isle sweater this season and keeps urging Tom to consider adding one to his wardrobe. Tom, a decade-plus of bad grade school pictures from the seventies laser engraved into his memory, can’t seem to get Lorenzo to understand that even if it’s a look that’s on trend, not everyone can pull it off – or even wants to. Lorenzo ignores Tom’s blasphemy and lovingly strokes his brand new Gant by Michael Bastian sweater with the cardinals and snowflakes on it, envisioning wearing it for upcoming holiday festivities. Tom doesn’t know how to tell him that his high school and college age nieces and nephews are all going to assume Uncle Lorenzo is wearing his sweater “ironically” and that one of them is bound to make a smartass comment that will piss Uncle Lorenzo off.
Having said all that, there really are some cute Norwegian fair isle sweaters out there on the racks and Zachary is rocking his. Tom might be convinced.
But snowflakes are still out of the question.
