Andrew Sullivan

Andrew Sullivan (b. 196?) is the name of an Anglo-American journalist and intellectual known both for his heterodox personal-political identity (sexually gay, politically Tory/conservative, religiously Catholic) as well as for his pioneering efforts in the field of Web log journalism.

Sullivan received a B.A. in modern history from Oxford University (Magdalen College) before going on to finish a Ph.D. in political science at Harvard, writing his dissertation on conservative British philosopher Michael Oakeshott[?]. In 1986 he would begin his career with The New Republic magazine and serve as its editor from 1991 to 1996. In late 2000 he began his blog http://www.AndrewSullivan.com and soon it became one of the most popular political blogs on the Internet, registering 250,000 unique visits per month by the end of 2002. In between starting his blog and ending his TNR editorship, Sullivan would write two works on homosexuality, arguing for its social acceptance on conservative grounds.

Sullivan is often compared to Lesbian academic Camille Paglia, another gay intellectual who argues from a non-Leftist perspective.
