Mark has appeared as a spokesperson on ABC News, 48 Hours, the BBC, CNN, and in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. His award-winning writing has been featured in The Advocate, Newsweek, POZ Magazine, Queerty, and TheBody.com.
Mark has been honored for his writing numerous times, including the 2007-2008 National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association’s award for best opinion piece of the year, for his essay “Once, When We Were Heroes,” about the early days of the AIDS epidemic.
Once a week, he convenes a regular Zoom call with family and close friends to review Kwame Anthony Appiah’s The Ethicist column and The New York Times News Quiz.
We have been reviewing the print edition of the Sunday New York Times for six and a half years.
