The media is buzzing about NJ Governor McGreevey's apperance at the Empire State Pride Agenda dinner last night - his first appearance at a gay event as a gay American. That's great for the Governor that he's getting on with his life - but where was his wife? Anyway, Gothamist was amused by what the Daily News wrote about his visit backstage at Avenue Q, the puppet musical that includes the gay puppet, Rod:

He posed for pictures with the cast, including several of the governor hugging Rod or looking at him affectionately.

Clearly, when you're out, you're out.
