Gay Gayerson was the first one on line at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home to view Judy Garland. The line began forming around 3 a.m. and Gayerson got there first.

Campbell’s funerals have included John Lennon’s (where a decoy hearse was used to fool the press) as well as send-offs for William Randolph Hearst, Joan Crawford, Heath Ledger, the Notorious B.I.G., mobster Frank Costello, Ed Sullivan, Marvin Hamlisch, and artist LeRoy Neiman.

According to Urban Dictionary, the name was used on an episode of Roseanne to indicate the gayest possible person. Of course, that begs the question, does his surname mean he is a "gayer son" than others of his parents', or were one or both of his parents "gayer" than he--and, if so, what made them decide to copulate in the first place?

Gay Gayerson was the gayest little boy in all the world. But he wanted to go into show business in the 70's, when "ethnic" was in. So his agent suggested he change his name, and soon success was his.

Today, that little boy is all grown up and goes by the name "John Travolta."

Gay Gayerson was the inspiration for Emory in "The Boys in the Band," but the producers talked Crowley into toning down the character. Cliff Gorman, while fine in the role, is a pale imitation.

Gay Gayerson was part of Clay Shaw's circle in New Orleans during the early 1960s.

After JFK's assassination, certain things he'd overheard during louche all-night parties at Shaw's took on a whole new meaning.

Gay Gayerson also hung out with Tennessee Williams. Knowing Tennessee knew Gore Vidal well, Gay tried hard yet discreetly to tell the playwright all he'd heard, hoping that some vital inside information would get passed on to Vidal.

Problem was that when in New Orleans, or anywhere, all Tennessee wanted to do was drink highballs, pop pills, and cruise the streets when the straights went home. "Gay", he'd say, smiling, "You are just adorable with all your fantastical tales! But you know, baby, I really don't do politics." Then he'd glaze over, look around the bar, and order more drinks.

After two sudden mysterious deaths involving outer members of Shaw's circle, Gay knew it was time to leave New Orleans for good. He escaped East, never to return, and his secrets died with him.

Gay Gayerson educated Joan Crawford on why you shouldn't use wire hangers:

A. They'll ruin the shape of your clothes.

"I" AM Gay Gayerson. Once, due to "leakage" after a fierce fucking on a September Saturday night, I shoved a maxi-pad down the seat of my pants, because I was NOT going to miss the final Sunday Tea Dance that I could wear my white Capri Pants before Labor Day!

At midnight, I stripped down to my rainbow colored boy-panties, naturally.

Gay Gayerson was the original "Confederate in the Attic". "Coming out of the attic" was a popular euphemism of the day. "Coming out of the closet" did not become popular until the 20th century, but I digress. Confederate soldier Gay realized the union uniforms brought out the blue in his eyes, so he switched sides mid-battle and the rest is history.
