Gay Mad Men (The Real 60's)
Article by David Leddick, about being gay in the advertising game portrayed on Mad Men.
David Leddick: Being Gay in the World of Mad, Mad Men: What It Was Really Like
hehe: "At one point, my staff went on strike and told management that it was either me or them. They didn't want to work for me anymore. The head account executive called Revlon while they sat in front of his desk in assembled mutiny. He spoke briefly to the client and hung up. He said, "They like David. You're all fired." I only found out about this later."

Great article, thank you for sharing. He drives home a fact I have seen in business in my life, if you are a producer/rainmaker, you are talented and good at what you do, you can write your own ticket in life. It seems as though he was an exception person and extremely talented, I thought he would have succeed no matter what. People like that always rise to the top, the people in the middle with average talent are not afforded the luxuries that the talented are afforded. If he was moderately talented and gay I think his experiences would have been vastly different.
Huffington post get some flippin editors, that article has typos, stop being so sloppy.
