Ted Gideonse has been a drug store delivery boy, a travel writer, a Newsweek reporter, a confetti technician, a freelance editor, a literary agent, a judge for Guinness World Records, and, most recently, a writing teacher. Currently a PhD candidate in anthropology at UCSD, Ted has written for The Advocate, New York, Rolling Stone, Salon.com, Newsweek, Out, TV Guide, and Maisonneuve. He is the co-editor, with his husband Rob Williams, of From Boys To Men: Gay Men Write About Growing Up (Carroll & Graf, 2006). And, of course, he has a blog: The Gideonse Bible. His last name is pronounced just as “Gideon’s” is. Get it?
