Adam Giambrone (Jokingly?) Outed by NOW

This week’s NOW Magazine features “Five fearless predictions” for 2010. (Online and in print on page 13, teased on the front page with “City council: Five stunners sure to shake things up.”) Number five is “Adam Giambrone defies the odds,” and it begins:

“It’s kind of a long shot, but Giambrone’s chances of becoming mayor are looking better every day. They don’t call him a wunderkind for nothin’. He’s young. He’s bright. He’s gay. And he looks better than any of his challengers so far.” (Emphasis added.)

He may be “gay-positive,” as Xtra! put it, and he may have a transgendered brother, but Adam Giambrone? Not gay, as he confirmed on his Facebook:
Thing is, we’re not entirely sure if the initial NOW article is a joke—a collection of things writer Enzo Di Matteo wishes would come true in 2010 but won’t. In which case: haha? [UPDATE, 1:01 p.m.: Seems it was a straightforward mistake: NOW has updated the online version of the article to say that Giambrone is “gay-positive.”]
Kudos to Jonathan Goldsbie for the discovery.
