The New York Times Gay Euphemism Generator

The New York Times published an article about the outing of a gay congressman without naming him. Moreover, Times writers often criticize outlets that name closeted public figures. J.K.

I thought I would help out today by putting together this Gay Euphemism Generator, styled on the most winking and unverifiable insinuations published at The Times and other respectable broadsheets, and formed of only the finest constructions harvested from their archives.
