As a student at Magdalen College, Oxford, Andrew Sullivan became president of the Oxford Union Society, the famous debating club. So how did Pat Buchanan reduce him to a typical British stammer on CNN’s Crossfire a couple years ago? Now’s your chance to find out: Sullivan will discuss and sign copies of his pathbreaking book Virtually Normal: An Argument About Homosexuality. Generally well received, the book sets forth a view of the fight for gay equality that’s conservative and yet mindful of lesbians’ and gays’ second-class status. Those who want to tweak Sullivan at the signing should arm themselves with Alan Ryan’s critical review in the New Yorker. At 6 p.m. at Lambda Rising, 1625 Connecticut Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 462-6969.
