Mr. Manners Takes Up a New Post

The Washington Post has hired Steven Petrow (aka Mr. Manners) to write an advice column with a special focus on LGBTQ issues. The column, dubbed “Civilities,” will be published bi-weekly on Mondays and will focus on things like whether a father should walk his son down the aisle, or how an enlisted soldier should address his commanding officer’s husband. Petrow has written five books, and currently writes the “Manners Hero of the Week” column for Parade. He also previously wrote an etiquette column for The New York Times.

In his first column today, Petrow reflects on the changes that have happened in the country since he first started giving advice on gay issues. Read the whole thing here.
