The Village Voice columnist talks with Seema Kalia for her regular Huffington Post column, "My Favorite Mistake." For the most part, Musto says he doesn't have huge career regrets. "I'm very comfortable being the 'alternative weekly guy in the corner' who's attained a nice level of success, but is never going to blow up into the big time," he says. He does go into detail about how he lost a spot in a Amaretto di Saronno ad campaign back in 1987, for submitting a press clipping of himself dressed in a hoop dress. "It wasn't cool to be gay then," Musto says. "Sometimes it still isn't."
