Joining New York magazine as contributing editor in 2016, Sullivan covers politics and culture, and occasionally writes features, such as his coverage of the 2016 Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Also in 2016, he announced two new books: Keeping the Faith, a spiritual memoir about the future and meaning of Christianity in the 21st Century, and a 30-year retrospective of essays, reviews and posts entitled Thinking Out Loud. One of its earliest activists, Sullivan set the gay rights movement’s agenda with two landmark works: 1995's Virtually Normal: An Argument About Homosexuality and 1989's “Here Comes the Groom: A (Conservative) Case for Gay Marriage.” He also argued for a conservatism based on practical restraint, individual freedom, constitutional norms, and skepticism in The Conservative Soul: Fundamentalism, Freedom, and the Future of the Right. A practicing Catholic, Sullivan has challenged the Church's position on gay life. He is an Oxford graduate and received his PhD from Harvard University.
