How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patick Harris is on the cover of the October 2009 issue of New York Times magazine. In the issue Neil talks about transitioning from child actor to being a gay man in Hollywood and about how he and his boyfriend David Burtka are going to get married and adopt a baby.Here are some of the highlights from the interview:On his boyfriend David Burtka: "We yin and yang very well. We're both Gemini, but I, you can probably tell, I process what the options are, and figure out what to say, and he tends to just say what he is feeling. I'm just bowled over by him. He's made my life exponentially more livable. He's just--great. I'm his forever protector, and I'm happiest when he's happy."On adopting a child: "We'd make very good parents."On how he felt when Perez Hilton outed the gay couple: "So long as you're representing yourself well, you're making good choices for good reasons, all of the circumstantial things will vanish."On his gay inspiration Real World: New Orleans Danny Roberts: "He was a unique entity at the time, as someone who was seemingly so confident in their skin that they didn't need to wear their sexuality, uh- or to flaunt their sexuality? To be more of one thing than another...and I...it's a personal thing, I suppose, but I personally responded to his lack of overt grandstanding. Again, tricky waters, because if I say something like 'He didn't wave flags', it sounds like I'm disrespecting people that do, who I think are tremendously important, but there's more than one way to get into people's psyches."
