‘Rent’ to the small screen … and did you hear about Alia Shawkat? Live musicals are busting out all over TV, thanks to the success of adaptations of The Wiz, Grease and Hairspray (we’ve all forgotten about the way we dragged that stiff Peter Pan on Twitter and have forgiven it for being weird and […]

Jenny Block braces herself I used to hate it when my mom would tell me to seek the silver lining — how losing one thing somehow gave me the chance to get something new; how not getting a job or a part in a play or a place at a university gave me the chance […]

How to do the wrong thing right The most famous verse about springtime ever penned — “April is the cruelest month” (thank you, T.S. Eliot) — was apparently coined not in reference to, say, taxes being due or allergy season descending on us, but rather to all lads whom one meets in high spring being […]

Hi-diddly-ho, neighborinos! Adulting sometimes can really suck. Remember the good old days when you could watch cartoons and think of nothing but the stupid coyote trying to catch that damn roadrunner? I still watch cartoons but think of other stuff I should be doing, or else my mind wanders to worst-case scenarios. I will watch […]

Cassie gets all real-estate-diva on yo’ asses! Hello my gaybies. My birthday was just a few days ago —Feb. 27. I am now 45. Dammit! I am Forty-Five … like our damn president! One thing I have noticed that has changed about doing drag as I have gotten older is: it takes me forever to […]

Jenny Block makes getting your freak on a political statement The time to have more sex is now. The time to relish, to pleasure seek, to kiss and hug and hold hands and dance slow and fuck hard is now. Right now. Things are scary out there. They’re precarious and dangerous and hateful and unpredictable […]

Ah, fabulous February! Nothing about your perversely truncated 28 days (sometimes 29, all right!) is homosexually sane: What other month ever dared even invent two holiday celebrations more diametrically lunatic for gay psyches to absorb than Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras — one a paean to cartoon monogamy, eternally held hallow; the other a Dionysian […]

Cassie speaks her dream to the universe Hey, y’all! How the F is everybody doing? Someone recently told me that if you want something in life, you have to speak it into existence. Let’s say you want a boyfriend. You need to say out loud what you want so the universe can hear you and […]

Jenny Block, out the march Standing in what felt like a sea of women, I found myself unable to shout in protest for fear that I would break into tears. I have often felt like breaking into tears since He Who Shall Not Be Named was announced as the next president. I won’t say “won […]

How do gay people deal with Trumpeters?   Hello my people! I hope you are all surviving this yo-yo winter: Warm, freezing, warm, chilly rain, warm again. Stupid Mother Nature is tryin’ to give us all pneumonia. I stay prepared — I have a spare jacket and an extra pair of shorts in the car. […]
