Why ‘Days of Our Lives’ axing its gay characters was the worst decision ever

Daytime soap fans are as loyal as The Lord of the Rings’ Samwise Gamgee. If they weren’t, soap operas wouldn’t be be passed along from generation to generation, sometimes remaining on air and in production for more than half a century. When was the last time a primetime drama series did that? In 2020, Days of Our Lives, the longest-running of the four surviving network soaps after General Hospital, is celebrating its 55th year of love in the afternoon. To commemorate the occasion, the powers th...

Dua Lipa Reveals That Her New Short Bangs Weren't Exactly Intentional

Untouchable and invincible as they may seem, celebrities are still susceptible to the everyday beauty woes we plebeians deal with. Take Dua Lipa, for example. The "Physical" singer just debuted brand-new bangs born not out of the desire to experiment with a fresh look but rather of necessity due to some bleach-related damage. Ever since the end of 2019, Lipa's been rocking a cool two-toned hairstyle that's bright blond on top and black underneath, consistently opting for '90s-style face-framing...

Instead of apologizing to the gays, Wendy Williams needs to fix herself

What a girl wants depends on the girl, and what Wendy Williams really really wants is as obvious as the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ agenda: She wants traditional gender roles. She wants to wear men’s shirts, short skirts, to color her hair, do what she dares. She wants a man who makes her feel like a woman. But then, who needs men at all on Galentine’s Day? During the February 13 episode of her eponymous daytime talk show, Wendy explained the Parks and Recreations twist on Valentine’s Day...

Beyoncè’s Manicurist Gave Me Chip-Free Nails - For Just $11

I'll admit that I don't get my nails done very often, but when I was presented with the opportunity to get a manicure from Lisa Logan - aka the woman who does Beyoncé Knowles's nails - I was obviously very happy to oblige. Logan is a veteran nail artist who's worked in the industry for 15 years.

How to Smell Like the Best Version of Yourself on a Date, According to a Matchmaker

It's one generalization we're positive anyone would co-sign: smelling good just feels . . . nice, especially if you're embarking on a date. (Nobody wants to let on that they're fresh from a Flywheel class or stood too close to a hot dog stand in Times Square until you're at least three years in, and that is final.) Fact is, your scent doesn't just impact your confidence: it's also correlated with how we pick partners. "In order to get to that first date, especially in the superficial era of onl...

America’s First Drag Queen Was Also America’s First LGBTQ Activist and a Former Slave

Negro Dive Raided. Thirteen Black Men Dressed as Women Surprised at Supper and Arrested. —The Washington Post, April 13, 1888 Sometimes, when we are engaged as either participant in, or eyewitness to, the making of history, its easy to forget the history-makers who came earlier, who dug the trenches that allow our modern battles to be waged out in the open. Take America’s first self-appointed “queen of drag” and pioneering LGBTQ activist, William Dorsey Swann, born into slavery around 1858. 30 ...

Have You Noticed a Change in Your Hair Texture? Here's Why That Happens

Have you ever looked at your hair - like, really, really taken a good look at it - and noticed that it looks and/or feels a little differently than it did a few years ago? Your curls may not be as springy as they once were, or maybe your curl pattern altogether has loosened up a little. Upon running my hands through my hair a few months ago, I discovered that the curls at the back of my head didn't feel quite as tight or kinky as they used to. If you've shared this experience, don't panic - you...

Young gay men unaware about HPV or that there’s a vaccine available

If there was a vaccine against HIV, you can be sure gay men would be rushing to get vaccinated. However, despite there being a vaccination available for HPV, it turns out many young, gay and bisexual men don’t know about it or the viral infection it fights. That’s the findings from a new study by researchers at Rutgers University, published in the Journal of Community Health. HPV stands for Human Papilloma Virus. There are several different types of HPV virus: some can cause warts and some can ...

I Got Lip Fillers For the First Time and My Life Will Never Be the Same

The first time I decided I was going to get lip filler was after a friend of mine sent a photo of Kendall Jenner to a group chat on Instagram. It didn't take long for a flurry of messages to come in commenting on her lips. To me, they were plush and perfect; to my friends, they were "too much." "Can't people just be happy with how they look and be natural?" one friend asked. I suddenly felt defensive over a celebrity I never met - one who, for the record, has never confirmed nor denied getting l...

An Artist Tricks Google Maps Into Creating a Virtual Traffic Jam, Using a Little Red Wagon & 99 Smartphones

Sometimes the miraculous time-saving conveniences we’ve come to depend on can have the opposite effect, as artist Simon Wickert recently demonstrated, ambling about the streets of Berlin at a Huck Finn-ish pace, towing a squeaky-wheeled red wagon loaded with 99 secondhand smartphones. Each phone had a SIM card, and all were running the Google Maps app. The result? A near-instantaneous "virtual traffic jam” on Google Maps, even though bicyclists seem to vastly outnumber motorists alon...

The "Mona Cut" Is the Angled Bob Haircut Trend Taking Over Your Instagram Feed

I can always count on my Instagram feed to help me stumble upon a hair trend or moment that stops me dead in my tracks and often leads me down a rabbit hole. First it was the knotless box braids that practically took over last year, and now it's the geometric curly bob haircut that may or may not just inspire my next trip to the salon. The style in question, also known as the "Mona Cut," is somewhat of a signature of New York City-based stylist Mona Baltazar. Baltazar has become well-known on s...

How Deleting Instagram for 30 Days Saved my Sanity

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - By now, it’s no surprise that 2019 was a pretty rough year for me personally. It was exacerbated by a difficult breakup at the end of the year, some financial problems, and a general malaise from all the news of the world. By the time December 1st rolled around, I had pretty much checked out for the year—unable and unwilling to do much work, and just generally ~ tired. Every little thing was affecting my mood;...
