Director Ryan White reveals the double-edged sword of queer representation in ‘Visible: Out on TV’

Director Ryan White Ryan White doesn’t stop. The documentarian behind The Case Against 8 and The Keepers has enjoyed two consecutive Sundance Film Festivals with new movies having their premiere. Last year, we chatted with White about his acclaimed documentary Ask Dr. Ruth. His next feature, Assassins, comes out later this year. For the moment, though, White is focused on an epic television event. We mean that in two senses of the word. As produced by Wilson Cruz & Wanda Sykes, Visible: Out o...

Podcast #554: Babe Ruth and the World He Made

The Sultan of Swat. The Colossus of Clout. The King of Crash. The Great Bambino.  Babe Ruth died over 70 years ago, but his legend still lives on in big league stadiums and little league fields across America. While we know a lot about Ruth’s baseball career, little was known about his early life and how it shaped him to become America’s first superstar athlete and celebrity. My guest today sought to remedy that in her recently published biography: The Big Fella: Babe Ruth and the World He Cr...

The Best Movies For Getting Over Your Ex

Listen. Our goal here is simple: to help you curate the perfect Rolodex of movies that will help you deal if or when things with your loved one fall apart. And, to help us in our quest for catharsis, we’ve consulted the very academic Kübler-Ross model of handling grief, which divides the process into five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance (because, above all else, we here at Refinery29 are nothing if not academics, of course).There are many different types of breakup...

You Won't Believe The Secret Ingredient In Milk Makeup's New Mascara

We should have known when Milk Makeup launched its Roll + Blot hemp papers that it was only a matter of time before the brand would bring us the next best development in 4/20-friendly beauty. But while we could have foreseen the cool-kid company formulating, say, a line of chic eye drops, we weren't expecting that its latest cannabis-laced launch would actually be makeup... and mascara, at that.Aptly named Kush, this brand-new formula uses one special ingredient from the cannabis plant: CBD-ric...

Help and Promote Expansion

Whenever I speak to other business owners and ask them how they are doing, one thing I hear over and over is the following: “Things are going well and we are expanding.” In fact, I hear this statement so often, it is difficult to believe. It is as if the people believe that the only sign of a successful business is if it is expanding. The funny thing about this is that I get this response even when I know the opposite is really what is occurring. Companies state they are expanding even when t...

Burberry's Greatest Style Hits Over 17 Years

On Saturday evening, Christopher Bailey serenaded London Fashion Week with his swan song for Burberry after 17 years at the helm. His final message was one of unity, creating a rainbow version of the classic Burberry check in support of the LGBTQ+ community — a move the brand is following through on in a series of initiatives with trusts and organizations. “There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength and our creativity,” Bailey said.The epic 85-look...

The Best Netflix Original Series For You, Based On Your Sign

House of Cards, Netflix's first original scripted series, came out in 2013. In the four years that have followed, Netflix has become a powerhouse in developing intelligent, experimental, and above all, quality TV. There are the shows we know we already love, like Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things. Netflix also keeps rolling out astonishingly good content, like last year's American Vandal, a parody on the true crime genre set in a high school.Amid all this, how can you choose which Net...

Why Alison Brie Is Being Compared To Eleven From Stranger Things

As evidenced by shows like Stranger Things, Narcos, and One Day At a Time, Netflix loves the 80s. Not only do we get to revisit classic arcade games like Dig Dug and King's Lair in the town of Hawkins Indiana with the former, but we also have the chance to reimagine some of the decade's best beauty staples. And apparently, fans are claiming there's a sneaky crossover between two of the streaming service's biggest shows of the year, thanks to one rad — and very voluminous — hairstyle.This summer...

A Comprehensive Guide To Growing Out Your Pubic Hair

Public opinion on pubic hair has come a long way since the Renaissance. Back then, south-of-the-border fuzz was thought to be so uncivilized, women used depilatories formulated with arsenic to remove it. (The directions, according to a 1532 recipe: "Wash quickly with hot water so the flesh doesn't come off.") Those times, in the best interest of everyone's skin, are luckily behind us.Today, the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction. Plenty of celebrities, from Emma Watson to Amber Rose t...

Why Aren’t There More Pregnant Models On The Runway?

Since they burst on the scene a few years ago, Eckhaus Latta have made diversity their trademark —even before it was the hot topic on everyone's lives. On Saturday, the designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta presented their spring 2018 collection, and through the beautifully diverse cast that varied in age, race, body type, and gender, one model stood out in particular — as she was very pregnant. How’s that for body diversity?The woman is artist Maia Ruth, a director at Wide Rainbox, a contempora...

What "Shopping" At A Sperm Bank Is Really Like — According To Experts

If you think choosing a sperm donor is about as easy as narrowing down blue eyes or brown, you are way off. There are often pages upon pages of donor options, and it can be easy to get overwhelmed by choice — this is your future child, after all.And not only is there a near paralyzing amount of choice involved, but the process can be long and expensive, and loaded with medical jargon that can feel exclusionary. All that can breed misinformation and confusion. Let's un-confuse it all, shall we?F...

The Best Reads Of July Are Right Here

The thing about long hot summer days is that they aren't made for binge watching Netflix in front of the T.V. Admit it. You've got the air on high and it's hard to hear dialog over the fuzzy white noise and wind turbine whooshing. Which is why a book is actually a better buddy for the dog days of July, because the surround sound experience need not apply. It's just you, pages upon pages, and your brain, whiling away the hours. Ah, bliss.Per usual, we've got some reads on this month's docket we ...

Two years later, people are still protesting, urging Americans to continue to #SayHerName.Bland was arrested for not using a turn signal. The arresting officer called Bland "combative and uncooperative" in the arrest warrant, but was later indicted for perjury. He was fired from his job, but the charges against him were dropped.

Is Laura Dern's Diane The Only Reason To Keep Watching Twin Peaks?

The return of cult favorite Twin Peaks was heralded as one of the biggest television events of 2017. We were promised mind-bending new mysteries, classic David Lynch strangeness, and a whole lot of celebrity cameos. Technically, viewers have gotten all of the above from the Showtime revival, but not in the way any of us were expecting. Last night’s episode, "Part 9," officially brought Twin Peaks: The Return to its halfway mark, and the beloved Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn) is completely MIA, ou...

Twin Peaks: The Return Part 9 Recap: Let's Get Down To Briggs' Business

After last episode's colorless ride through time, I was looking forward to some regular Twin Peaks dealings — hanging with the sheriff, drinking the damn good coffee, histrionic women, you know the drill. And this episode delivered. Its primary directive is figuring out the nonsense happening with Major Briggs, father to Bobby Briggs and the man whose body has appeared in multiple locations since his disappearance 25 years ago. Most recently, his body popped up next to Ruth Davenport's disembod...

Pregnancy Tests Have Come A Long Way Since The '80s

GLOW, a new streaming series from Netflix, is inspired by the true story of the 1980's-era Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling show. But the wrestling isn't the only flashy element of the series that's grabbing our attention: The eighth episode features Alison Brie's character, Ruth, using a pretty unwieldy science experiment of a pregnancy test.If you were expecting to see a simple plastic stick like the ones we use today (albeit maybe in a more '80s color palette — avocado green, perhaps?), you may ...

R29 Binge Club: GLOW Episode 1-10 Recaps

At first glance, Netflix's best new original show doesn't look anything like the streaming service's tentpole dramedy about women, Orange Is The New Black.For one, GLOW is set in '80s Los Angeles, with most of the action going down in a wrestling ring. (Think leotards and leg warmers instead of orange jumpsuits; dreams of fame instead of freedom.)
