I’d see Larry Bird or Patrick Ewing pop on screen and turn to my partner and incredulously ask, “Wasn’t that guy in Space Jam?” Sure, I had watched the Warriors and Cavaliers face off a few times — enjoyed it even — and I had followed the controversy around LeBron James’ departure from Cleveland with fascination. But the 1998 Chicago Bulls? Never heard ...

Live drag show etiquette

Once upon a time , the only way to see a drag performance was to go to a gay bar. Aside from the occasional John Waters film featuring Divine, gown-clown court jesters were relegated to the stages of sacred queer establishments.

Like a gag-worthy costume reveal, drag transformed from holy queer subculture into secular sensation ov...

Post-lockdown life in Naples, FL

On Saturday , I took a vacation back to the real world.

A place where we only wore masks if it was Halloween or Mardi Gras, and the only fear we had was the fear of missing out. It wasn’t some far-off fantasy I had while laying on my couch during day 62 of quarantine, nor did I jump in a souped-up Delorean and ride a hoverbo...

Some streets in Le Puy-en-Velay are narrow. Very narrow. This one is called la rue traversière des Tables. I think that probably means something like The Tables Street Transverse, a street that intersects the rue des Tables and creates a short cut to another street.
