RuPaul says the “drag fun ended” when he got famous

“When I got famous, that’s when the drag fun ended for me, honestly. I couldn’t terrorize y’all’s neighborhoods anymore because I became the face of drag! I’ve always been ambitious and I’ve always liked to look under the hood to see how things actually worked. So I knew that if I was was going to do drag and make it above 14th Street so to speak, I had to calculate the image. What I did was I had one part Dolly Parton to two parts Cher, one part David Bowie and a big heaping spoonful of Dian...

Cheering Report – 2016 Marine Corps Marathon

Huge congrats to all of the Marine Corps Marathon and 10K runners!  This race was no joke this year.  Ridiculously warm temperatures.  I think it got up to 81 degrees out there.  Considering that we had our first frost earlier in the week, that’s just insane.  And definitely tough on the runners. Yes, I was the girl handing out SunRype on the course. This year was definitely a bit different.  Normally, we’re out early, catch the majority of the 10K racers and then wait to cheer on the maratho...

Writings From September 13, 2001

9/13/01 Looking down Greenwich St towards the vacant sky where the WTC once stood The following was written on September 13, 2001. On Thursday, I finally went back to check on my loft. I live in Tribeca about 10 blocks from the Trade Center site. I had left my windows open when I left town, so I was concerned about smoke and debris. The drive back on Thursday afternoon was unobstructed, since the bridges and tunnels had only recently been reopened. At 21st Street, traffic was diverted away fro...

9/11, Gratitude and The New York Islands on Two Wheels

I have New York on my brain. Maybe the third time really is a charm, as my August visit was my third recent trip east to help my father through back surgery and rehab. Or maybe it's just that the place still sings to me, perhaps clearer than ever, after thirty years away. To close the New York deal, I am reading Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bronx is Burning , about the 1977 blackout, New York politics and the Yankees. The excellent read which I started on my flight back to the Best Coast is transp...

Image: AP With the L train shutdown looming , some legislators are putting forward a radical proposal to make life easier for crosstown commuters: re-think 14th Street as a corridor for buses, bicycles, and pedestrians, with one large section that would blocked to cars entirely.

A Perfect Day in Washington, D.C.

I’ve lived in Washington for (gulp) 23 years—and something I’ve learned in all that time: This is one great city to visit. I recently had the honor of writing Nat Geo’s forthcoming book Walking Washington, D.C., and reveled in the chance to traverse the District to rediscover old favorites through the eyes of a tourist and dig up treasures I never even knew existed. Here’s the recipe for a perfect day in one of the world’s most vibrant capital cities: Morning Start your day off with breakfas...
