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...

Aquarium of the Pacific’s Otter Bowl challenges otters to a buffet chow down

Athletes of the highest caliber gathered under the same stadium Sunday, Feb. 2, for a true test of skill and endurance. No, not the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs in Miami for Super Bowl LIV — we’re talking the Aquarium of the Pacific’s sixth annual Otter Bowl. At 3:30 p.m., around the same time as the big game kicked off, the aquarium’s four otters — Chloe, Maggie, Betty and Ollie — retired from their exhibits to the “locker rooms” to get ready. They reconvened at the Northern Paci...

All The Best Times Pitbull Was the Ultimate Hype Man

“What happens in Miami,” Pitbull famously said in 2012 song “Last Night,” “never happened.” Recently, he’s been repeating the phrase as hype builds around Super Bowl 2020 in the Florida city. It’s a classic Mr. 305-ism — or Mr. Worldwide-ism, as he is even more commonly known these days. Pitbull, real name Armando Christian Pérez, has built a superlative identity for himself around both his musical prowess during his multi-decade career as a rapper, entrepreneur and party-maker and his abil...

Friend of Silvio Horta pens powerful account of TV exec’s battles with meth

Silvio Horta (Photo: @silvioh | Instagram) A friend of Silvio Horta has penned a lengthy and powerful account of the TV showrunner’s battles with addiction. Andy Maher, who’d known Horta since 2010, wrote the piece for the Advocate. Maher not only wanted to share memories of the talented man he knew but also to alert other gay men to the dangers of meth.

Blue Ridge Bank N.A. Hiring for Major Reverse Mortgage Expansion [Sponsored]

For prospective borrowers shopping for reverse mortgages, the positive impact of a good reputation simply cannot be overstated. It’s exactly that fact that encouraged Virginia-based Blue Ridge Bank N.A. to enter the reverse mortgage business, and is leading it now to focus on growth of the division both in terms of new hires, and loan volume.  That longstanding reputation coupled with an effective, “well-oiled” reverse mortgage unit will translate into borrower confidence, and by extension, r...

Watch Ryan Reynolds And Sandra Bullock Fight For Betty White’s Love

This is definitely the most intense rendition of the birthday song I’ve ever heard Today is a very important day. On the seventeenth of January in 1922, the legendary Betty White was born. The Golden Girls star has been on television for over eighty years, and although she’s been in our homes and making us laugh for, well, our entire lives, there’s still a lot to learn about her and from her. For example, did you know that according to Betty White, the secret to a long life is vodka and ho...

MY FAVORITE THINGS – 2019

2019 was a good balance between new music I discovered/enjoyed vs. old tunes I’m continually finding via records. I find that raising a teenager helps with the former and while I would never try to pass myself off – these days – as having a finger of the musical zeitgeist, I think it’s valuable to stay engaged with new music coming out. Anyways…I’m going to flip this from the round-ups of the last few years and start with the old tracks I gave heavy run to last year. (Not in ranked order) 1. The...

Sunday in Review

We had another great service here at Vision Baptist Church this week! Sunday morning Sean Chappell did the offering message. He preached from 2 Corinthians 9, explaining that God doesn’t care about the amount of money we give. God cares about our attitude towards giving, and we need to make sure when we give, we give cheerfully. I preached from Genesis 3. My message was about how Christmas is about God giving His life to pay our sin debt and then giving us the beautiful gift of salvatio...

IDFA Film Review: ‘I Love You I Miss You I Hope I See You Before I Die’

“I’m worried, Mom,” says preschool-age Jade, as she nuzzles her mother Betty’s leg in a down-at-heel backyard. When pressed as to the source of her worry, the answer is both plain and quite troubling: “I don’t know.” Inchoate anxiety and a wild, fanciful imagination vie for space in a young girl’s psyche in “I Love […]

WATCH: Queerty readers reveal the biggest lies they’ve told at ‘The Good Liar’ advance screening

Ahead of its November 15 theatrical release, Queerty hosted a crowd of queer creators and readers for an advance screening of The Good Liar at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles. And at the expense of spoilers (we would never!), this film has more twists and turns than Britney Spears and Drew Barrymore’s careers combined. Acting gods Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen star in the new thriller, from Oscar-winner Bill Condon. The Good Liar follows a con-Juan named Roy (McKellen) who romances a wealthy ol...
