WATCH: Mike Taveira wears a singlet and gets slapped with a leather crop to satisfy his curiosities

Mike Taveira has been feeling very curious lately. In his new music video, the pansexual singer reveals the many layers to his complex sexuality. “Curious,” which was released yesterday, depicts Taveira in a variety of, ahem, steamy situations with drag queens, cis gay men, cis straight women, non-binary lovers, and trans women. “I never had a pansexual person to look up to,” he tells Billboard. “So I’m doing this for the people who need someone to look up to.” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { Ad...

US LGBTQ and Pride events in 2020

Let’s get one thing straight — LGBTQ people know how to throw one hell of a party, and in the United States, there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to curating a queer shindig. From ski-slope soirees to fetish-themed festivals, the only thing more difficult than choosing which events to attend in 2020 is choosing who to vote for in the Democratic primary. Luckily, choosing from this list of epic LGBTQ gatherings is a win-win situation. Editor’s note: Queer culture doesn’t begin and e...

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...

From Love Is Blind to The Circle, Netflix Is Getting Terrifyingly Good at Reality TV

If you plan to take “Netflix and chill” literally this Valentine’s Day, then rejoice, for the platform provides. In the tradition of risible cable reality hits like Married at First Sight and 90 Day Fiancé, its new “social experiment” Love Is Blind follows couples who’ve been thrust on the fast track to marriage. The twist is that they don’t lay eyes on each other until they’re engaged; each “date” consists solely of a chat between one man and one woman lounging in separate “pods.” (As is t...

Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds takes his fight for LGBTQ rights all the way to Capitol Hill

Dan Reynolds just upped his ally game tenfold. The Imagine Dragons frontman recently took a trip to Washington, D.C., where he met with lawmakers about banning conversion therapy nationwide once and for all. Reynolds was joined by Neon Trees’ Tyler Glenn and RuPaul‘s Drag Race’s Carmen Carrera. The trio met with several lawmakers, including Rep.

RuPaul visits the library

  RuPaul hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend and one of the skits featured him visiting the San Diego Public Library for a little reading time. He tackles such children’s classics as Madeline, Corduroy, Eloise,  James and the Giant Peach and Harriet the Spy. Absolutely hilarious. I’m still laughing at his take on the dust jacket illustration for Madeline which he says “I have bad news child, the Eiffel Tower is not in the woods. You better draw France right, bitch.”   Watch: Cli...

These Sketches From RuPaul’s SNL Debut Left Me In Tears

Please, I could watch RuPaul verbally destroy children’s books all day This past weekend marked two historical events: the first time a foreign language film has won the Academy Award for Best Picture (get on down with your bad self, Bong Joon-ho!) and the Saturday Night Live hosting debut of the Queen of Drag herself, RuPaul Charles. As any fan of RuPaul could’ve predicted, he was a force to be reckoned with and killed in every sketch he appeared in. Most folks at least know him as a rec...

RuPaul’s Reading to Kids and General Fabulousness Kept a Messy ‘Saturday Night Live’ from Bombing Completely

RuPaul is a reality TV sensation thanks to his own competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race. It should come as no surprise that RuPaul brought some of his trademark style and sass to Saturday Night Live in his hosting debut. Unfortunately, it was somewhat hindered by messy direction and poor timing throughout the episode. Thankfully, it didn’t keep a couple sketches from standing out and bringing some big laughs, even if most of the episode was middling to perplexing. Let’s run through the best an...

Where to drink in LGBTQ London

London has an LGBTQ scene steeped in history, with queer pubs dating back as far as the 17th century. From glitzy cocktail lounges to dingy drag dens, London’s scene is one of the most vibrant and hedonistic on the planet. Beyond the world of cocktails, there are countless reasons why LGBTQ travelers are drawn to England’s capital. West End shows, avant-garde shopping opportunities, and historical sights galore being just a few of them. Soho has the highest density of pubs and bars, but a wi...

LGBTQ travel in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City is queer — and not just in the “Donny Osmond singing and dancing in a rainbow-colored coat” kind of way. It’s queer because it defies simple categorization. Although there are 1.2 million residents, SLC feels like a small town where everybody knows your name. In the height of summer, you can burn in the brown desert hills of downtown only to freeze by piles of snow in the verdant Wasatch Mountains 45 minutes away. Most importantly, Salt Lake City is both a conservative Mormon m...

Did Adam Driver drag out his SNL monologue to cut transphobic skit?

If you’re a fan of Adam Driver’s brooding intensity, you probably enjoyed his recent hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. But a line during his opening monologue, interpreted by the live audience as a joke, is now making fans wonder — was a transphobic skit really slated to close out the show? It’s tough to say, but the evidence could point to the possibility that a sketch was cut from the close of the show due to time. The episode ended with musical guest Halsey’s second performance, which brea...
