Thanks to Jason Russo of HeyMrJason Photography for capturing myself with RuPaul's Drag Star winner Sharon Needles at the Hookie Awards at Roseland on Friday. When Sharon told Next magazine that she was excited about meeting me, I decided to actually take a shower in preparation for the event! And ... More >>
Despite debuting right off the heels of the K-Pop phenomenon "Gangnam Style," Fashion Week's Concept Korea 2013 collective held its own on Thursday night with five new buzzworthy designers...and thankfully, they didn't play Psy's freaking song over the speakers. As the show was running late and the ... More >>

Did you smell deep-fried rabbit last night on West 42nd Street? Well, for her alleged 50th birthday, drag legend Lady Bunny got roasted by her Hot Mess costars, along with others (like little old me) at xl, and the fur flew so hard it made Roseanne's TV roast look like the Kennedy Center Honors! H ... More >>
I've met them all and narrowed it down to these 10 amazing A.A. specimens:
Back in another decade, before any drag races were on TV, we'd perform them every night in the clubs for each other's limitless delectation. "Everybody say 'love' ", RuPaul would exclaim, and I'd gamely obey, while grabbing her slender waistline for a glamorous pose like the one above. Then we'd s ... More >>
It's Hot Mess, the drag revue that happens every Wednesday at 9 PM at the new club xl. It's great to see the drag queens in an elaborate show done in a high-tech setting, with state of the art projections, a large stage, and cabaret seating. It's what they deserve!
Today's fast-paced drag-queen superstars break all the rules. No longer are they in love with wonderfully kinky CEOs, go-go boys, hairstylists, or big, scary pimps. RuPaul, in fact, says the love of his life is a dude who lives on a ranch in Wyoming.
Make them the cutest boys that weve ever seen

Today, DNA Info reports that the area for possible lan ... More >>
Honey Davenport has the look, the moves, and the spirit to give the drag performance scene some zingy new energy. And this, her virgin La Daily Musto interview, will certainly propel her to the top of Gotham's glitterati. Here's how it went down:
Musician/actor/talker/personality Henry Rollins has been in touch Iann Robinson for years, long before Robinson's days as the MTV VJ Horatio Sanz once spoofed on Saturday Night Live. Since Henry Rollins headlines Irving Plaza tonight and tomorrow, we asked Robinson to get his old acquaintance on the ... More >>
The 37th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which took place in D.C. last week, came at a happy time for conservatives, what with the recent election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts, the increased visibility of the Tea Party movement due to their own recent convention, and a wav ...

Another onetime chart-topper, like an Olivia Newton-John or a Deborah Gibson?
Plus Nancy Giles plays with her hair. And acid redux: Elliot Tiber and Demetri Martin talk about Taking Woodstock.
LaBute's stimulating latest; Jill Hennessy in the Lymelife.
Check out this delightful '80s clip done by the late, lamented Tom Rubnitz, in which a bunch of whacked out East Village drag queens like RuPaul, Lady Bunny, Lahoma, and Sister Dimension conspire to make a ham sandwich in the most surreal yet wildly appetizing manner imaginable. Like what you saw? T ... More >>
Our first lady may have some controversial sartorial taste, but at least she goes for bold designers who are one of us, if you know what I mean. Gone are the uptown days of Oscar de la Whatshisname and Arnold Isaacs-spelt-backwards. Michelle favors kooky clothiers like the different-drum-following T ... More >>
That's right, folks. I may not exactly be any kind of journalist, but I am definitely a fucking lipstick.

How many steps does it take to make a world?
Tidbits that will make you rise again
I have a feeling I know why I didn't get an official DVD of RuPaul's Starrbooty! movie in the mail; I'm quoted on the back of the box saying the film is "kickass," when all I actually wrote is that Ru plays "a kickass Pam Grier type"! I hadn't even seen the film at that point! But you know what? I'm ... More >>
