RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 9 – “BREASTWORLD”

What happened to our girls? After last week’s dynamic Cher Rusical, slap-happy mini-challenge and glitterific runway, last night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race felt like everyone spiked their Absolut berry acai cocktails with a hefty helping of Ambien. (Or at least Flaccida.) It was an off-week for even the strongest competitors, yielding a middling episode up until a thrilling…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 8 – “THE UNAUTHORIZED RUSICAL”

After one of the weaker episodes of the season last week, this week’s RuPaul’s Drag Race delivers a knockout. A spectacular runway was preceded by a hilarious mini-challenge and a Rusical fit for a Kween. The episode featured some great moments with the queens bonding and an excellent lip sync that ended the episode on a high note. What…

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE SEASON 2 PERFECTLY EXPLORES RACISM IN THE GAY DATING SCENE

Whites only. Into chocolate. Chubby chasers. Rice queens. If you’re gay and not exactly the European standard of beauty, chances are you’ve seen one or more of these phrases on dating apps and floating around in the real world. Netflix original series Dear White People isn’t afraid to start uncomfortable conversations, and this season, that includes racism in the…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 7 – “SNATCH GAME”

It’s safe to say Snatch Game is the most anticipated episode of every season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The signature challenge blends so many fan-favorite elements, like humor, pop-culture savvy, and celebrity skewering. The queens are tasked with bringing their best, needing to pull off a look, a point-of-view and be lightning quick on their feet….

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 3 – “TAP THAT APP”

Another week, another hokey acting challenge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. It’s easy to forget how many of these early-season episodes are devoted to large, group acting challenges that don’t do most these girls any favors. Wake me up when it’s time for Snatch Game, I guess. Unlike last week’s silly lip-sync, this time the comedy is…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE: SEASON 10, EPISODE 2 – “PharmaRusical”

After the overly-complex (and controversial) end of All Stars(we’re all still salty about that, right?), it’s nice to see Drag Race get back to basics. Last night’s episode was chock full of the sort of silly slapstick that’s this show’s (sprouted, low-carb) bread and (grass-fed, clarified) butter. I’m thrilled to see the return of the mini-challenges (even though this…

13 REASONS WHY STARS ISSUE A POWERFUL TRIGGER WARNING AHEAD OF SEASON 2

Netflix’s controversial teen drama 13 Reasons Why debuted last year to equal parts applause and backlash. If you haven’t seen the Selena Gomez-produced show yet, it’s a heartwrenching series following Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) who commits suicide and leaves behind a series of tapes exposing those who wronged her.    While some critics loved the rawness in how…
