Today, during a writing break, I took to Google and typed with fury. “TOM HOLLAND?!” I demanded of the search engine. You see, I had just watched this video from Lip Sync Battle in which the Spiderman star performs extraordinary choreography to Rihanna’s pop masterpiece “Umbrella.” Now I have watched it several times,…
As Mike Pence, Satan’s meticulously groomed undersecretary, lurches toward what may be the most powerful vice-presidency in history, we have to move to protect what’s ours—our bodies, our civil rights, our ability to put on a giant wig and heavy contour and lip sync to Gloria Estefan in front of RuPaul.
RuPaul’s Drag Race might be entering its 8th season (and about to hit its 100th episode), but—from the look of this trailer—the new queens’ engines have yet to lose power.
PEARL WAS ROBBED, OKURRRRR? The Brooklyn drag queen has been living out the injustices of having not won last season’s RuPaul’s Drag Race DESPITE being the most lovely queen and sexiest boy and spiritually closest to everyone’s favorite ‘luded-out housewives in Valley of the Dolls. But now, the best Brits over at Dazed
This weekend, the 4th annual Bushwig will celebrate the “queer drag and music thriving in Brooklyn” during a 3-day festival in Bushwick - the Brooklyn neighborhood where it gets its name. There will be queens, there will be music, and—most importantly—there will be so much good fucking hair.
At Monday night’s Diary of a Teenage Girl premiere, star Alexander Skarsgard walked the carpet in full-on, gold-lamé, big-wigged drag. He was giving a little Krystal Carrington, a little Dynasty meets Hedwig, a little Farrah Fawcett’s been at Studio 54 too long and it’s only 3 AM.
The drag queen called Alaska Thunderfuck has just released her debut album, Anus. Intrigued, we listened together and had a chat about it, song by song. Listen along with us over at Billboard.
RuPaul crowned his Season 7 winner Monday night. What the hell happened?

The Austrian recording artist and drag queen has released a biography called Being Conchita: We Are Unstoppable, which talks about how she wore a skirt in kindergarten and her…
On Monday night, beloved director and gross-out camp icon John freaking Waters was one of the guest judges on Drag Race. In honor of his blessed presence, RuPaul brought out the big guns: the queens were tasked to reenact scenes from iconic Waters movies starring none other than Divine—in musical form. It resulted in…
For RuPaul's Drag Race fans, the "Snatch Game" episode is basically our birthdays. Based on the old game show The Match Game—a choice which hearkens back to Ru's obsession with television of the '70s and '80s—each queen is tasked with impersonating a personality of their choice and competing in a fashion that shows…
Now that it's the second episode and we're beginning to meander into the gooey pink insides of the meat of RuPaul's Drag Race, the queens are starting to show their true colors—and almost always, that color is the snippy, grabby hue of cattiness. Yes, I know I just mixed a metaphor. My brain is just so rattled by all…
Facebook, the home to over 50 gender identity options, has taken a bit of a bigoted turn this week by suspending the profiles of drag queens whose accounts are under their stage names. Artists are being forcefully logged out and left messages providing instructions on how to change their stage names to their legal…

Saint Hoax, an artist consumed by "Poplitical Infatuation" developed a series entitled War Drags You Out, study of sorts, mashing up political h and drag culture, two spheres that are far more similar than one would initially think. Saint Hoax explains:
Get into it: RuPaul's Drag Race Season Six begins airing next month, and this new trailer is sickening, hunty.
There's a new sneak peek promo for the sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race, which begins airing on LOGO in February. If you can see beyond the makeup and wigs (you can't), one of the contestants may look familiar — he was on American Idol in 2008.
