Crystal Methyd spills the T on Drag Race season 12 and plans for “world domination”

Crystal Methyd may have not taken home the crown like she promised on I’m That Bitch, but she did get one bit right: that fans would come out in droves to scream her name. The Missouri-based performer won the hearts of Drag Race viewers around the world with her infectious personality and kooky, unconventional aesthetic, earning a place in the coveted final three alongside Jaida Essence Hall and Gigi Goode. She also turned RuPaul into an uncontrollable fangirl with her El Debarge-esque mullet, and delivered one of the most batshit…

Black Trans Lives Matter: Incredible charities you can donate to right now

Transgender people – particularly Black transgender women – face disproportionate levels of violence and discrimination around the world.

Introducing 2020CAPSULE: A unique year in Pride, documented

This year’s Pride season marks a unique period in history for the journey towards queer liberation. For the first time in more than 50 years, LGBTQ+ people who live in the Global North won’t be able to march in a Pride parade, celebrate with their community in big numbers, and be able to support and uplift each other in physical spaces like we have been able to in the past. This period of time will give many the opportunity time to reflect on what matters most to them, a moment…

9 documentaries about racism and Black lives white people should be watching right now

It’s not the job of Black people to teach us how to be anti-racist. In the wake of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of white officers in Minneapolis and subsequent protests across the US against racism and police brutality, white people are rightfully trying to become better allies to the Black community. While it’s important to donate to organisations like these or joining peaceful protests, it’s imperative to educate yourself on racism and Black lives whether that’s through online articles, social media or books (see our list here). If…

COVID-19 amplifies vulnerability of LGBTQ+ people globally

It is well documented that in times of crisis those who are most marginalized tend to suffer disproportionately compared to the broader population. COVID-19 is no exception.  For LGBTQ+ people this is an especially difficult time. On any given day, we face violence, discrimination, harassment, and a lack of acceptance. Even by those we love. Even in countries with explicit policy and legislative protections in place. In over a third of the world, our identities are criminalized. And in times of crisis all of these injustices are amplified, because we…

JoJo wants fans to “find strength” in her new album Good to Know

“I always dreamed of this moment in time where women are much more in the driver’s seat.” It’s been four years since JoJo released her comeback album Mad Love, and no, she wasn’t “sleeping” on her fans or using the time to relax by the pool with an Aperol Spritz (although she’d love to be doing that right now, and same). Since 2016, the superstar has flip-flopped between labels, embarked on several worldwide tours, purchased a new home and ended a relationship after ‘cheating’ on her boyfriend, as well as…

How can queer nightlife survive the coronavirus pandemic?

For many LGBTQ+ people, nightlife is an essential part of finding and accepting yourself. In a world that often polices who we can love and what our bodies should look like, queer venues and club nights offer a space where we can go to be ourselves and find others like us. But the coronavirus pandemic that’s sweeping the globe has forced all non-essential businesses, including bars and clubs, to close down, taking away the places that many rely on to find joy, love and friendship. Though nightlife may be seen…

Widow Von’Du has an important message for Drag Race trolls

“I definitely received some online hate, which isn’t what I planned for.” Widow Von’Du wants ‘fans’ of RuPaul’s Drag Race to check themselves before spreading hate online. On last week’s episode, the Missouri-born performer became the seventh queen to sashay from season 12 after failing to impress the judges in a presidential debate to determine who would be crowned America’s First Drag Queen President. Despite leaving audiences slain week after week thanks to her jaw-dropping dance and rap numbers, and in tears due to her emotional backstory, the Widow Von’Du…
