Trixie Mattel, the cast of ‘Ratched,’ queer out the vote,

Did you know our gay agenda includes making gay videos? We love bringing together our friends and favorite celebrities, so check us out on YouTube and hit that subscribe button to make sure you don’t miss any of this content. From entertainment interviews, to comedy with your favorite queens, to travel inspiration for your post-COVID life, we’ve got you covered. Scroll down to check out some highlights from this month.

Why are you voting?

We asked 47 of our friends, including BenDelaCreme, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Tom Lenk, Nico Tortorella, Blossom C. Brown, James Bland, Kit Williamson, and Scott Evans why they are voting this year and here are their 47 answers. Watch, and remember to vote by November 3rd!

 

Cynthia Nixon, Sarah Paulson, and Sharon Stone

It takes a lot for us to get star struck. But these three ladies together almost blew our mind. Of course, they need little introduction. Sarah Paulson became a major star with American Horror Story, and went on to win an Emmy for her work in American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson. Cynthia Nixon became an icon with her work on Sex in the City, for which she took home an Emmy of her own. She also ran for Governor of New York in 2018. Sharon Stone, long considered one of the sexiest women in Hollywood history, became a star through films including Basic Instinct, Sliver, and her Oscar-nominated turn in Casino. In other words, we have The Supreme, a Very Capable Lesbian and the woman we try to imitate every time we get a date (see also: Basic Instinct). It’s a lot to process.

That’s Our Sally

We hope when Broadway comes back it involves a whole lot more of Trixie Mattel and Adrian Anchondo. My, but it’s warm in here!

SAN FRANCISCO STORIES

We can’t wait to travel again, but in the meantime, it’s nice to visit San Francisco via our video series SAN FRANCISCO STORIES. This edition features George McCalman, the artist behind Illustrated Black History.

Handsome men generally drive us crazy. But not like this.

Veteran actors Finn Wittrock and Jon Jon Briones both score another hit with Ratched, the new Netflix horror-thriller series about the famed villainous nurse of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. The show arrives on Netflix September 18.

Whitrock, of course, rose to fame with his roles on American Horror StoryAmerican Crime Story: Versace, and most recently, Judy. Viewers will also recognize Briones from American Horror Story and American Crime Story: Versace, as well as from his vast theatrical resume, most notably from his turn in the 2017 revival of Miss Saigon on Broadway.

Now the pair return to horror with Ratched. In the show, Briones plays Dr. Hannover, the put-upon supervisor of an insane asylum. Wittrock plays Edward Tullison, a mass murderer, and Hannover’s latest obsession. Both characters captivated us, and left us wondering: who in the series is sane, and who is not? For that matter, who is good, and who is bad?

We sat down with the two handsome stars to chat about the show, their roles, and the nature of sanity. Ratched debuts September 18.
