Meet The Juniors: Rising Drag Stars Harness the Power of Teamwork

I meet them as boys on an evening a week before Christmas, at Bakery Lorraine.

Growing up in Syracuse, New York, Daniel Donigan attended Catholic school and was an altar boy at his local church.

Both the Logo reality series and the 1973 musical transcended their early cult status to become icons of pop culture. In 2012, director Greg Hinojosa, then with the

Originally published in the San Antonio Current. Not unlike Orlando’s Gay Days at Walt Disney World — which annually attracts an estimated 50,000 color-coordinated attendees — Rey Lopez’s slightly smaller (he’s hoping for 5,000) fall signature Out in the Park functions as an over-the-top LGBT theme-park takeover. An instant hit built around the winning combination

Carmen Carrera Returns to SA

Although she first came to fame with stints on season 3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race  and RuPaul’s Drag U, Carmen Carrera has expanded her brand by becoming an actress, model, burlesque dancer, and advocate for transgender rights.

‘Straight Outta Oz’ Coming to Tobin Center

As scores of forgotten reality show cast-offs have proven, it takes a lot more than actual talent to make it in the world of entertainment.
