How To: RuPaul’s Drag Con ’17

I’ve known the incredibly popular Latrice Royale, breakout star of RuPaul’s Drag Race, for almost 20 years now. I lived in Ft. Lauderdale late-90s and she was just getting started in her career, tearing up stages and making waves. We met through a close connection, clicked right away and stayed in contact in various capacities throughout the years. When I competed for Mr. Gay USofA my first year I had Latrice drop a few fierce soundbites into my dance mix. They have magically found their way into other mixes since. I knew she would be coming to Drag Con…

Interviewing Jeremy Fontanet Cullens

To see Jeremy walk in a room one can’t help but notice him. His stats you’ll find below but to me and I bet anyone who witness his stature strut by would be in awe at the very sight of him. He looks like an great adonis walking amongst us simple mortals. He is undeniably shy and humble, something hard to believe considering his beauty but it’s very true. I’ve known his husband Scott Cullens for a good few years now and once we finished our third interview together for the blog I knew I wanted interview his husband. …

A Gay Man’s Opinion of Election ’16

This story has a different ending than what I had hoped and planned for originally. It’s been hard not to comment and curse at the chaos happening in our country, the United States of America. To be quite honest it’s been difficult to focus on because it’s all so ludicrous. I’m a true democrat and I voted for Hillary Clinton. She is and was my choice for POTUS. Hillary has the most job experience of anyone who has ever ran for the office before and was/is more prepared than any of her opponents. …

Palm Springs Pride 2016 in Review

Another Pride in Palm Springs down for the record books. The annual festival began on Friday, however, it’s super gay in this city every day so that’s that. Saturday I ran downtown to check out the stage we were performing on and to support my fellow entertainers. The sunshine was coming down from the skies above so […]

The Pulse of Our Gay Community

After the senseless tragedy in Orlando last month at Pulse Nightclub, I knew I had to do something to help those in need and ones who must carry on. When I woke up that morning on June 12 and read the news on social media about the shooting that left 49 innocent victims dead and dozens wounded I was in shock. I didn’t react emotionally at first going on about my day. But then news continued to pour in through media sources and details unfolded. …

Discovering Who Caitlyn Jenner Is

When I first heard the rumors throughout the media that Olympian star and athletic hero Bruce Jenner was beginning his transition to becoming a woman, I admit it was hard for me to believe. I just didn’t see it coming. Sure, in photos we clearly could see that he had what appeared to be some touchups or face work as Bruce and let his hair grow out. Everyone I’ve ever known to transition took a longer road than what seemed to be ahead of who we now know as Caitlyn. And in the same breath I wasn’t around her to witness or know her personally so I could never answer to what she has been going through. …

Homeless LGBTQ Youth – How To Help!

Every once in a while I like to turn the focus and attention toward serious matters affecting our amazing community of brothers and sisters in need. I received a wonderful email from a sweet girl names Janessa Dayan who works with a truly giving group called Goodshop and Goodsearch. Their company motto is “You Shop. You Save. We Give.” I’ve placed the entire press release here for you to read through. I hope you take the time to check these organizations out. Happy Gay Pride Month! …

STEVEN MICHAEL IS MY NAME, BOO!

Steven Michael is my name and that’s the way it is. I Google’d myself (insert dirty joke here) and man, I came up feeling ehhh. Where am I? I’m here, dammit! There’s my social media moments Twitter and Facebook but Lady Google has slapped me with the shade of it all. I blog my finger tips to their very nubs and Googlezilla really serves a platter of crickets to many of us in the internet world. If you’re not a major player in the game it’s difficult to get noticed. Oh, Mommie Googlest… I am not, one of your… FANS! …

SORDID STORIES OF THE GAY PARTY CIRCUIT

When you live in the Coachella Valley, as do I, Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party is the yearly event that causes the most stir, buzz and uproar around gay Palm Springs. I do consider myself a pioneer of sorts when it comes to the circuit party’s humble beginnings. Living in Atlanta during the mid-90s when the circuit started hitting hard across the lands and parties with themes rose from the foundation of such solid events as Hotlanta River Expo, Morning Party…
