Eat, Drink Tito’s & Be Merry

Some people get into the holiday spirit. Us, we prefer getting into the holiday spirits. No, we’re not talking Dickensian ghosts from varying points in time. We’re talking booze—ice-cold, put-some-color-in-your-cheeks booze. And as proof that not everything coming out of Texas is a Ted Cruz-worthy buzz kill, Tito’s Handmade Vodka gives us…

Feeling pretty, witty and gay? And maybe ready for some kick-ass music? Then get ready for some Westside stories in Netflix’s newest unscripted series, which debuted yesterday on the entertainment platform.

Got Milk?

Happy (hopefully) Election Day! We won’t really know how to feel until later tonight or even tomorrow, but with politics on the brain, it’s perfect timing for a new book that chronicles how one man changed everything for our community. The Children of Harvey Milk by Andrew Reynolds chronicles how…

Home Is Where The Julia Is

We may never get a My Best Friend’s Wedding 2, but we have the next-best thing. Sorta. This Friday, Amazon’s Prime Video division premieres Homecoming starring Julia Roberts with Dermot Mulroney a little further down the casting list. But don’t expect any Dionne Warwick sing-alongs in this suspenseful, conspiracy-theory drama also featuring non-MBFW stars…

Burst Your Bubble

The Two Americas. We hear this term a lot these days, but it would be difficult denying the reality. Funny enough, we were just having a conversation with a friend yesterday about trying to “understand the other side” when expressing the grief and bewilderment of family members we love who…

F Us Gently With A Chainsaw

What’s old is new again, again. Last week we got the spin-off of a reboot in The Conners. This week, we’ll be treated to what might be the first-ever reboot of a reboot in Heathers. Originally slated to debut as a traditional weekly series earlier in the year, things changed quickly when…

Gray For Pay

As you might expect, we get pitched a lot of crowdfunding projects to write about. And most of them never make the cut. Be grateful. So you know when we do feature a crowdsourcing campaign that we truly believe in the product. Case in point: The Disappointments. Never have we laughed out loud…

Join The Tee Party

The only thing we like better than a graphic tee is ripping it off the hot guy wearing it. But we also enjoy sporting them ourselves nearly every day as part of our “writer uniform.” So we’re proud to introduce you to one of our favorite new gay-owned businesses, Monkey &…
