Being Trans Enough

As we are all aware, the trans* population is fairly small. This has obviously made it hard for us to unite and gain ground as a community over the years. With the Internet, trans* people have found it easier to talk and get to know one another. It has also facilitated our activism, and 2014 […]

This Open Thread Is Here For Bianca Del Rio

Kittens, let’s be real, reaaaal honest. It’s all about Bianca.

This Week in Misogyny is Doing the Stride of Pride

Because why are we still calling it a walk of shame anyway? Oh right, because people are terrible. Let’s see just how terrible people were this week! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

This Open Thread Dedicates Tuesday To Drag Race

Children, it hath returned.

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Finale 5.14, “This Is Not America’s Next Drag Three-Way”

This is the main event – are you ready?! Last night the world crowned the queen of drag! Well, one queen of drag. The fifth queen of drag. Not counting All-Stars. Or Ru. Okay, last night a crown was given to a drag queen, who was voted to be pretty nifty.

This Kiki Smells Like Drag Spirit. Come In and Party!

KIKI:  A kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves. It’s a gathering of sorts, where you gossip and talk about this and that.*

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Episode 5.11, “Alas… Earwax.”

The last four drag queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race are RoLaskaTox and Jinkx Monsoon. One of these things is not like the others, Persephoneers! Jinkx was sweating in her hidden places, knowing she was a lone fish in a hostile pond.

This Open Thread Is Dedicated To Alyssa Edwards

Alyssa Edwards? Who? Children, gather round this open thread, like little cub scouts here to learn-e-ded.

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Episode 5.10, “I Don’t Know But I’ve Been Told, Drag Queens Always Tuck and Fold!”

There are only five drag queens left on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and as Alaska put it, “It’s turned quickly from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants to Sisterhood of I’m Going to Kill You So I Can Win.” It’s getting ugly in there, kids! And that’s the best part!

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Episode 5.9, “You Telenovela, You Brought Her.”

Something fishy happened last week, blog friends. It was a real drag. I almost wigged out! Yes, RuPaul’s Drag Race was a repeat, but this week we’re back with all new entertainment, if not new puns. So tuck in and read my recap! Okay, I’m done.

You Are Cordially Invited to This Week’s Fishiest Free-For-All: RuPaul’s Drag Race Edition!

Hi there, Persephoneers! RuPaul’s Drag Race was a repeat last night (boo!) so this here’s a free-for-all for us to dish on what we think about the season so far. Or what you had for dinner last night. Seriously, who am I, the thread police? Chat about what you want – just mention sequins or wigs […]

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Episode 5.8, “Smells Like Drag Spirit”

I am on a heavy dose of cold meds, friends, so if this recap has a little extra whatthewhat, please bear with me. I’m slower than the time it took for Coco to finally remove her head from her butt and give winning RuPaul’s Drag Race the old college try. If she can come out […]

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Episode 5.7, “Tragedy Tomorrow — Comedy Tonight!”

Persephoneers, put a match to your pilot light, because we’re gonna have a roast up in here! Sadly, I cannot transmit any hot beef over the interwebs*, so you’ll have to be content with our favorite queens roasting Ru and the judges on this episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race!

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Episode 5.6, “A Group of Singing Drag Queens is Called a ‘Cacophony'”

There are only eight queens left, and it’s (as Alyssa put it) “balls to the wall” time. I guess that means (presumably) sixteen big balls stuck on the wall vying for favor from Ru. I think I just described the porn RuParody of this show.

Recap: RuPaul’s Drag Race, Episode 5.5, “Snatch A Falling Star and Put It In Your Hot Box”

Persephoneers, are your charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent ready for some truly hot snatch? No, sadly, I have not sent a sexy, adventurous person to your house to lift your spirits… but I am going to recap one of the best episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race: The Snatch Game!
