Like every year, the cast of a popular Broadway musical performed during the Macy’s Day Parade. Like every year, flamboyant men in elaborate costumes lipsynced and danced and wore high heels. What was so different about it this time? Well, it was the cast of Kinky Boots– a musical about drag queens. More

I found myself alone at Mad Myrna’s, Alaska’s biggest gay cabaret and nightclub, exactly two weeks after my divorce was finalized. I had married my first boyfriend after an impossibly trite high school romance at the much-too-young age of 18, filled with the sort of hopeful nonsense that love is all you need. After 6 years, it turned out we both needed much more than that, and called it quits. More
The prolific RuPaul has a new music video out. It’s called “Responsitrannity” and it’s basically a commercial for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, but it’s so fab that I just can’t get mad at it. In the video, RuPaul dances around in a magical Lisa Frank spacescape with famous friends and show contestants alike. There’s sass, fierceness, and much vivacious exuberance. The overarching message? Anyone can be a star, even you! (Only one person can win RuPaul’s Drag Race, however.) Check out the outfits, then put the song on full blast and a have yourself a Friday afternoon no-pants dance off. You’ve earned it! More

Photographer Leland Bobbé has a transfixing series of portraits called Half-Drag, each featuring a real New York City drag queen half made-up. For a culture so identified by its bombastic use of hair and makeup, it’s arresting to see the men beneath. Says Bobbé: “I had previously done a shot [similar to these] of burlesque performer Doctor Flux and I thought why not do something similar using real New York City drag queens. I got great feedback [on the initial portrait] so I decided to reach out to other drag queens using Facebook as my main means of communication. My shot with Flux wasn’t this tight but I thought that by shooting very tight I could really emphasize the difference between the drag side and the man side. I’ve now shot four people with many more on the way. We’ll see where this takes me…” More
When reading W‘s art and fashion issue, you might want to pay close attention to the pages and pages of ads you normally skip through to get to the editorial content. This is because, scattered among the ads for actual products, are nine completely fake ads for fake products shot by the wonderful Steven Meisel. They star such familiar faces as Karen Elson, Linda Evangelista, and good old Joan Rivers, and I happen to think they’re a pretty brilliant marriage of fashion and art. More

Various reports claim that Bravo is adding a new city to its series: Real Housewives of Miami. Bravo has not yet confirmed the statement, but several news outlets say that filming for the season has already wrapped up. Real Housewives of Miami was reportedly slated to be another show, but it has been adopted by the Housewives franchise. An insider says that the show will be, “a tamer, sexier show.” To which I say: if it’s tame, we don’t want any! More table-flipping please. More
Ru Paul, you taught us how to wear fake eyelashes. We owe a lot to the drag queens, not just because they reviewed the Oscars so well for us this year but because they taught us about sparkling. And, without … More
