Saxon for Mayor

8/16/2022
Even though it does get pretty breezy here, Chicago got the nickname “The Windy City'' from its boisterous politicians who have a lot to say. Over the years, we’ve had many unusual folks run for political office, like the ACT-UP drag queen performance artist Joan Jett-Blakk who ran for Mayor of the Second City and then later tried to “Lick Bush'' in a run for the presidency. Following that great tradition, Chicago performance artist and drag queen Jezebel À GoGo, now known as J Saxon joins...

Muscle Worship for Entertainment - Andrew Dombos

7/26/2022
Bodybuilding is now a competitive sport, but its roots lie in show business.

Over a hundred years later, there’s a club night called FLEX in San Francisco’s leather bar Powerhouse, which...

Pride Marches On

6/22/2022
Ever since the Stonewall Riots ignited the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement in 1969, most major cities have had Pride Parades until the Covid Pandemic of 2020 where it was all put on pause. This year will be the first Pride Parade we’ve had in two years, and while we are still concerned over Covid, there’s now also the worry over violence, like recently in Idaho where a van full of Fascist militia were ready to harm people celebrating Pride.

Drag Queens vs Fascists

6/20/2022
Like St. Patrick’s Day or Mardi Gras, Pride month used to mean drunk, rowdy folks celebrating out in the streets, and now, for some, it means dragging your screaming kids to the local library to see drag queens struggling to read a children's book. Fascists are now more critical of drag queens than Aubrey O’Day reading Alyssa Edwards for her perfume ad in Season 5 of Drag Race (look it up). But is all this commotion just a distraction from the January 6 hearings on the Republicans’ sloppy...

Hattie RetroAge Uses Orgasms to Bring World Peace

6/18/2022
We live in very challenging times- increasing gun violence, inequality and a pandemic which makes it hard to connect with others. But one light in the darkness is Hattie RetroAge, the sex positve grandma who made a splash several years ago as a model for Dolce & Gabbana and for being a mature woman who loves to date younger men. You’ve probably heard the idea that orgasms can bring about world peace, but isn’t that a bit wishful thinking? Or is there more to this idea that your sexual...

Burlesque for Bodybuilders - Chaka Corn
