Trolls Go After 'Drag Race UK' Contestant Sister Sister, Fellow Queens Call For An End To Abuse
I've become a huge fan of #RuPaulsDragRaceUK since I started watching Season 2 in January 2021. While I appreciate some queens' drag aesthetic more than others, I have definitely gained respect for what these UK queens have done through what has likely been one of the most difficult times of their lives - living with the COVID-19 pandemic. I am not a creative person in the way these queens are, and to see them just putting everything they can into every challenge and try to elevate what they're doing each week while still adhering to safety protocols and so forth has just continued to impress me.
'UK Hun?' A Campy, Fun 'Drag Race UK' Hit
If you haven't already, you really need to "clap for the bing bang bong." The most recent installment of #RuPaulsDragRaceUK saw the queens being told that they had to suspend filming immediately and go home due to the #COVID19 crisis. There was a seven-month hiatus where the queens had to determine other means of making money, if they didn't have a day job, before filming resumed in late 2020 with safety protocols in place. As they returned, they noticed they were one short - #VeronicaGreen, who had tested positive for #coronavirus - and had the opportunity to vote to bring one of the queens back, and #JoeBlack was the lucky winner and got to participate in the RuruVision contest. It was a parody of the Eurovision Song Contest, and the queens were split into two different groups - the United Kingdolls (#Tayce, #LawrenceChaney, #BiminiBonBoulash, and #Awhora) and Bananadrama (#TiaKofi, #JoeBlack, #EllieDiamond, and #SisterSister).
Pedro Pascal Voices Support, Love For Trans Sister Lux
The Mandalorian star #PedroPascal showed once again why everyone has such high regard for him. In a recent Instagram post, #TheMandalorian portrayer, 45, praised his sister #LuxPascal, 28, for her bravery in coming out as transgender via the Spanish language magazine Ya.
The Love Of Parents Continues To Shine For Dan Levy
I'm not quite sure whose star is becoming brighter lately - #DanLevy or that of his parents, Schitt's Creek co-creator #EugeneLevy and his wife #DeborahDivine. Don't get me wrong; it's clear that all the accolades that Dan Levy has received and continues to receive are very much deserved, and they don't give the coveted #SNL hosting spot to just anyone. However, his parents are gaining quite a bit of traction online thanks to their unabashed love of their son.
"Drag Race UK" Features Poignant Look At Gender Norms
Although I've watched all 12 complete seasons of #RuPaulsDragRace and am currently well into season 13, this is my first time watching #RuPaulsDragRaceUK. The most recent episode on January 28 on #Crave in Canada featured probably one of the most remarkable, poignant and heartwarming conversations about gender norms and life outside the gender binary between two of the queens - #GinnyLemon and #BiminiBonBoulash.
'Schitt's Creek' Co-Creator, Star Dan Levy Picks Up 'SNL' Hosting Gig
I vividly remember the goofy humor of SCTV growing up. It was my first exposure to #EugeneLevy, who would go on to become #DanLevy's dad. After a while, I sort of forgot about Eugene Levy until the American Pie movies came out, and it feels like I blinked and suddenly saw a young man who looked an awful lot like Eugene Levy hosting The Great Canadian Baking Show. Until that point, I really wasn't that familiar with the now-insanely popular Dan Levy, but that was largely because I didn't watch MTV Canada, where the younger Levy was a VJ.
'Girls Incarcerated' Shows Truth Of Many Imprisoned Girls' Lives
Kudos to #Netflix for coming out with a series that sheds light on the realities young inmates face. With Girls Incarcerated, viewers are taken inside a prison for young women, and while it's a no brainer to realize that these girls are not exactly living their best lives behind bars, the series gives its audience a distinct insight into the lives these girls were living prior to their arrival to the jail.
Dear Donald Trump: Don't Let The Door Hit You On The Way Out
Dear #DonaldTrump; To paraphrase Canadian musician #ColinJames, it's been four long years. There's been a lot I've had to explain about your tumultuous tenure to my girls, who are now almost-12 and 16 and were nearly-8 and 12 when you started your #WhiteHouse shenanigans. They've been allies of the #LGBTQ community for years, and when they learned that you were trying to pull protections for transgender youth and, in general, trying to make life more challenging for those who were transgender, they were dismayed and were full of questions about why you wouldn't want to keep these individuals safe. I didn't have a good answer.
