Fearless and Funny

Fearless and Funny

BY GARY M. KRAMER | Out gay comedian Eddie Sarfaty thinks everything is funny: family, relationships, politics, annoying people, really annoying people, pets, his own neuroses, other people’s neuroses, self-doubt. The list goes on and on. “If there is anything so horrible that you can’t make fun of it, I don’t ever want to know what […]

The Women He Loves

The Women He Loves

BY GARY M. KRAMER | Seth Sikes has a powerful, elegant voice, which he uses to sing standards made famous by Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, and Barbra Streisand, among a bevy of beloved divas. Sikes doesn’t try to perform like the divas who are his heroes; his show, instead, is his own personal tribute to them. […]

Sex and Death: Read All About It!

Sex and Death: Read All About It!

BY TRAV S.D. |For someone who can’t be pigeonholed — humorist? playwright? poet? clown? comedian? performance artist? horror writer? LGBTQ icon? — the phenomenon of nature known to the public as Dandy Darkly is totally distinctive. Living fully up to his pseudonym, Darkly is a Southern Gothic steampunk grotesque given to flamboyant recitations and flights […]

Spoofing “Hamilton,” Saluting Comden

Spoofing “Hamilton,” Saluting Comden

BY DAVID NOH | The multi-talented Christine Pedi is a genuine New York treasure, delighting us for years now with her hilarious impressions of all our favorite Broadway divas — boobalicious, crusty-voiced Bernadette, pear-toned if a tad wobbly Julie Andrews, a Sherman tank of a Stritch and, of course, an endlessly manic Liza. A new chapter […]

Church of the Safe to Say It

Church of the Safe to Say It

BY SCOTT STIFFLER | It wasn’t that kind of Inaugural Ball. Nobody looked past trans theater artist Maybe Burke’s talent; there was nary a word about who designed the clothes. Eyes didn’t dart when Natalie Douglas declared, “I’m a woman, so bleeding is political” before nailing a song about meeting Jesus in a Christopher Street […]

Things to Celebrate from 2016

Things to Celebrate from 2016

BY DAVID NOH | And so, 2016 ends with both a bang (of the most unsettling proportion with the incoming POTUS’ myriad threats) and a whimper (all of us, in reaction), yet the Agnes Moorehead Awards for the 10 Best Live Performances – the Aggies, if you will – still need to be bestowed upon the […]

The Mink Who Stole Christmas Back

The Mink Who Stole Christmas Back

BY SCOTT STIFFLER | When the world seems cold and cruel, devoid of the kind of seasonal spirit that motivates you to throw back the covers and forge ahead instead of curling up and calling in sick, there’s one surefire way to give gloom the heave-ho, ho, ho: Knock back a cocktail, wrap yourself in Mink, […]

Eclectic Piano Man, Ebullient Tony-Winner

Eclectic Piano Man, Ebullient Tony-Winner

BY DAVID NOH | Classical pianist Simon Ghraichy returns to Carnegie Hall on October 14 with a concert entitled “My Hispanic Heritage.” The gay, toweringly tall, lean, multi-ethnic musician with a tumbleweed of hair made quite a visual impression when I interviewed him, but it was nothing compared to the impact when he sat down at […]

Justin Sayre: A Thousand Judys & A Million Laughs

Justin Sayre: A Thousand Judys & A Million Laughs

BY DAVID NOH | With one of our community’s most beloved events, “Night of a Thousand Judys,” coming up on June 6 at Merkin Concert Hall, I snatched the chance to speak with its flamboyantly witty and fun impresario, Justin Sayre. Already a near New York legend for “The Meeting*,” his regular convening of all things […]

She Don’t Need To Show Off  

She Don’t Need To Show Off  

  BY MICHAEL SHIREY | “The winner of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ America’s next drag superstar is —” Wait a minute, I’ma get there. And don’t go acting like you don’t already know who won. I first saw Bob the Drag Queen (not to be mistaken with Bob the Builder) a few years ago, when a friend […]
