Meanwhile, In Westeros … The Gang’s All Here on Game of Thrones’ Final Season Premiere [RECAP]

Finally! After more than a year and half since the season seven finale, Game of Thrones is back for its final batch of explosive episodes. With queer characters like Renly Baratheon, Ser Loras and Oberyn Martell (and even icons like Lady Olenna and Margaery Tyrell) long gone, the show’s queer relevance has disappointingly dipped just as its cultural relevance is hitting a fever pitch. A case can definitely be made that rebelling against societal expectations, defying gender norms and navigating relationships with family (by birth, adoption or choice) could be...

Hay, Gurl, Hay! RuPaul’s Drag Race Buys the Farm [RECAP and RANKINGS]

There’s this concept in comedy called “punching down,” and it typically applies to making a joke at the expense of someone who is less successful/privileged/etc. than the performer. It’s not quite what Ra’Jah is doing up top on this week’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, but it feels every bit as gross to see. Technically, I guess it would be considered punching up, since Ra’Jah has been struggling for most of this competition. She opens the episode saltier than a biggie order of fries, resisting reading Scarlet’s fairly innocuous mirror message. Then...

Queens of the Night Take the Runway on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ [RECAP and RANKINGS]

Oh, hell yes. My feelings about the early big, group lip sync challenges have been well documented. However, I am a sucker for a ball. I particularly love a ball challenge when we have this many competitors. Thirty-three individual runways is a THRILL, and I think it’s a chance for these gals to show off who they are with far more flexibility than the sort of pre-written, pre-costumed schtick we suffered through last week. Before we get to the supersized runway, the ladies returned to the work room, and the...

Trump Ruins Everything, Even ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ [RECAP and RANKINGS]

Yikes. After last week’s lip sync bloodbath, the pressure was high to deliver this week on RuPaul’s Drag Race. The gals tried their best to step it up, but some truly lackluster creative left us with one of the limpest episodes in the series’ 11-season stretch. With a field of competitors that still feels bloated three eliminations later, it’s more important than ever to shine under the spotlights. Unfortunately, with challenges like these, it’s even tougher to put on a good showing. Take last night’s mini challenge. The queens had...
