There’s no denying that RuPaul is a powerful force in modern popular culture. It’s thanks to the likes of her hit TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race that drag queens have faced a resurgence in popularity, above the niche in gay culture they reside in and permeating the music, acting and fashion industries.

The story of an older man falling for a promiscuous younger man, fighting hard against adversity and rallying for love. At least I think that’s what they are aiming for. Edu (César Augusto), who is...

January 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Kelly Mantle has had a brilliantly successful career so far.

Equally important, however, is...
