Drag Queen Hands Bigots Their Asses at Gay Pride Parade

Rich Juzwiak · 07/02/14 11:17AM

Well, this is cathartic. During the annual Gay Pride parade in Seattle, a drag queen who goes by the name of Mama Tits confronted a pack of garden-variety Bible thumpers telling the gays to repent. Ms. Tits called them on their shit while conducting herself in a manner far more "Christian" than they were.

Gay Men Make Excellent Pageant Judges, But Drag Queens Are Even Better

Rich Juzwiak · 08/23/12 11:30AM

Gay men are the people you want judging your child beauty pageant. There's a dramatically lessened chance they'll be there for pedo reasons, they are more likely to simultaneously care about and find the humor in the charade of pageantry and since child-having is at least more complicated for them, if it's an option at all, they're often less precious about kids and happy to talk shit about them. That was my experience, at least, and last night's episode of Toddlers & Tiaras brought everything I'm talking about way over the top. A panel of celebrity-impersonating drag queens judged the little girls who are drag queens in their own right. As the pageant director explained, "These judges work in the entertainment industry, and know change and glitz better than any other competitor." Haaay.

We've Already Found the Worst New Show of the Fall Season

Brian Moylan · 08/09/11 05:07PM

The worst show of the new season is on ABC and is called Work It. It is unbelievably horrible. Even the 90-second trailer is too long to tolerate. This thing puts Cop Rock, Viva Laughlin!, and even That Show With Heather Graham that Got Canceled After One Episode to shame. Behold!

This Is the Scariest Lip-Sync Video You Will Ever See

Matt Cherette · 08/14/10 09:20PM

People exaggerate on the Internet. Please know that I'm not exaggerating now when I say that this video—of a drag queen lip-syncing Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"—is one of the scariest things I've ever witnessed.

RuPaul's Drag Race: Always Judge a Book By Its Cover

Richard Lawson · 03/23/10 12:07PM

On last night's episode of America's favorite gay infomercial, Ru and the gang were talkin' about books. Raggedy paper things that contain words that aren't "ooh girl" or "mama, yes." Unless they're written by a drag queen!
