In the 72 hours before we meet, Bobby was in LA, New York and also Phoenix. After leaving us – on a trip that included an appearance on national television and a date by Royal appointment, in the company of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – he’s casually off to Las Vegas. Confessing he’s feeling just a tad sleepy (and possibly hungover after partying with Killing Eve star Jodie Comer), Bobby is all ours as we meet to discuss...

Attention dear readers: read no further unless you don’t mind a plot-point reveal for the new season of Stranger Things. The popular Netflix nostalgia series sparked discussion after a scene showing the characters Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Will (Noah Schnapp) arguing about the dissolution of their core friend group when most of the boys, including Mike, find girlfriends.

Well, this is awkward. And possibly cryptic. But also maybe nothing. Who knows? But it’s certainly gotten our attention. Netflix has quietly and inexplicably removed 66 of 120 episodes of Chelsea Handler’s now-cancelled original series “Chelsea” from its platform. This might not seem like such a big deal except that it’s the only time the streaming giant has ever scrubbed content that it owned and created. And the fact that they’re not saying why they did it is also, well, kinda...

A new poll found that LGBTQ are actually pretty fine with just about anyone showing up at Pride, despite controversies around police officers, kinksters, families, and corporations. A poll of 801 LGBTQ people conducted by Whitman Insight Strategies and Buzzfeed News found that the community overwhelmingly supports just about everyone going to Pride. When asked about police officers marching in Pride parades, only 10% of people said “No.” 79% said “yes” and the rest didn’t give an answer. Corporations have also been...

Vox writes: In one particular scene, a boy named Kaworu declares his love for Shinji…. or at least he used...

Gadsby’s brilliantly written special provides completely unique social commentary on LGBTQ  and women’s issues as well as those of other marginalized people with soul-bearing honesty. Female standup comedians are tapping into subject matter...
