The headline play of this summer’s Queer Season at Islington’s King’s Head Theatre, Southern Belles brings together two one-act plays by Tennessee Williams, directed by Six co-director Jamie Armitage. Southern Belles revives two seldom-performed plays by Tennessee Williams – Something Unspoken before the interval, followed by And Tell Sad Stories of the Deaths of Queens. While each show may portray a very different same-sex relationship, similar themes such as power and manipulation are explored in both – as such, they...

Leaving an audience standing for 90 minutes is a tough ask, but when the material is an emotive, thrilling and frankly darn-right funky as this, time means nothing. Kaelo’s (Alfred Enoch) journey follows him from his home in London to South Africa following the death of his mother. When staying with his grandmother – who is unaware of her daughter’s death – the history and difficulties of life in South Africa are presented to Kaelo and a journey to understand...

Very often these days we can read bad and discriminatory stories hiding behind the ‘Christian’ badge. As much as some of them come from ‘false’ prophets one might wonder what happened to the “thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” which has been less and less practiced these days as we can all see. Today we follow the story of two mothers whose baby was denied from a daycare because they are lesbians. Brittney and Stacey Ready were very much...

It’s easy to see why this show was such a success across the pond – Gloria Estefan is a huge star there, and the music will play well to their market, where her story is also much better known. In the UK the concept of this musical seems a bit more niche, but the narrative – a classic rags to riches tale, which touches on topical themes including immigration – will resonate more universally. In a nutshell, On Your Feet!...

“And I’m kind of blown away by it,” he says of the Jonathan O’Boyle-directed production currently playing at the Soho Theatre. “I think it is equal to the New York production or even better.” The LA-born/NYC-based Vernon first put on the show – inspired by the 1973 arson attack on New Orleans gay bar The UpStairs Lounge in which 32 people died – as a 2013 concert. Four years later, it was fully-staged Off-Broadway and has been performed at numerous...

FX’s hit horror anthology series will be returning for a highly-anticipated ninth season later this year called 1984, and while – as usual – we don’t know what to expect plot-wise, we’re slowly but surely being drip-fed information to keep us satiated. One thing we do know for sure is that the new season will be premiering on FX in the US on 18 September. As for UK audiences, there’s no official premiere date yet, but last year’s season Apocalypse began...

The comedy-drama, which followed the title character and her friends as they attend middle school, has received acclaim from fans and critics for its LGBTQ storylines – specifically for its handling of Cyrus Goodman’s coming out journey. Cyrus’ sexuality was first addressed in the show’s second season when Andi discovered they both have a crush on the same boy. Later, Cyrus came out to his friend Buffy, telling her he feels “weird” and “different”. Her response was perfect. “Cyrus, you’ve always...

“When I stopped ready-to-wear in 2015 and dedicated myself only to haute couture, I thought that I could finally go back to my other love, and that was how Fashion Freak Show came into life. I wanted it to have a story, and which story do I know best? The story of my life.” With an explosion of glamour, drama and camp, Jean Paul Gaultier: Fashion Freak Show is set to give us the greatest insight into the life and...

Tennessee state Rep. Bill Sanderson — a “family values” Republican — abruptly resigned on Tuesday night after a state political blog accused him of “openly soliciting sex” and sending “sexually explicit messages and pictures to men almost 40 years his junior.” “The Dog and Pony Show,” a local political site by Cari Wade Gervin, claimed to have caught anti-LGBTQ lawmaker on the gay dating and hookup app Grindr. According to Gervin’s newsletter: Since he took office in 2011, Tennessee state Rep....

The brand new trailer for American Horror Story’s ninth season sees the debut of a Jason Vorhees-esque masked villain. Titled 1984, this season of the acclaimed horror anthology series will travel back to the 80s (duh) and will be set at a summer camp called Camp Redwood, and will take inspiration from iconic slashers such as Friday the 13th and Sleepaway Camp. Gus Kenworthy is set to make his acting debut, and will be joined by previous AHS stars such as...

The daughter of a since-deceased employee who worked at a now-long-gone photo shop in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania recently discovered some photos from a 1957 gay marriage hidden in her mom’s attic. And now Our One Story — a documentary series uncovering the stories behind artifacts from the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives in Los Angeles, California — is trying to figure out who the men in the photos are. Here’s the story: When a man dropped off the gay wedding photos...

Prior to the horrific events at Pulse nightclub in Orlando in 2016, America’s deadliest attack on an LGBTQ+ space occurred at the UpStairs Lounge in New Orleans. One night in the summer of 1973, 32 people died as the result of an arson attack on the bar. The View UpStairs gives an account of the events of that evening, viewed through a contemporary lens, with original music, lyrics and book by Max Vernon. The show’s concept demands a significant amount...
