You Betta Werk! Last night was the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 Premiere Party in New York City Hosted by Michelle Visage at Stage 48 and my goodness it was like a glitter rainbow drag queen bomb went off! I’ve never seen so many queens assembled in one place in my entire life, it was like bearing witness to a unicorn being born. Magical. I attended the event with new gal pal Adam Barta who just dropped his new single with Margaret Cho, “See You Next Tuesday.” Adam quickly introduced me to his other date for the night, Angelina Pivarnick from Jersey Shore and we were off. The evening was quickly shaping up to be one to remember.

The event started off with a media frenzy as all the season 6 contestants took to the red carpet. Some notable fashion nods were April Carrion and Gia Gunn, those girls #werked the couture like it was still mercedes benz fashion week. Also BenDeLaCreme got the memo that we wear pink on Wednesdays, so I told her she could sit with me at lunch. Vivacious can come too since she also got the pink memo and looked fabulous. A big fashion statement was made by Magnolia Crawford who went with a traditional Muslim hijab for her red carpet look. I personally thought she looked stunning but I think it was lost on many people. Coming from Vancouver, Canada, where it’s very multicultural I love all things fashion from all walks of life but I noticed a few sideways glances for sure. The lighting was less than ideal but I still managed to snap quite a few good shots of most of the girls which you can catch on the Instagrams. The media was snapping up a storm and live tweeting like their lives depended on it. After the media free-for-all there was a meet and greet upstairs in the VIP area with all the ladies. Before I made it up stairs though BeBe Zahara, the original crowned Queen, snatch me up for a photo and I somehow lost my virginity in her weave. She said she’s having it FedEx’d over to me.

Intimate Interview With Bif Naked

I recently had the opportunity to interview international recording artist Bif Naked on my radio show Discovering Your Truth on YTP Radio which you can check out below. For an hour we spoke all about her continual journey with cancer, past albums, pivotal moments in her career, going on tours and also her new interest in dating!

It was such a pleasure to get to spend time with a person who was so influential to my life when I was growing up. My sister who is 10 years older than me was a massive fan of Bif Naked and thus I became a fan since I was always listening to what she was listening to. I still have my I Bificus album in storage back in Vancouver.

Right now Bif is working on releasing her recently finished Memoirs book which will hopefully be hitting the shelves very soon. She describes it as a collection of short stories about her life all wrapped up together. She’s definitely a woman who’s lived a colourful life so I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. During the interview we also touched on the subject of love, something Bif has kept out of her mind for quite some time. The shift came after she lost her beloved little Nicky (her dog) who was her whole world for so long. Now that Nicky had moved on Bif decided it was time to get back on the horse and try out dating again which is a very recent development. Throughout the interview you can hear both old and new songs from Bif and we kick things off with her song “The Only One,” which is my favourite off her new album Bif Naked Forever: Acoustic Hits & Other Delights which I highly recommend getting from iTunes. She does a great job remaking the old songs as well as a few new ones.

You may have never heard of Jordan Bach before but I will tell you now he’s a man you should pay attention to. Between his inspirational tweets, topless YouTube’s and adorable Instagrams with his niece a gay man might go into dreamboat overload following him. But Jordan isn’t just another pretty face, he’s a man on a mission.

Jordan Bach is a Life Coach based out of New York who is building a life from inspiring gay men to live authentic and genuine lives. Called ”one of the LGBT architects of the next decade” by The Advocate, he created TheBachBook.com as an online home for gay men who want to make the most of their lives.

Fresh off their MTV VMA win, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis paid Chelsea Handler a visit on her E! late night show. Handler didn’t waste anytime getting down to business. At the top of the interview, the hip-hop duo from Seattle addressed gay rumors. Both are sadly straight with Macklemore engaged. Also disappointing, for all you folks who thought he was a redhead, including myself, he’s actually strawberry blond. No ginger pride here ;) Here’s how the LGBT anthem “Same Love” came to be.

“It was an issue that I wanted to tackle but as a straight man, I’m like what is my vantage point on this issue? I tried to write it from the perspective of a gay, bullied kid. Brought it back to the studio, Ryan heard it and was like, ‘That’s not your story to tell. You have a story here, talk about your experience’ and I started there.” – Macklemore

Check out the brief six-minute chat below. It’s quite entertaining due to Macklemore and Handler’s spicy banter.

My Interview With Roxxxy Andrews

In: Interviews, Tommy D, Totally GAY!, TV Shows

Say what you will about this queen, she was fierce on Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I loved her from the second I saw her promo and I will love her until the end of time. Miss Roxxxy Andrews was recently in Vancouver for the hottest Thursday night in town LIBERACE and natually I got to chat with her before she went on stage.

What I will tell you about Roxxxy is that she is incredibly sweet. Sure we had some GREAT sass moments, but she really took the time to spend time with us here and get to know everyone. Hopefully people will let the reality TV drama disappear because Roxxxy is incredible. Check out the interview below!

The fabulous British singer/songwriter Jessie Ware released the US version of her stunning album Devotion last week and also played both weekends of the Coachella Music Festival.

Not only was I lucky enough to catch her very fun afternoon set in the Mojave tent where the singer donned an adorable blue and white striped skirt with a lace crop top jacket as she charmed the crowd, but I was also able to briefly speak to Jessie about her album, Coachella, and her gay following.

See what Jessie had to say below…

Oh Detox. One of my favorites in the world Detox. I have been a fan of hers since forever ago. I absolutely love her because shes original and creative, doesn’t give a crap and just stays true to herself.

We gabbed about the “bullying” nonsense from Monday’s RuPaul’s Drag Race episode, her hardest challenge and her team up with Willam and Vicky Vox. Detox is so ridiculously fierce but I personally don’t think she was represented well on the show. That’s my opinion and it’s the right one #sorryboutit!

Take a listen below, and we will be seeing more of Detox at the reunion!

I totally party fouled guys! I totally missed my Wednesday interview with Coco and had to do it yesterday which is why we are a day late. WHOOPS! At least we got something. The most polarizing cast member this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, I chatted with Coco about her mutual respect for Alyssa Edwards, what she though her hardest challenge was, her Vegas show and which queen she thought was her biggest competition.

Take a listen below and come back on Tuesday to see my thoughts on the newest episode!
