Sometimes, you need to take a few minutes to forget the cares of the world and dive into pop culture escapism. And that’s what we do…for half of this week’s episode!
Singer/songwriter/troublemaker Daniel Gray returns to dish on all the latest drama out there in pop culture land including creative casting ideas for The Wiz, an ode to Britney, a salute to Empire and the shocking revelation that Ken has never seen Glitter.
And what better way to celebrate this huge milestone than with Ken’s first ever tv crush: Jim J. Bullock!! We have just the most incredible chat with Jim J. covering everything from Too Close For Comfort to Hollywood Squares to ALF to how Jim J is technically the leader of all of us gays because he came out of the closet on The Joan Rivers Show Who else can say that?!?
We’re giving you movie, horror, drama realness this week!
Award-winning screenwriter/director/producer Mark Bessenger joins us after a 4 year absence to talk about his latest film The Last Straight Man, embracing his penchant for horror and his quest to create LGBT content for all of us to consume. And his song selection for the week is one for the ages.
Light a candle, get into downward dog and go all zen as we bring to you yet another amazingly talented musician on this week’s episode.
We’ve been so honored to host so many incredible singer/songwriters over the years and this week is no exception as we welcome Chris Riffle to talk about everything from his creative process to singing at his own wedding to how we can get Yankee Candle to start sponsoring his career.
Here we are in Ohio, a locale where, on the one hand, we are in the minority of states without marriage equality but, on the other side of the rainbow spectrum, we just hosted the Gay Games and now sport the queerest city in the United States (Dayton?!?). How do we navigate towards equality while still retaining a sense of who we are as a community?
Well, if it is the holiday season, that can only mean one thing on This Show is So Gay! That’s right: Neda Ulaby! You can shove your mistletoe, eggnog and fruitcakes; we’ll take our favoritest NPR arts and culture reporter any Christmas you throw at us. In this, our annual yuletide chat, we cover everything from sapiosexuals to schneckosexuals to Supernatural to why you should always ALWAYS avoid the comments section.
