First up, we welcome entertainer Nick Cearley to talk about the wonderful world of cabaret, the musical stylings of Sophie B. Hawkins, the creative influence of Menopause the Musical, his star turn as the Wicked Witch of the West AND how he’s able to strip down on stage: musically and fabric-ally.
We’re in a New York state of mind this week as we’re joined by Nathan Schaefer, executive director of Empire State Pride Agenda. This wide-ranging chat covers everything from the complex landscape of NY to how youth can get involved to how you can challenge complacency. SUCH great talk here!

First up, the fierce and fabulous BeBe Zahara Benet, the original superstar of RuPaul’s Drag Race, glides in to teach a master-class in beauty, attitude, positive energy and how even a gay Jew from New Jersey (that’d be Ken!) can give OH-so-good face!
What do you get when you combine razor sharp humor, a sprinkle of farce, a dash of spoof, a ton of eye-candy and the Nanny from Nanny and the Professor? Well, the only possible product is Here TV’s outrageous, new sitcom From Here on OUT!
Our good and absurdly talented buddy Kristen Ellis-Henderson, founding member of Antigone Rising, returns to the show to dish about the music industry, to reveal that Ken is the band’s muse(!) and to come dangerously close to announcing a solo career.
A second chance to hear Ken go all fangirl as he is joined by A Great Big World, a band that you absolutely need to know. They’re. So. Good! All this AND our regular relationship/dating advice segment with Dr. Frankie. What if your pets are clashing? When do you know if she’s the “one”?
