I had the pleasure of interviewing Colton Haynes about his new memoir Miss Memory Lane. The full piece is at Pride.com and a link will appear below the excerpt.
I’ve watched Colton for a long time and always knew he had something deep and troubling inside of him. The book itself isn’t polished and it sort of defies genre, but it sticks with you and lingers in your mind. Colton has made himself vulnerable and open to critique, judgement and hopefully support.
The book is available now wherever books are sold, the audiobook is forthcoming. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
I’m all for a comforting and predictable film. With the stresses of the last couple of years, watching a Marvel film or a rom-com speaks to me. I told myself I wasn’t in the mood for something too original so I sat down to Everything Everywhere All at Once thinking it would be a fun Matrix knock-off where I could see Michelle Yeoh kick butt.
Movies like Disney’s Sneakerella allow me to rest in the idea that the kids really are alright. One one hand, fairytales are classic tales full of heroism, romance, action and usually a moral lesson at their heart. On the other hand, they are often heteronormative, misogynist, lack any diversity and some of the endings are more nightmarish than any fairytale should be. The effect of these films and stories can’t be denied. Millions of little girls want to be princesses and millions of little boys want to be valiant princes.
Hulu’s new original film Crush is a coming of age highschool rom-com with a queer twist. The film is directed by Sammi Cohen and was written by Kirsten King and Casey Rackham – all identify as queer women.
