By Chris Azzopardi | Q Syndicate

Before we forever move on from the rankling crap-stain known as 2017, let’s revisit some memorable words of encouragement said to me this past year, from a heap of A-listers who used their platforms for the greater good as they discussed important LGBTQ issues, their own sexuality, and more.

Deep Inside Hollywood: The best of 2017

Posted: January 5th, 2018 | Featured, Q Syndicate | No Comments

By Romeo San Vicente | Q Syndicate

The past 12 months have seen us finding refuge in our own queer selves. The sheer volume of LGBT-themed cultural content allowed a lot of us to see taking the occasional break from the harsh political and social climate of this year as a form of self-care, even if it was just to swoon to the “TRL”-endorsed, girl-loves-girl pop of upstart singer Hayley Kiyoko. Her summer single “Feelings” was the bounce we needed and we want 2018 to make her a household name.

(Bad) Moms know best

“Are there gays in Michigan? They made it all the way there?” deadpanned Mila Kunis to native Michigander Kristen Bell, as if to jokingly say all the world’s queers migrated from her hometown of West Hollywood.

Bell, 37, seated next to Kunis, 34, at a hotel conference room in The Peninsula Chicago, replied plainly. “Well, yes.”

In bed with Alan Cumming

By Chris Azzopardi

Alan Cumming is chill as can be in a hotel bed in Los Angeles, where he’s tugging on his crotch, illustrating to me the surprisingly flirty exchange he just had with tennis great and LGBT pioneer Billie Jean King.

“She just made a joke about my dick in the corridor,” Cumming said, amused. “I’m like, ‘Billie Jean!’”

A Freedom through femininity

Tyson Ritter strips down to nothing for the All-American Rejects’ new queer project.

Fuzzy leopard-print top, blonde wig, fake eyelashes, low-cut skirt, stilettos — the frontman de-drags as he transforms from a prostitute, Betsy, to a seemingly married, suited-up man and life of the party, Robert.

Dishing on the new albums of Kesha and Lana Del Rey

Posted: September 1st, 2017 | Arts & Entertainment, Q Syndicate, Top Story | No Comments

By Chris Azzopardi | Q Syndicate

Don’t be surprised if Kesha needed “Rainbow,” her first album since 2012’s “Warrior,” as much as the queer kids questioning their place in this mad, queer-resistant world do. Her comeback album’s soaring first single, “Praying,” finds light at the end of the long, turbulent tunnel the resilient pop star occupied for too long before reaching a point — beyond her much-publicized legal battles with producer Dr. Luke, beyond her booze-heavy factory pop — where she could finally say, “The best is yet to come.”

Sugar, spice and everything nice

By Chris Azzopardi | Q Syndicate Patti LaBelle dishes on ‘still standing’ thanks to the LGBT community, lip-syncing ‘divettes’ and Trump Is there a singer more real than Patti LaBelle? The 73-year-old legend of song (and shade) is a firehose of strong-minded opinions, and in an age that has some tight-lipped “divettes,” as LaBelle calls them, refraining from saying too much, the ever-honest LaBelle is, refreshingly, that rare freewheeler who revels in being blunt AF.

How Todrick Hall found his yellow brick road

By Chris Azzopardi

Todrick Hall grew up in Plainview, Texas, with a dream to be “one of these black women who could sing all these crazy notes.” It is, after all, in his blood —his cousin is none other than “Dreamgirls” song slayer Jennifer Holliday.

But first, as a child, the aspiring soul singer found life in “The Little Mermaid,” replicating Ariel’s crimson hair with a red towel on his head and gadgets and gizmos a-plenty. Clasping a fork, he created a makeshift fishtail by binding his feet together with a water hose. Meanwhile, to channel another hero of his, Catwoman, he got his hands on some blue tape, nails and a jump rope, which doubled as his whip and tail.

Our ally Sam

English actor talks of intolerance, waiting for the right queer role and gay ‘Hunger Games’ fan fiction By Chris Azzopardi | Q Syndicate After a breakout part in “The Hunger Games” saga as dreamy tribute Finnick Odair and now a starring role opposite Rachel Weisz, the odds certainly have been in Sam Claflin’s favor. Considering his winning streak, we’re holding out hope that a “Fifty Shades of Grey” style rendezvous between him and the Hemsworth […]
