Dicey and Paprika Return to Club Cafe: Exclusive Interview

Ledcat Paprika

I’ve interviewed some pretty amazing performers over the years – Jill Sobule, Mary Gauthier,  …I’m even in the midst of an interview with Rick Springfield. But when the chance came for me to nab an exclusive with Dicey Stewart and Paprika LaRue, I dropped everything, let out a primal scream and immediately broke out some […]

General Hospital Explores How Someone Learns Homophobia

I think my dream job would be to write about the soaps. I’d have to get cable. I might also like to write for the soaps. Last week on GH, Lucas Jones revealed that he’s gay to long-presumed-dead bio father and mobster, Julian Jerome. It was a pretty intense series of scenes – Julian reeled […]

Pittsburgh Based “This Week In Gender” Debuts on YouTube

A new YouTube show debuted this week produced by the Gender Dances Project, based right here in Pittsburgh.

Mr. Rogers Was My Hero

When you were five years old, who was your hero? What do you think of that person today? My hero at the tender age of five was Mr. Fred Rogers. I started kindergarten at 4, turning 5 in late October. According to my mother, I would rush home from my half-day of education to flop […]

Saturday Memory: Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas

Emmet Otter

Who is with me on this one? Jim Henson created this from a children’s book. It aired on HBO in 1978 and then on ABC in 1980. I was 8 and we might have had HBO in 1978, but it is more likely that I saw it on ABC in 1980. I have no idea […]
