At the age of 16, I had the opportunity to visit where I was born. It was also the moment that I experienced my first carnival in the Virgin Islands. St. Thomas’s carnival was wonderful. Seeing all these beautiful people, in all shapes and sizes, in gorgeous costumes without a care in the world was a powerful feeling. I’m still learning about my island heritage and what it all means. So it was a pleasure to learn about Becoming a Queen and the celebration and legacy of being
Many actors can find themselves becoming typecasted after succeeding in iconic roles. Deirdre Friel was determined this would not happen to her. Appearing in such shows as The Sopranos, New Amsterdam, and films like Second Act, Friel wanted her talent to be the focus and not the look. "A couple of years ago, I told my reps that I didn't want to play anything for plus-size women. I am not under any illusion of what I look like, but I have often found in the film and TV industr

I’m the middle child between two brothers, so playing sports and attending their games has always been a part of my identity.
When Director Fredgy Noël decided to make the next subject of her film about one of the most legendary houses in history, she knew the importance of that decision. The House of LaBeija, premiering at The Tribeca Film Festival, looks at the current members and leadership continuing their legacy as the first House of Ballroom.

There is always something comforting to me when I hear new music that reminds me of the days of punk/grunge bands of the 90s that would make guest appearances on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Go Axe Alice gives me that well-needed “what happened to music” vibe that is missing today. Their new album, Illuminate, is a dark, internal trip that speaks to me and many others.

doors. Go. In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape.
