    Ahead of next week's premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 7, the franchise's very first all-winners season, the competing queens of the cast have kicked off a whirlwind promo tour. Their first stop? Ringing the opening bell at NASDAQ—a tried and true queer pastime. Finally, someone has found an avenue where drag and exorbitantly ugly monetary wealth can intersect. Raven, we have not been looking for that! After a quick stop in Times Square to do day drag under the unforgiving light of the morning, it was off to Hudson Yards, specifically The Vessel, New York City’s preeminent monstrosity of a tourist trap that’s now facing permanent closure after multiple suicides onsite. There’s something particularly horrific about seeing the word “SLAY” on a giant jumbotron in front of The Vessel while the Drag Race queens flash the ultra-white veneers that the original flood of prize money from the show afforded them. But it's useless to blame the artists just doing their contractually-obligated promotion when we could instead be looking at RuPaul and Paramount Global, the media conglomerate that...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The joy of dance coupled with the harvest celebration that signals the beginning of Kwanzaa will be celebrated Saturday during a special performance in Queens. The percussive drumbeat stirs the soul and the joy of dance at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center is equally exhilarating, CBS2’s Andrea Grymes reported.

But this dance performance, returning after last year’s pandemic hiatus, is about more than just seasonal festivities. “We bring a lot of healing work to the audience, into the community through our dancing. So to be able to go back to having a live studio audience is something that we’ve all been looking for,” said Kevin McEwen, founder & artistic director of Kwanzaa Celebration. “Kwanzaa, the word is a Swahili word that means harvest,” McEwen explained. “But we’re also talking about the harvest of our human essences, and what is that,...
    More On: catholic church ‘Disrespected and discarded’: Catholic school teacher fired for being gay, suit claims Pope Francis reverses Benedict, reimposes restrictions on Latin Mass Pope Francis seen leaving hospital 10 days after surgery Trump’s Big Tech lawsuit has legs and other commentary A woman yanked down two religious statues outside a Queens church and destroyed them by chucking them into the street in a “heartbreaking” act of vandalism, the church’s pastor said. The early Saturday morning wrecking spree was caught on video outside Our Lady of Mercy in Forest Hills, where the hammer-wielding suspect hopped a short barrier and began shaking the decades-old statues until they became loose. The video shows the woman then throwing the figures — one of the Blessed Mother and another of St. Therese the Little Flower — onto the sidewalk and then onto Kessel Street. The enraged vandal is also seen whacking the statues with her hammer, stomping on them and spitting at the monuments. She fled the scene after the 3 a.m. incident. The suspect approaches the statues at Our Lady...

A local Florida gay club is experiencing threats after Republican politician Angela Stanton-King expressed her outrage online in April over a drag queen’s interaction with two young girls. Angela Stanton-King, candidate for Georgias 5th district speaks to supporters of the Republican incumbent candidate Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) while they attend an Election Day event hosted by the Georgia Republican Party on November 3, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia. Perdue is in a tight race against Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, who narrowly lost a 2017 Georgia congressional race in a district Democrats flipped the following year. Georgia’s other Senate seat is also up for grabs, pitting the Rev. Raphael Warnock and incumbent Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed by Georgia’s governor at the end of 2019 to fill the seat formerly held by Johnny Isakson, who stepped down for health reason. (Photo by Megan Varner/Getty Images) Stanton-King uploaded a video of herself on April 14 at The Palace Bar and Restaurant on Instagram with the caption, “WTF @palacdesobe.” “Now I’m sitting here trying to figure out why in the...
    A Brooklyn federal jury convicted a Queens man Wednesday of calling for the assassination of Democratic lawmakers in a video clip — and now he could end up in prison for up to 10 years. After a one-week trial, Brendan Hunt, 37, was found guilty of threatening to assault and murder a US official — the sole count against him for posting an 88-second video in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot titled “Kill your senators. Slaughter them all.” The panel, however, did not find him guilty of all the alleged threats that formed the basis of the charge — including a Dec. 6 Facebook rant in which he called for the public execution of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Charles Schumer. “We have to show up with our guns, and we need to slaughter these motherf–kers,” he rallied in the video uploaded Jan. 8 to Bitchute. “Get your guns, show up to DC, and literally just spray these motherf–kers. That’s the only option.” The former court employee took the stand in his own...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Three recent shootings in Queens outside of a New York City Housing Authority complex have community leaders and victims’ families calling for a ceasefire and also justice. On Wednesday night, a 32-year-old man sitting outside of the Woodside Houses told police a man came over to him, demanded money, and then shot him in the back. On Tuesday, a 29-year-old was shot dead outside of the NYCHA complex. And two weeks ago, at Broadway and 48th, innocent bystander Gudelia Vallinas, who was out running an errand, was struck and killed by a bullet fired during a dispute that began at Woodside Houses. “She was at the wrong place at the wrong time,” godson Felix Vergara told CBS2’s Alice Gainer on Thursday.

    New York : The district attorney from Queens, Melinda Katz, did this Tuesday a formal and historical request To the Acting Justice of the Supreme Court of this county Toko Serita: “Dismiss and seal over 670 cases and arrest warrants for charges related to Section 240.37 of the Criminal Law Code is repealed ”, which criminally punished the action of ‘loitering for prostitution ‘in New York. This step comes after a month of the approval of legislation 1351, by the State Assembly, which crossed out the prohibition from state regulations ‘Walking While Trans’ (‘Walking While Trans’) that affected, based on the records, mainly the groups Hispanic transgender and Afro-descendants, particularly in Queens. “Our commitment requires, as a next step, liberate members of our community affected by the collateral consequences of this type of arrests ”, explained Katz in a virtual conference. Many of the cases to be judicially dismissed involve individuals whose records were ‘tainted’ by prostitution arrests and open court orders, even for decades. “Rather than prosecute these defendants, we must help them by connecting them to meaningful...
    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City Non-essential businesses and schools will be ordered closed this week in nine Brooklyn and Queens ZIP codes where COVID-19 cases have surged over the past week, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Sunday. The plan still requires state approval, and de Blasio said the city is working actively with the Cuomo administration to move it forward. The city wants to enact the plan this Wednesday, Oct. 7, and it would reinstate for these areas many of the “PAUSE” initiatives enacted in March as the pandemic took hold of New York. The nine ZIP codes have seen daily COVID-19 positivity rates above 3% for at least seven consecutive days — a threshold that, de Blasio said Sunday, requires the city to act boldly to prevent the clusters from growing into another widespread outbreak. “It will be very difficult for those who live in these ZIP codes in all these communities,” the mayor acknowledged. “But it is necessary to stop the spread of the...
    (CNN)As her silver crown shimmered in the sunlight, Shaandiin Parrish loaded car after car in the Navajo Nation's Huerfano chapter area with food and toilet paper. When the coronavirus pandemic halted the nursing home visits and speeches that kept her Miss Navajo Nation predecessors busy, Parrish knew she couldn't hang up her crown and sash."She becomes everybody's mother, everybody's sister, everybody's aunt," the 26-year-old said about holding her title. The Navajo Nation, spanning more than 27,000 square miles across parts of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, had at one point some of the highest Covid-19 infection rates per capita in the United States. Regular weekend lockdowns and nightly curfews have since helped flattened its curve, but authorities are not easing restrictions yet.The incidence of Covid-19 cases among American Indians and Alaska Natives has been 3.5 times higher than among White people, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Read MoreThe pandemic has led Indigenous pageant queens or tribal ambassadors like Parrish to redefine their duties. While the majority have been unable to travel, these young women have sewn...
    (CNN)A popular San Francisco cabaret and nightclub is making the best of the pandemic shutdown with a meal delivery service that offers a lot more than just food and drinks. D'Arcy Drollinger, who owns Oasis, started a new initiative coined Meals on Heels that delivers homemade, restaurant-quality food along with cocktails and a socially distant drag performance. "The show must go on!" Drollinger told CNN. "It's like doing a drag show. If your zipper breaks or the DJ loses your song, you've got to figure out what to do. Put some duct tape on it and keep going."The 51-year-old San Francisco native had just recently bought out his business partners to become the full owner of Oasis, before the coronavirus pandemic shut them down. After the club's PPP money ran out, Drollinger didn't want to have to lay off all of his staff and still have to pay rent. When it was announced that bars could deliver alcohol if they also delivered food, he partnered with Martha Avenue, a local catering business. Read MoreDrollinger thought they could have a drag...
    By HAVEN DALEY | The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO  — These divas deliver. Drag queens don their colorful wigs, elaborate makeup and knee-high stiletto boots, but instead of stepping on a stage, they’re putting on a face covering, grabbing a takeout bag and bringing their musical numbers to fans’ doorsteps in San Francisco. The Oasis nightclub is turning the boring dinner blues into “Meals on Heels,” dispatching drag queens like Amoura Teese and Kochina Rude to bring food, cocktails and socially distant lip-synching performances to people during the coronavirus pandemic. On a recent evening, Rude delivered dinner to Kelsie Costa and her family in the city’s Marina District and then lip-synched the drag show classic “Finally” by CeCe Peniston. “There’s not a lot to do these days with shelter in place and COVID and all that,” Costa said. “So gotta spice it up somehow. It’s really fun.” Oasis owner D’Arcy Drollinger said it’s a way to reconnect with their fans and bring a little joy to those who haven’t had much to smile about recently. Related Articles 3...
