Oh, Canadian TV

If you heard a loud, piercing squeal sometimes yesterday afternoon it was just me. I was just reacting to news that Megan Follows was joining the cast of “Wynonna Earp” in a recurring role as Momma Earp. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL!This is Emily Andras making all of my wildest Canadian dreams come true. Show More Summary

Super Non-Conforming

So the Super Bowl was kinda interesting. The halftime show was kinda meh. And the ads were kinda blah. Sure, the Tide ad was maybe sorta kinda funny. But two ads did stand out. One was the Coke ad that made history for using the “them/they” pronoun. Show More Summary

My Weekend Crushing It

In my ongoing effort to bring good news to our garbage reality, please allow me to introduce you to 16-years-old Australian explorer Jade Hameister. She is the youngest person to ever complete the so-called “Polar Hat Trick.” This means,...Show More Summary

See Jane, Really See Jane

Hi Kittens. I just felt like dropping in a little reality check about this business we call show. I started this blog more than 10 years ago to chit-chat about the effervescent delights of pop culture through the lens of this rather opinionated gay gal. Show More Summary

Everything Old Is New Again, No Really

Well, it’s an exciting time if you’re a fan of 80s and 90s television. Why? Because it’s basically all coming back. “Will & Grace” is already back. “Heathers” is (dubiously) coming back. “Murphy Brown” is much less dubiously coming back (with Candice Bergen, huzzah). Show More Summary

Gotta Grammys

The Grammys are always a strange hodge-podge. You can usually count on a strange mix of performers, a strange mix of winners and at least one strange or not-so strange breakout moment. This year was no exception. It was too long. (And,...Show More Summary

Oscar Herstory

Welcome back to Good Gay News Monday (GGNM because I’ve never met an overly long acronym I didn’t love to bits). Last week, out cinematographer Rachel Morrison became the first women to be nominated for best cinematography by the Academy Awards. Show More Summary

My Weekend Crush

Well here’s a story that will make you feel patriotic and gay and patriotically gay. This month a 90-year-old Air Force veteran Helen Grace James finally got the honorable discharge she deserved. In 1955, while serving as an Airman Second Class, investigators hounded her to find out if she was gay – even following her into clubs. Show More Summary

The Baking Place

My favorite big, beautiful, utterly perfect cartoon giraffe will always be Jameela Jamil. She may be a “hot, rich fraud with legs for days,” but she’s our hot, rich fraud with legs for days. Side note, everyone should really be into Tahani. Show More Summary

Special Agent Lesbian Fantasy Fulfillment

I love it when Lesbian Fantasy Universes collide. So earlier this month Gillian Anderson was on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and they started talking about this new film she is doing with Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis. This is the first time Gillian and Kate have worked together. Show More Summary

What Is Your Damage, Heathers?

Look, I want to love the “Heathers” reboot. I really, really do. Because, of course, I loved the movie “Heathers.” Who doesn’t love when teen angst bullshit has a body count? But I’m struggling to embrace the “Heathers” television reboot. Show More Summary

This Even Matters

Kittens, we did it. We made it through one entire year of the Trump administration. Sure, we’re all exhausted and demoralized and enraged and frightened and have I mentioned exhausted already? But, yes, we made it through one single year. Show More Summary

My Weekend Crush

Last year was, unquestionably, bleak in ways large and small (and in the case of Trump’s hands, tiny). But in an effort to force 2018 to our will (and the will of the people who, by some 3 million votes – and one would suspect counting now – did not want this) here is a ray of joy. Show More Summary

It's Getting Cate In Here

Oh, hai. Did you need a pick-me-up on this January Thursday? Here you go. Hope that gets you through the remainder of the week. And possibly your life. You're welcome.

Out of the Woods

At long last, is it finally Woody Allen’s moment in The Reckoning? A tiny trickle has become a steady stream of actors who have worked with the filmmaker in the past and are now denouncing, and apologizing, for their involvement with him. Show More Summary

Goodnight, Sweet Dolores

Like many of you, the Cranberries were the soundtrack to a very specific time of my life. A time filled with intense change and emotion, love and heartbreak. You know, the usual. But through it all Dolores O’Riordan’s voice, this beautiful, powerful, haunting, unmistakable, unforgettable wail. Show More Summary

Flame On

Welcome to your Monday. May you all enter this week with the kind of ferocity as Sigourney Weaver test firing a flamethrower for the filming of “Alien.” p.s. Also, this means every time you see Ripley wielding a flamethrower in “Alien,” that fucker is the real fucking deal. Have a badass week, all.

My Weekend Oprah

Look, I don’t necessarily thing America should go elect another billionaire celebrity as its president anytime soon. One would hope the petulant orange C-Lister we have in there now would scare us away from ever again letting a famous...Show More Summary

Streep Throat

Look, it’s been an infinitesimally less terrific and no less economically advantageous time to be a straight white male recently. I know, cry them a river, they have to try to stop being such blatant garbage sex monsters. But in an effort...Show More Summary

Low Ryder

Because this is the Fuck the Patriarchy Golden Globes week here at Surrenders, I thought we’d discuss that insane L’Oreal commercial that aired during the ceremony. You know the one, where a dark-haired actress prepares nervously for her big moment in a dressing room while inspirational music swells. Show More Summary
