OP: Coachella owner supports anti-gay, anti-trans organizations

By Alexa Stiles

In a crowd of aestheticized hippedom and flower-child attire, the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California embraces a free-spirited style as it promotes social liberty and its trademark “festival fashion”. The enormously profitable and ultra-popular spring music festival seems to be an open minded event, but it is run by a company and a man that is the complete opposite.

How Drag Has Changed the face of art, fashion, and beauty

By Sam Goodman


       We are in the midst of a revolution. A revolution of gender, of sexuality, of beauty. We are in the midst of a revolution. A revolution of fashion, of music, of art. We are in the midst of a revolution. A drag revolution.  Drag queens are artists, pioneers, and rebels in the world of gay culture. They are the definition of free expression which transcends sex, gender, economic background, and race. Drag is the radicalization of queer culture past, present, and future.
