From hoo-ha to dingaling, there’s no shortage of words parents use to describe private parts to their kids. For writer director Robert O’Hara, it was “Bootycandy,” and that’s what he titled his play about a young boy who has to learn what it means to grow up gay and black.

Today, Robert O’Hara joins us top chat about his play, “Bootycandy,” the impact of Obama’s presidency, and how it’s Tyler Perry’s world and we are just living in it.

FOF #2442 – Go Honey West

The film, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, ignited a modern style of drag filled with campy, self-deprecating fun and trans inclusivity. It was later turned into a musical which our local Pride Films and Plays is putting it on featuring Honey West, who, as far as we know, is the first trans actor to play the role of Bernadette.

Joining us today is the lovely Honey West, who has been a hit on the cabaret circuit since her debut in her 1990 one-woman show, A Taste of Honey.

The Oscars nominations are in and while they aren’t as white as last year, they are still pretty white overall, but at least one gay themed movie made it into the best picture category.
