FOF #2452 – Hurts So Good – 02.16.17  

Cosmopolitan has their heart in the right place— for a major publication, they are pretty cheeky when it comes to giving their readers sexual advice, but for some insane reason, much of that advice will land you in the hospital. Today, the hilarious Cody Melcher, who knows a thing or two about dicks, joins us to take a look at the painful and hilarious consequences when bondage goes mainstream.

FOF #2451 – Vappy Halentine’s Gay – 02.14.17  

LGBT folks come in all shapes and colors, even shades of miserable, conservative beige. A gay journalist who says he used to be liberal is now saying he’s ready to come out as conservative, claiming he’s a victim of all the outrage over his article on a alt-right gay scammer whose attempt at pissing people off is putting money in his pocket. Today we’re taking a look at the few but miserable lgbt folks who for some reason, are hot for Trump, Bannon and Putin’s Nazi dong.

FOF #2448 – DRAGtastic Measures – 02.08.17

FOF #2446 – Gagabowl – 02.06.17  

Conservatives get nervous about art, because great art inspires people to see the world in new ways, and challenges the status quo. So it’s no wonder Trump supporters and the National Rifle Association were up in arms when they heard one of the most progressive pop stars ever, Lady Gaga, was going to perform during the the Super Bowl Halftime show. Today, we take a closer look at Lady Gaga’s spectacular Super Bowl Halftime show

FOF #2445 – The Biology of Homosexuality – 02.01.17  

You only have to look at ancient art and writings to know that among human beings, same-sex attraction has existed across time and cultures.

FOF #2443 – Rebels with a Cause – 01.30.17  

One of the great challenges we face in bringing about political change is figuring out out how not to get overwhelmed by all the negativity we see in the news and our social media. Today, comedian Meredith Kachel joins us to take a look at how to best handle the people in your life who are still Trump supporters even after all the demented policy and appointments he’s made in his first week in office.

FOF #2442 – Go Honey West – 01.27.17  

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.

What are they, why would you take them and how can they kill you?

FOF #2437 – Chugging Down the Fountain of Youth  – 01.20.17
