Everyone's favorite man is back in our lives! That's right, Burning Man kicks off this Sunday, and in honor of the occasion, Mike Ciriaco is gifting this week's Monday Mouth-Off as a Gay Guide to thriving at the Burn.
After reading this book, I discovered that Michelle is not only all of the things you would assume of her, but so much more. She is a fighter, and really an inspiration that keeps me dreaming big. This diva has so many exciting things going on in her life, I had to ask her, "15 Questions."
First, contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race, Season 7 dubbed spin-off Drag U a flop in song. Now, seemingly adding insult to injury for the LOGO show axed in 2013 after just 26 episodes, it turns out even series regular The Lady Bunny didn't tune in!
To quote perennial RuPaul's Drag Race favorite Latrice Royale, "Oh, the shade of it all!" From other Drag Race winners to comic peers, when it comes to Bianca Del Rio's razor-sharp tongue, nobody's safe. This past weekend, the drag superstar had some choice words for LGBT icon Kathy Griffin.

I spend time with several of YouTube's most beloved gay stars, including Davey Wavey, Randy Rainbow and Willam Belli. It seems as though whatever these three personalities post on YouTube turns to gold, with viewership numbers often reaching in the millions.
Willam Belli first made me aware of Chick-fil-A's hateful stance with his clever, viral video "Chow Down (at Chick-fil-A)," which parodies Wilson Phillips' smash "Hold On." He's never at a loss for words, so I was eager to hear the latest on the uproar that he definitely helped create.
I have a hard time understanding why the idea of estrogen use would be threatening to being a gay man, when in fact, personal identity is a delicate balance of choice, personal representation, and lived experiences.
I had scheduled an interview with Willam last week, before the bomb dropped, for a second installment of my HuffPost blog "Queer Celebrities Need Love, Too," but after watching the show I decided to throw out all those questions. Here is my chat with Willam from yesterday.
