Regina Richards And Red Hot (40th Anniversary Edition)

Ok, I’m totally going to date myself…which is unusual here, since that usually involves a package of Oreos, a Magic Mike movie marathon and a box of tissues. However, back in 1986 this was my jam: Ahhh…the 80’s when invading people’s privacy was sexy and so were sax solos! Regina’s Madonna-esque sound (and need for…

Crys Matthews’ Changemakers

When people think protest music, Bob Dylan or one of the Guthrie’s might come to mind. If you’re like me and prefer divas, Joni Mitchell or Joan Baez might be up your alley. Although to be honest, I don’t know any of their catalogs and couldn’t pick them out of a police line-up. Until recently,…

Alanis

What’s a gay to do when he finds himself in a drought? No, not the environmental or sexual kinds, much worse, diva withdrawal. It’s been almost two months since I’ve bought new music. Most of my divas have gone into a COVID hibernation, a few have released a single here and there, but that doesn’t…

My First Annual Divas Playlist

In my darkest days, music has always been the light at the end of the tunnel. My divas always know the right thing to sing and brightened my spirits in concert. This year a few of my old-school divas put out albums and I had time to discover some new-to-me divas. This year wasn’t the…

Taylor Swift’s Folklore

On Black Friday some people decide to become early holiday gift getters, others are bargain shoppers, and some become so overcome with the holiday spirit that they morph into mall tight-ends who will tackle a 90 year old grandmother to score the most desired toy of the holiday season for their even more obnoxious brats…

Kylie Minogue’s Disco

Gays come in different colors, shapes and sizes. However one common bond we Cher seems to be our love affair with divas. Every gay seems to have one (or in my case, an army) they will follow to the ends of the Earth. Kylie Minogue has reached gay icon status with rabid fans worshiping at…

Maria Mena’s They Never Leave Their Wives

I hope with an album title like They Never Leave Their Wives, you weren’t planning to listen while relaxing in the bath tub with candles lit and a glass of chardonnay, unless you were planing on throwing a toaster in with you. Staying on brand, Maria Mena’s new album is just as full of angst…

Patty Smyth’s It’s About Time

I, like any fan of 80’s music, know Patty Smyth as the voice behind the classic hit ‘Warrior” by Scandal. However, in my gay opinion, she solidified her spot in Divadom in 1992 when she released her single “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” with Don Henley. Her self-titled album became an instant favorite of mine…

Lindsay Ell

The thing I miss most during this whole Coronavirus thing is going to concerts and buying merch to get autographed afterward. The pandemic is allowing me time to find new divas though, last week I found Twinnie on Spotify. When I go to buy a new diva’s album (since streams don’t even earn them a…
