Metrosource wants to put you at the center of LGBTQ culture, with a wide array of features that cover topics that range from politics to entertainment, celebrity and personal stories.

Shequida, Don’t Drag Those Heels

Just try keeping up with drag star Shequida — we dare you. That queen seems to be everywhere at once. She’s the host of Queen of the Ride, she’s a regular at Hardware, and she has a host of her own projects that keep her busy. She’s also hella funny, as our exclusive video proves. She’s among the candidates vying for votes as our Legendary Queens Contest rolls on. Will she get your vote?

How Can You Not Love Samira Wiley?

From her breakout role on Orange Is the New Black to her Emmy-winning performance in The Handmaid’s Tale, Samira Wiley has created quite a stir in her still-young career. We caught up with her two weeks after she walked the red carpet on Emmys night, when she was part of an all-star cast (which included Randy Rainbow and Adam Rippon) reading of The Laramie Project. As heavily dramatic as her roles are, there’s one thing Samira doesn’t take too seriously — herself. That’s how she ended up on our 2018 list of People We Love.

And Her Beat Goes On

When the Big One drops and we’re all blown to smithereens, only Cher and Keith Richards will remain as the world’s most indestructible humans ever. Since her career is now in its sixth decade, it takes three singing actresses to being her biography to life in the new jukebox musical, The Cher Show. While the reviews have been mixed at best, we decided to have a look for ourselves. You’ll get all the hits (and then some) from “I Got You Babe” to the ’70s disco smash “Take Me Home” (the show’s curtain call) “Turn Back Time” and “Believe.” But how good is it? Read our review.
