For shining the sun right on queer masculinities:
mega drag family thanks to king Mike Oxready, producer and host of Bois of Summer.
All the applause and so many tip$ go to Papi Rompe-Corazones, Noah Dictive, Mike Oxready, and Beaux Peepers for sharing your words on our mic. You’re all fabulous and we wish we could have included everything you all said.
