Features Q&A: Tori Amos on Gay Mentors, Living the Persephone Myth & How to Respond to Trump As a 'Non-Reactive, Postmenopausal' Woman

Tori Amos' mind is one of the greatest wonders of the music world. For over three decades, via an oeuvre as unpredictable as the muses that guide her, that very mind has been a trove of lyrical salvation and a divine melange of eccentricities, insight, imagination and, as I discovered during our illuminating exchange, even casual mentions of "Mean Girls."

Michigan 'Patti Cake$' Breakout Star Danielle Macdonald on the Film's Message to LGBTs, Her Gay Role Struggle & Her Drag Movie with Jennifer Aniston

Danielle Macdonald has something to slay. Of course, there's her coming-of-age film "Patti Cake$," which the 25-year-old Aussie actress crushes with credible virtuosity during her entire scenery-chewing run as an aspiring rapper, Killa P, working hard to beat the odds. The indie premiered to critical acclaim at Sundance and subsequently propelled the newcomer to Hollywood's ones-to-watch list. But Macdonald, who earned minor screen cred for starring in Ryan Murphy property, such as "Glee" and "American Horror Story," is busting out in a big, gay way. READ MORE.

Features Kesha's Open Letter to the LGBTQ Community: 'My Album 'Rainbow' Was Made For You'

My new album is called "Rainbow" and it's not a coincidence that rainbows are also a symbol of LGBTQ pride. Color for the past couple of years has been symbolic of hope for me. For me, rainbows are a sign of freedom to be yourself and celebrate who you are no matter what anyone else thinks. I have always felt like an outsider and have felt that I need to justify who I am and why I am how I am, and I feel like, unfortunately, that is a pretty common occurrence for people within the LGBTQ community as well. The LGBTQ community has always been an important part of my life and has always influenced my art, and I feel like it's as evident as ever on this album. READ MORE.

Q&A: Niecy Nash on Her Queer-Loved Roles, (Possibly) Going Lesbian on 'Claws' & How She Has 'Gay Friends Who Are One Bacardi Away From Being a Black Woman'

Niecy Nash doesn't think she knows any gay prostitutes, but they - and every other kind of gay - most certainly know her. From her rib-tickling portrayal of Deputy Raineesha Williams in "Reno 911!" to "Getting On" and the Ryan Murphy-created "Scream Queens," the Emmy-nominated actress' career is as fabulously queer as her latest show, "Claws." In the TNT sisterhood-centric drama, Nash's money-laundering badass of a character, Desna, is the powerful, leopard-print-wearing owner of a Florida nail salon that is a front for organized crime. And talk about powerful - we have Nash to thank for all the loud-and-proud clothing Desna dons like a boss. From her character's scorchin' drag-esque style to the possibility of her tough-as-nails character going lesbian in the second season - and the transformative power of Bacardi - Nash gave us queens plenty to scream about during our delicious new interview.
