One of the supreme forces behind Los Angles burlesque, sideshow, and cosplay is Vita DeVoid who gives us a glimpse behind the grasepaint and feathers to discuss the origins and futures of such a denizen.  Escaping smalltown Florida, Vita would shock and amaze as a chameleon, insisting on being the deserved center of attention, garnering legendary monsterman Doug Jones’ attention, jamming nails into her face, paying homage to Lucille Ball, and getting retweets from the band Ghost.

Movies That Made WE (queer) vol. 2, part 25: Clue

Viktor Devonne asked some of his favorite nightlife personalities for some of their formative queer movies and they narrowed them to 3 each. Each segment features discussion on that film from the entertainer, in addition to further notes from those who were there at the time of the recording session. These are by no means meant to be a comprehensive expose on each film, but features notable memories, scenes, and analysis on them.

Part 25 (video version) features the third film selection from Olive Swisskey who chose Clue (1985) directed by John Landis and starring Michael McKean, Tim Curry, Lesley Ann Warren, Madeline Kahn, Eileen Brennan, Martin Mull, and Christopher Lloyd.

This video version segment is presented as a standalone piece, and may also be enjoyed in audio form as part of the overall “part 3” which contains the 1st film selection of all of the participants including Viktor Devonne, Mr. Valdez, Miss Violet DeVille, Lucky Charming, Mimi Hurricane, Lewd Alfred Douglas, Noctua, and Esmerelda May. For video ease, each film has been highlighted as a standalone video track, available freely to watchers.
