By the time I finish writing this, Galen Hooks, L.A. based choreographer, producer, dancer, advocate, and more (a lot more), will likely have flown 238,900 miles to the moon, performed a killer dance routine in a pair of jet black stilettos, and made it back to New York in time to teach an afternoon intensive class. But that’s to be expected from an extraordinary dancer. For Hooks, busy days (sans space travel) packed with dance classes, intensives, traveling around the world, and helping dancers reach their full...

Based in Chicago, visual artist Laura Berger’s work emotes a space of calmness, yet playful, through her execution of balance and symmetry. Either existing in solitude or intertwined into another, all tiny naked bodies existing to serve a bigger picture, further defining and exploring the human connection. With acrylic and gouache on wood panel, Berger’s pieces explore peace and solitude, while not straying from strength in an all-female space. Berger explains, "I'm interested in and inspired by rituals, symbols, nature, dreams, travel, our quest for self-development...

There’s no right way to portray Eating Disorders in film and television, but there are many wrong ways. Netflix’s new film To The Bone, while well intentioned, brings nothing of substance to the table. Which raises the question: How can a film written by a person in recovery (producer, director, and writer Marti Noxon), and portrayed by an actress in recovery (Lily Collins has been vocal about her food and body struggles in her new memoir Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me), manage to reinforce...

The future is female, fierce, and dropped some dope words of truth at the Chicago Pitchfork festival June 14. Who better to kick off the festival this past weekend than singer and writer Madame Gandhi? No stranger to the Pitchfork music festival, Kiran Gandhi, also known by the stage name Madame Gandhi, first came to Pitchfork in 2013 as the drummer for MIA. 2017 was an even more eventful year for Gandhi being that she was the opener, kicking off the festival with her vision of...

Peppermint, the recent runner-up of RuPaul’s Drag Race, said she's struck by the fact she doesn’t have any home movies. “I've had a lot of amazing experiences, and some of them I don’t even remember,” she said. “I thought, ‘What would happen if my Facebook disappeared?’” This is part of the reason she wanted to start documenting her life on film. “Project Peppermint,” a working title, is reaching the final days of crowdfunding and aims to shed light to Peppermint’s life as a drag queen and a...

Mindy Kaling is pregnant... we think. Still no official word, via Instagram, a la Beyonce style, from the The Mindy Project and A Wrinkle In Time star, but according to E!, multiple sources confirmed the 38-year-old comedian is expecting her first child. WE. ARE. SCREAMING! E! also reports from an insider that the news comes as an “unexpected surprise.” However, Kaling has always been candid about motherhood.

Our host at The Brattle Theatre in Cambridge introduced The Little Hours as a lot like Massachusetts: full of Catholics dropping f-bombs. The Little Hours certainly delivered with its anachronistic and irreverent comedy as a largely improvised retelling of Giovanni Boccaccio’s The Decameron, directed by Jeff Baena and starring the likes of Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci, Alison Brie, John C. Reilly, Dave Franco, Nick Offerman, and Fred Armisen. But, what I found even more enjoyable was its depiction of women and their relationships with each other,...

Doctor Who has finally chosen a woman to play the Doctor after 12 men! Yup, that’s over 35 active years of women playing nothing more than sidekicks and love interests until now. Jodie Whittaker stars in the BBC hit show Broadchurch alongside two Doctor Who veterans. BBC announced her as the 13th Doctor through a video, and followed up with an interview so we could get to know our next Doctor a little better. In the interview, she addresses the question of a woman as...
