This week, we can't get enough of the new Netflix show GLOW, starring Alison Brie as a struggling actress who gets her big break when she's cast as one of the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling. Watching Brie give her all on the mat inspired us to revisit this story we did with her for our Dec/Jan 2012 issue, back when she was still lighting up the small screen on Mad Men and Community. Enjoy this Flashback Friday reprint of our chat. Then prepare to Netflix 'n' chill. Uptown Girl from Mad Men to Community, Alison Brie lights up the most beloved shows on...

Multimedia artist Jeremy Kost has become synonymous with queer culture and its legacy. His salacious portraits, which capture the red-blooded eroticism of masculinity - as well as his narratives of iconic drag queens - explore (and push) boundaries of gender, sex, and identity. His artistic perspective externalizes the grandiose power of transformation. Kost recently self-published a collection of 66 archival painted polaroids entitled "Like One of Your French Girls," which incorporates his documentation of drag queens from 2009-2012. Starlettes include RuPaul's Drag Race luminaries such as...

Wonder Woman is doing well for herself right now, kicking ass and shattering glass (ceilings, that is) both onscreen and off. Weeks after the eponymous film’s debut, money is still coming in at a steady pace for Warner Bros. Being a commercial and critical success is fantastic, but the power of Wonder Woman lies in its feminism. Its opening weekend was the biggest for a female director – a huge success for women in the arts. Content wise, a man doesn’t show up for a...

“It was like can I take my clothes off? Where are the folds of my boobs and squiggles and random like nostril holes and weird shit that I can do with my body?

I’ve only been talking to Stephanie for a few minutes before she begins to wax poetic about the delightful artistry of the body in all its imperfections. Stephanie is a multimodal...

The X-Files has been confirmed for the 11th season that’ll be out in 2018, and they're already running into problems. Unfortunately, Chris Carter, X-Files creator, has filled the writer’s room entirely with men. That means that the fate of the iconic Dana Scully is in the hands of a bunch of male writers. On top of them all being men, a few of the writers seem a bit under-qualified. Chris Carter, Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong, veteran writers of the show, will be joined...

BUST has the exclusive premiere of Kim Boekbinder’s video for “Head Bitch In Charge (H.B.I.C.),” and this is sure to be your power anthem and fashion inspiration for the summer. Within the first 30 seconds, I was ready to throw on the weirdest shit I could find in my closet, sashay over to a warehouse party, and bless the dancefloor with limb-swinging moves. (So I’ve never actually been to a warehouse party, but I did watch that episode of Girls. I think it is my...

Annie Hart has announced her first solo album, Impossible Accomplice, to drop July 14. One of the album's eight tracks, "Run To You," can be heard for the first time here: “I am really pleased with how it turned out," she says of the track. "For me, it really combines that soft comfortable feeling of being with someone, and there’s music playing and this push and pull of emotions, the quiet of when they send you positive signals, and then the storm of torment that erupts when...
