RuPaul’s Drag Racer, Katya, Talks About Her Past With Sex Work and Stealing $20,000

Katya Zamolodchikova (RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 and All Star’s 2) was a guest on the podcast, LGBTQ with Jeffrey Masters this week, and opened up about past suicide attempts, sex work, and what it’s like to be doing a Russian character in 2017.

Thefull interview is available here and below are some clips of their conversation released here on INTO.

Katya has been “extremely suicidal”:

“I think about suicide every day cause I joke about it. And also I’ve been … I’ve spent a ton of my life extremely suicidal. I tried to kill myself in the shittiest way back then. But I’ve realized now that it was literally just so that I didn’t have to do something that scared the living hell out of me.”

Katya spent a week in a psych hospital after a suicide attempt:

“I’ve tried to, and like I said, and then it was never going to work but it was like a cry for help. It was like a diversionary…diversion tactic. And then I had to spend like a week in a psych hospital, couldn’t leave. And I was scared…I just replaced one scary thing with a whole week of scary shit. So it was really crazy.”

Katya talks about getting paid to sleep with men:

“I basically got to fuck men while I was in drag. Men who were extraordinarily handsome…it actually fucked me up because it got my body used to fucking 10s.”

“There was intimacy, but there was no strings. It was just pure. Sometimes it was a transaction, sometimes it was for money. Other times it was just for fun.”

Katya says they were mostly straight men, but she didn’t question their sexuality

“Straight-identified, for the most part. And I was always very curious and careful to not ask questions that challenged their ideas in their head that they were fighting with.”

Katya says she stole $20,000 from the shop she worked at to pay for drugs and also helped finance a pageant:

“I stole $20,000 from the shop that I worked at…I was addicted–I am addicted to crystal meth.”

“I used a lot for rent, I used a lot for other kinds of drugs…I actually financed some of the girl’s pageants with some stolen money, which I was so into. Like I think I was actually in a program in the pageant as a donor with stolen money. How fucking drag is that, bitch? Miss Gay USA contestant number 12 is generously funded by Brian McCook at Dorothy’s Boutique or whatever and this stolen fucking cash. It’s just amazing.”

“I confessed. And you know what? I’m going to say it. This is maybe worth mentioning because I had … when I did that, that was the last secret I ever had. And that sounds so dramatic and Hollywood.”

Katya says her Russian character was never about being Russian:

“My character was never about being Russian. It was about being confident. What, as an American, what voice would you use for your confident voice if you had no confidence? Russian, obviously. They all sound like they’re angry. They all sound like they know exactly what they’re talking about. And they all sound like they’re a little bit sad about it, so you know it’s the truth.”

Katya says that with everything going on with Russia in the new right now, doing a Russian character sucks:

“Oh, it sucks. You know what, I slept through that 24-hour news cycle where those fucking Russian hookers pissed on some bed. I … piss queen since the jump. Russian drag queen since the jump.

“And then I sleep through the 24 hour new cycle that was literally the pinnacle of my stupid satirical career. I am such an idiot.”

Puerto Rican Gay Bar Bombed After Reopening in Wake of Hurricane Maria

A Puerto Rican gay bar was attacked this weekend in an incident local activists want investigated as a hate crime.

A group of masked figures dressed in all black entered Circo Bar, San Juan’s most popular gay nightclub, at 7:30 on Saturday night. Witnesses say that the assailants threw “incendiary devices” into the bar, which was originally reported in the Puerto Rican newspaper El Vocero.

Reports are scarce about the attack, but some have suggested the crude bomb was a Molotov cocktaila bottle filled with flammable liquid.

No one was killed or harmed in the incident, which took place just weeks after Hurricane Maria did significant damage to the U.S. territory. Circo Bar, which was operating on a generator on Saturday night to provide power to guests, did not experience significant damage.

The attackers fled before police could arrive to extinguish the fire.

San Juan Police Colonel has yet to publicly identify suspects or name a motive for the assault. But LGBTQ activists are calling on the Division of Crimes Against Property and the Division of Explosives and Public Security to determine whether the arson attack was incited by anti-LGBTQ bias.

Pedro Julio Serrano, a Puerto Rican activist, has been one of the leading voices calling attention to the violence on Twitter.

While Serrano confirmed to INTO that local advocates have no knowledge of what was in assailants’ minds during the attack, Serrano tweeted that authorities must “investigate if there is an motivation of hatred.” He added in a separate message to this publication that homophobia is a “probable” cause.

Saturday’s incident took place during an extremely vulnerable time for Puerto Rico’s queer and trans population.

Serrano claimed that the LGBTQ community “has created its own support networks” to cope with the devastation from Hurricane Maria. But like the majority of residents, he said this group “is suffering the lack of essential services.” Many on the island remain without electricity or clean water more than a month after the hurricane first hit.

At the time of writing, more than 51 people have died as a result of the natural disaster. Estimates suggest that it could cost as much at $95 billion to rebuild.

Nick Fager Discusses Need for Queer Friendly Healthcare & His New Startup, Lighthouse

Self-care is an important, yet understated part of our community. As we strive to do away with the stigma around mental and physical health, it’s important that healthcare evolves to meet our needs. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case with queer people and their wellness professionals.

Nick Fager seeks to fix that problem. A therapist in New York, he specializes in LGBTQ issues. With a unique professional perspective on the queer community, he understands their needs more than anyone.

His and Sahir Iqbal’s new startup, Lighthouse, is a network of LGBTQ-affirming healthcare providers. The listing is made up of providers that have been vetted for LGBTQ competency by a team of healthcare professionals. It will match you with doctors, therapists, dentists, surgeons, personal trainers, massage therapists, and other health/wellness professionals in your area.

We recently spoke with Fager about the app, his professional experience, and his personal experience with queer healthcare.

How would you explain your personal experience as a queer person seeking healthcare?
Growing up and even up until recently, I had a lot of experiences with doctors and therapists who didn’t affirm or normalize my experience. Often it was very subtle messages, though sometimes it was overt. One doctor stopped shaking my hand when he learned that I was gay. One therapist told me I was going through a phase. These kinds of experiences were extremely significant in my life. I went through a long period of enormous suffering and anxiety which could have been avoided if I got the right care. When I finally did get to see the right person, everything changed. My experience has made me passionate about making sure that everyone in our community gets the right care.

What kind of therapy do you specialize in?
As a therapist, I specialize in LGBTQ issues. My whole career has been focused on understanding the specific issues of our community, where they originate, and how to work through them. In terms of my theoretical approach to therapy, I’m an emotion focused therapist trained in AEDP.

Why do you find it important for other health/wellness professionals to become more knowledgeable about the queer community?
It’s important for health professionals to become more knowledgeable about the queer community because we have specific healthcare needs and healthcare is not a one-size-fits-all industry. We need providers who are informed, understanding, and nonjudgmental when it comes to PEP and PrEP, hormone therapy, being undetectable, internalized homophobia and transphobia, open relationships, etc. Without proper knowledge, a doctor can discriminate against an LGBTQ person without even realizing it. The smallest of gestures can make someone feel unsafe, and when LGBTQ people experience discrimination in a healthcare setting, we are three times more likely to delay follow up care.

You should never have to walk into your doctor or therapist’s office and think to yourself, “Okay, what parts of myself am I going to share?” If nowhere else, these are the spaces where you need to be your full self so that you can receive the appropriate treatment. If you don’t feel safe enough to express the problem, how are you going to get better?

Do you think that need has gotten worse since the election?
This project really became a reality on the day after the election. We knew at that moment that things weren’t going to get any easier for a long time and so we wanted to make sure that at the very least, the community had safe spaces and quality care. There’s nothing more important than self-care during turbulent times.

How did the Lighthouse as a network come about?
The Lighthouse network was started by a group of LGBTQ doctors and therapists in NYC who came together to solve one glaring problem, which was that quality, LGBTQ affirming care was really hard to find. We live in this city where there are so many resources for the community, and such a huge LGBTQ population, but the link between the two wasn’t really there. We all started calling our friends and colleagues to pitch the idea and the response was almost always the same, “Yes, we need this, why hasn’t this happened already, sign me up.”

How much has it grown since then?
The network is growing pretty rapidly. We have more applications from professionals on a weekly basis than we ever expected, but not everyone is accepted. The most important thing to us is that our network remains safe and intimate so that when you find a provider on our site, you know that you are being connected to someone who is passionate about LGBTQ care and can meet your specific needs.

What’s the vetting process like for professional members?
Our vetting process starts with the application on our site, where we gather information about your LGBTQ training, education, and experience. That information is reviewed by a team of healthcare professionals, and if qualified, we follow that up with a phone call where we go over specific questions for each profession (i.e. if you’re a primary care provider, do you prescribe PEP and PrEP?), and ensure that intake forms are inclusive of all gender identities and sexual orientation. From there, we feel informed enough either to accept the provider or refer to additional LGBTQ training.

What are your goals for the future of the app and the network?
We are developing the app now to go along with the website, and our goal is to expand nationwide in the near term. In urban areas, we want to be the go-to resource for the community when searching for anything health and wellness related, and in parts of the country that have no access to affirming care, we want to be building out our own resources. We also want to create a real sense of community for our users and our providers when they join, so we are putting together regular wellness-based events, lectures, and eventually conferences and retreats. We’d like to create something that doesn’t really exist – an LGBTQ wellness community.

Hillary Clinton Calls Trump’s Attacks on LGBTQ Rights ‘Striking and Scary’

Hillary Clinton called out Donald Trump’s record on LGBTQ rights at a Saturday event hosted by the Human Rights Campaign.

“The attacks on the LGBTQ community here at home and around the world are striking and scary,” the former Secretary of State told attendees at an HRC dinner hosted in Washington, D.C. “I can only imagine what it’s like to be in the position that so many people still find themselves in in our country.”

“I do know what it feels like to be torn down and attacked, and I want you to know that I’m with you,” she continued.

Although Trump claimed that he would be a “friend” to the LGBTQ community as president, Clinton pointed to the rollback of queer and trans equality since Trump’s January inauguration. She specifically criticized a July policy banning transgender people from serving openly in the military, which was announced in a series of tweets. (Note: That policy was blocked by a federal court on Monday.)

“You know and [Trump] knows that transgender people have fought and died for this country,” Clinton said, claiming it was “insulting and wrong” for Trump to reverse an Obama-era policy announced a year earlier.

Clinton further took the Trump administration to task for its support of a baker who refused to serve gay couples. In the pending Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the Department of Justice issued an amicus brief supporting the right to discriminate against LGBTQ people.

“It is just wrong that in 2017 you can lose your job, lose your home, or, if this administration gets its way, be denied a wedding cake simply because of who you are or who you love,” she said.

Clinton expressed her continued support for the Equality Act, which would add characteristics like sexual orientation and gender identity to Title VII protections under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The legislation currently prohibits discrimination on the basis of characteristics like sex, race, national origin, and religion.

The Department of Justice ruled earlier this month that trans federal workers aren’t covered by Title VII, reversing the Obama administration’s interpretation of the legislation.

The White House has also moved to nullify workplace protections for LGBTQ federal employees. During the very same week as the Title VII policy was announced, Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a 35-page memo that could allow people of faith to fire queer and trans people if their employment conflicts with a government contractor’s “sincerely held religious beliefs.”

“We need to be agitating to pass the Equality Act,” Clinton said. She claimed that LGBTQ people “cannot rely on this administration or the Supreme Court to uphold” their rights.

The 2016 presidential candidate, who won the popular vote but lost the electoral college, thanked members of the LGBTQ community for their support during her campaign. Seventy-eight percent of queer and transgender people who cast a ballot in last year’s election voted for Clinton over her Republican challenger. Exit polls showed just 14 percent of LGBTQ voters went for Trump, a historic low.

“I’m so grateful for the support I’ve received from so many of you in the LGBTQ community over the years,” she said. “I think it’s fair to say you’ve made me a better first lady, a better senator, a better Secretary of State, a better presidential nominee, a better person.”

HRC president Chad Griffin signaled that Clinton would continue to be an advocate of LGBTQ equality in a non-governmental capacity.

“Hillary Clinton has spent a lifetime fighting for the vulnerable, marginalized, and oppressedand she’s not about to back down now,” Griffin claimed in a press release. “As we confront powerful political forces built on hate and fear, Hillaryand the majority of American voters who backed herhave continued to champion the values that truly make America great.”

Clinton, who famously remarked that “gay rights are human rights,” was honored alongside Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Both were awarded Saturday for their LGBTQ allyship.

Transgender Woman Stephanie Montez Found Dead in Texas

On October 21, authorities in Texas’ Nueces county found the body of 47-year-old Stephanie Montez shot to death on a county road, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports.

Nueces county medical examiner identified Montez under her birth name and her gender assigned at birth.

The Caller-Times spoke with Brittany Ramirez, a friend of Montez’s for 30 years. They met when Montez performed in drag.

“She just had a great outlook on life. She was very supportive of everyone,” Ramirez said. “She really enjoyed life. She was one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet.”

According to medical examiners, Montes had been shot in the chest, abdomen and shoulder.

Corpus Christi LGBTQ groups have organized a trans rights rally outside the Corpus Christi federal courthouse at 2 p.m. on Nov. 4.

Montez’s is reportedly the 22nd case of a transgender homicide in the United States this year after the September killing of Missouri teen Ally Lee Steinfeld.

Transgender Troops Will Be Allowed to Serve Openly After Judge Blocks Trump’s Trans Military Ban

A federal judge blocked key components of Donald Trump’s ban on transgender people serving openly in the military in a Monday decision that paves the way for them to enlist.

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, who serves on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, granted a preliminary injunction that will halt the policy, which the president first announced in a July tweetstorm.

Trump claimed that allowing trans troops to join the armed forces would entail “tremendous medical costs and disruption,” claims that were subsequently debunked.

The National Center for Lesbian Rights and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders, a pair of LGBTQ advocacy groups, filed a lawsuit challenging the ban in August, arguing that the policy “already resulted in immediate, concrete injury to Plaintiffs by unsettling and destabilizing plaintiffs’ reasonable expectation of continued service.”

Kollar-Kotelly said in her statement that plaintiffs were likely to win their suit.

“On the record before the court, there is absolutely no support for the claim that the ongoing service of transgender people would have any negative effects on the military at all,” she stated in a written opinion. “In fact, there is considerable evidence that it is the discharge and banning of such individuals that would have such effects.”

But the federal judge stopped short of taking action against the Trump administration’s refusal to pay for troops’ “sex reassignment surgical procedures.” Kollar-Kotelly stated that the matter isn’t under her purview from the bench.

BuzzFeed, though,reports that the interim policy instituted by Gen. James Mattismandates the Pentagon provide those often-life-saving services.

The advocacy groups behind the suit celebrated the judge’s ruling.

“This is a complete victory for our plaintiffs and all transgender service members, who are now once again able to serve on equal terms and without the threat of being discharged,” said Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights, in a statement. “We are grateful to the court for recognizing the gravity of these issues and putting a stop to this dangerous policy.

Minter added that the ban has “wreaked havoc in the lives of transgender service members and their families.”

Reversing a year-old policy instituted by former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, Trumpsigned his proposed policy into effect this August. The president, who announced the decision while Gen. Mattis was on vacation,gave the military until Marchto determine how it would be implemented.

Following the injunction, Kollar-Kotelly said that the military will “revert to the status quo” prior to Trump’s ban. That decision will reportedly allow trans people to enlist as soon as December.

Will Call Me By Your Name Win Best Picture at the Oscars?

Ahead of Call Me By Your Name’s Nov. 24 American release, as critics and fans in festival cities fall in love with the film, whispers have begun to circulate about the film’s Oscar chances. Can an LGBTQ-themed movie win best picture two years in a row? Can Timothée Chalamet or Armie Hammer win Oscars for their work as star-crossed lovers Elio and Oliver? And more importantly, if it does win, what does that mean for the Academy Awards?

You see, Moonlight put a major crack in the dam. Before, no LGBTQ-themed film had won best picture; just the year before, Todd Haynes’ masterful Carol couldn’t even get nominated. If Call Me By Your Name could make it two in a row? That would be a sign of major change in an awards body that has had trouble in the past rewarding queer narratives.

But how likely is such a win? Let’s take a look at the awards landscape and determine just how well Call Me By Your Name could and likely will do with the Oscars.

Technical Categories

Unfortunately, because Call Me By Your Name’s score uses several pre-existing pieces of music, it will likely be disqualified from the best original score race. (A shame, because the score is such a highlight of the film.) Do expect it to show up in best original song for one or both of Sufjan Stevens’ two originals, though as of now, “Mystery of Love” seems more likely to get a nod over “Visions of Gideon.” Both would likely lose to “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman, a song written by new Oscar favorites Pasek and Paul (La La Land).

The other categories all seem like long-shots: Call Me By Your Name’s sound isn’t remarkable other than for its music, while the pitch-perfect costume design (watch how Elio’s fashion transforms over the film’s runtime) is likely to be ignored for being less flashy. Cinematography is a possibility, especially considering director of photography Sayombhu Mukdeeprom’s love of luxurious, languishing shots, though it would likely lose to Dunkirk or Blade Runner 2049 there. And the editing, while perfect for the film, is too subtle to get noticed.

Likely nominations: Original Song, Cinematography
Likely wins: none

Best Adapted Screenplay and Director

Screenplay is likely Call Me By Your Name’s absolute best chance at a win. James Ivory, Luca Guadagnino and Walter Fasano’s script is a remarkable adaptation of André Aciman’s novel, pulling the world out of Elio’s sometimes suffocating narration and bringing a more level-headed view. It keeps exactly what it needs and discards anything that would make the film feel like too much. It’s an excellent work of adaptation, it will certainly be nominated, and it will probably win.

Meanwhile, Guadagnino’s best director nomination is dependent on how well the film is received as a whole. We’re going to bet on him, but like Todd Haynes for Carol two years ago, he could easily find himself snubbed.

Likely nominations: Director, Adapted Screenplay
Likely wins: Adapted Screenplay

Acting Categories

Michael Stuhlbarg is the only actor I’d call a lock for a nomination. As Elio’s supportive father, Stuhlbarg gets the film’s absolute best scene and monologue. He’s what you remember leaving and that’s pretty impressive, considering Call Me By Your Name includes a peach-fucking scene. Like Patricia Arquette before him, his final speech should be enough to seal his chances. That said, Willem Dafoe is a likely nominee for The Florida Project, and considering his career, he may be able to take the win over Stuhlbarg.

I hope for the Academy’s sake that they nominate Timothée Chalamet in best actor, because the gay riot that breaks out if he doesn’t will not be pretty. His is the best film performance of the year, and while he won’t win (Gary Oldman is too towering in Darkest Hour), he deserves the recognition of a nod.

Whither Armie Hammer, you ask? Unfortunately, despite his full-court press in the media, Stuhlbarg leading him in best supporting actor likely means he’ll be left out. Same goes for Amira Casar as Elio’s mother, though if I spoke honestly, I’m more sad for the latter than the former.

Likely nominations: Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor
Likely wins: none

Best Picture

Hoo boy. So, i’ll say this: I’m more confident than ever that Call Me By Your Name is getting nominated. At first, its hype seemed too tenuous, too connected to Sundance Film Festival (where critics are put through such an emotional grinder that reactions can sometimes be skewed remember Birth of a Nation?). But the film has survived several festivals with buzz firmly in tact. It’s in.

Can it win? Probably not. Though there’s tremendous power in the specificity of Elio and Oliver’s story, it’s not the kind of big, sweeping cinema that typically wins here. Even Moonlight, which also told a specific, queer story, managed to impress through its structure and scope in a way that Call Me By Your Name doesn’t quite manage. Dunkirk, The Shape of Water and The Post are all more likely winners.

But that’s OK! Even if it just walks away with six or seven nominations and one Oscar win, that’ll be plenty impressive. Carol couldn’t even manage one, while Moonlight’s three were considered impressive. Change comes slowly; we’re fortunate that said change is as compelling and beautiful as Call Me By Your Name is.

Likely to be nominated: yes
Likely to win: no

‘House of Cards’ Creator Beau Willimon Calls Spacey Allegations ‘Deeply Troubling,’ Supports Anthony Rapp

Beau Willimon, the creator of the US Kevin Spacey-led House of Cards, issued a statement Monday morning on Twitter in response to a BuzzFeed article in which actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making a drunken sexual advance on him when he was 14 years old.

In the statement, Willimon called the allegations “deeply troubling,” and offered support to Rapp.

“I feel for Mr. Rapp and I support his courage,” Willimon said.

On Sunday night, Spacey responded to the allegations against him by coming out of the closet on Twitter.

Kevin Spacey Doesn’t Remember Alleged Underaged Sexual Assault, Comes Out as Gay

Actor Kevin Spacey responded to a lengthy BuzzFeed article on Sunday night in which actor Anthony Rapp, star of Rent and Star Trek: Discovery, alleged that Spacey climbed on top of him in bed when the actor was 14 years old and made a sexual advance.

On Twitter, Spacey said, “I honestly do not remember the encounter,” which took place over 30 years ago. He called the alleged assault of a child, “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.”

Spacey then decided to use this moment in time, a moment when he is being accused of sexually assaulting a minor, to come out as a gay man.

“This story has encouraged me to address other things about my life. I know that there are other stories out there about me and that some have been fueled by the fact that I have been so protective of my privacy,” he said. He added that he has dated men and women throughout his life and said, “I now choose to live as a gay man.”

According to Rapp’s story, he met Spacey at a party in New York while they were both in Broadway shows. Spacey invited Rapp to a party at his apartment and when Rapp arrived, he was the only non-adult at the party. He wandered into the bedroom to watch TV. Later that night, once everyone had left, Spacey appeared in the bedroom door drunk.

“He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold,” Rapp told BuzzFeed. “He was trying to seduce me.”

He added, “I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.”

Rapp said that he decided to come forward after the allegations against Harvey Weinstein “not simply to air a grievance but to try to shine another light on the decades of behavior that have been allowed to continue because many people, including myself, have remained silent.”

Rapp has been out publicly since 1992, according to BuzzFeed. Prior to Sunday night, when Spacey issued the tweet coming out, his sexuality had been a matter of speculation in the media. A famous 1997 Esquire cover story announced that “Kevin Spacey Has a Secret,” and in 2010 the actor told The Daily Beast that he would never discuss his sexuality openly.

“I have not given up my right to privacy,” he told the Daily Beast. “It’s just a line I’ve never crossed and never will. No one’s personal life is in the public interest. It’s gossip, bottom line. End of story.”

Spacey later joked about coming out of the closet at the 2017 Tony Awards.

Earlier in October, journalist Heather Unruh claimed on Twitter that Spacey had assaulted a loved one. The tweet said that she was emboldened by the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

“Time the dominoes fell,” she said.

Kathy Griffin Claps Back at Andy Cohen and Drags TMZ

A day after Andy Cohen told a TMZ reporter “I don’t know her” when asked about comedian Kathy Griffin who he is replacing as co-host of CNN’s New Years special with pal Anderson Cooper, she has clapped back.

And even has some words for TMZ founder Harvey Levin who she begins the video by doxing on camera and releasing his personal number to the public.

The explosive YouTube clip was uploaded Saturday morning, and the comedian who is still reeling from the backlash following her infamous Donald Trump beheading photo tells viewers that not only does her ex-boss Andy Cohen “know her”, but that he’s offered her cocaine before appearing on his live show.

When she turns her gaze to that the entirety of TMZ, she puts out a warning to those that go to the site for news and gossip that its leader, Levin, speaks with the president of the United States a few times a week.

And she even states that the entire entity is misogynistic.

Watch the 17-minute clip below, which she states will be taken down due to the releasing of private information, an issue she seems unbothered by. So much so that she asks her fans to record video and keep releasing it so it’s not erased from the internet.
