  • Danny Pintauro is Back and He’s the Boss

    3 APR 2024 · Actor Danny Pintauro first hit the big screen over four decades ago, in the disturbing film Cujo. Having played in dramatic themes at an even younger age for the soap opera As the World Turns, he was no stranger to giving it his all on set. Immediately following Cujo he was cast on one of the most popular sitcoms of the 80s, Who’s the Boss? For 8 seasons and 196 episodes, we saw Danny, as Jonathan Bower, literally grow up on our screens. Having difficulty finding acting work by leaving his sitcom personality behind, he entered public life that would only return to the media’s eye by way of a forced coming out, and coming out as HIV. But now he’s back, he’s reentering Hollywood with a renewed confidence, a mission, and a new body. In this episode we talk about being a child actor and the isolation that often came with it, living life beyond Hollywood, dealing with the stigma of being gay and having HIV at a different time, what it’s like to be back in showbiz, getting into shape, embracing his adulthood, and the stereotypes he must overcome to get back to his passion of acting. We talk about it all…check it out.   Hosted by Alexander Rodriguez @AlexanderisOnAir You can check out our in-depth chat with him in the current issue of GED Magazine now on newsstands or at

  • Darwin Del Fabro is Celebrating His Non-Binary & Brazilian Culture

    7 MAR 2024 · Talking to Darwin Del Fabro is like talking to the embodiment of a bona fide muse. With an ethereal beauty, they celebrate their non-binary side, and with well-crafted words of artistry, they inspire with every phrase that lilts out of their mouth. An old soul in a youthful body, their manners and grace are from yesteryear, while their modern ideas and work ethic make them a present-day mover and shaker in the entertainment field. There is little left that they haven’t accomplished. A successful singer, actor, producer, fashionista, and more, they live and breathe entertainment with a resume that most other artists don’t even come close to in a lifetime. We, in the US, are just getting to appreciate the person who has come to us via Brazil. US audiences first saw Darwin in Blumhouse’s queer-themed horror film They/Them, while they have celebrated a lucrative career in stage and screen and music in Brazil. In this episode we talk about the culture of Brazil, being queer in Brazil, getting into the biz very early on, his move to New York and learning English while studying musical theatre, his creative process when making music, his return to Brazil as non-binary after 8 years away, his latest album Revisiting Elis Regina, his role in and love for horror films, and so much more!

    14 LUG 2023 · Bro-lesque has been popping up all over SoCal nightclubs. Bringing glitz and glamour with artistry and hot boys, it is a call back to the classic burlesque shows with enough modern flair to make it unique in the market. Bro-lesque’s creator and frontman Lockhart Brownlie is no stranger to stages. Lockhart started training in dance at an early age when he would sit in the back of his sister’s dance classes. After being one of the most sought-after choreographers in Australia, he would start his international career by working with Katy Perry on her two world tours, performing at Super Bowl Half Time, presidential campaign shows, films, and multiple televised award shows around the world.

  • Jason Stuart: Comedic Trailblazer

    29 GIU 2023 · SoCal audiences have known comedian Jason Stuart for a long time. Popping up at gay events, emceeing Prides, performing stand-up at comedy clubs for gay and straight nights, making jokes on red carpets, stealing the spotlight at house parties, and flirting with boys at the bar is just a normal week for Jason. His comedy is just a part of his wildly colorful career. As an actor, he has over 265 film and TV credits to his name, from playing that funny character that always gets the zingers, to serious and even (gasp!) straight parts in films like The Birth of A Nation, to David E. Kelly’s Goliath (starring Billy Bob Thornton). You never know where his signature expressions will pop up next, he is just as home acting for a major studio as he is supporting an LGBTQ web series. His co-star celebrity list reads like Entertainment Weekly’s Who’s Who with names that include George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, J.K. Simmons, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Angela Lansbury, Damon Wayans, Jai Rodriguez, and on and on…always holding his own. As an openly gay actor, Jason is a trailblazer for the community who, this Pride season, celebrates the 30th anniversary of his coming out publicly on the Geraldo Show declaring to the nation: “I’m gay, deal with it!” Long before even Ellen came out, there was Jason, setting the stage for entertainers to come out publicly, even at the risk of limiting his blossoming career. Recently he has received accolades and rave reviews for Smothered, now in season 2, about a Jewish middle-aged couple trying to salvage their relationship because they can’t afford to get divorced. On this episode of US of Gay, we chat with Jason about the gay culture when he was growing up, why he came out on national TV, the evolution of LGBTQ in the media, his stand-up comedy, what he’s learned from life, all about his current hit Smothered, finally getting the recognition for his work, and much more!

  • Drag Race's Salina EsTitties: Drag Isn't Dangerous

    2 MAG 2023 · She’s loud, proud, and Latinaaaaa….she’s Salina EsTitties! This SoCal diva has made her way into Drag Race fans’ hearts, oftentimes stealing the spotlight during this last season. Whereas some of the queens were focused on getting camera time, spewing out one-liners for the editors, or becoming viral memes, Salina was there to compete. Her sincerity lept off the screen as we celebrated her highs, her lows, and her sorrows. A sober, gay, Latino, Weho fixture, she unabashedly challenges the norms in all those categories. From being homeless to winning the Golden Boot (all in good fun) on Drag Race, she promotes self-confidence, hard work, body positivity, and activism through example.

  • Prince Joshua: For the Love of DILFs Influencer, Activist, and…Himbo?

    19 APR 2023 · You may be familiar with Prince Joshua from his social media, his presence in LGBTQ nightlife, or from the recent splash he made from his entrance on For the Love of DILFs, the queer answer to a dating reality show that matches DILFS and himbos. (For those unfamiliar, himbos refers to an attractive but not very bright male.) Before you hit the cancel culture button, the term himbos on this show is actually used as a foil as we find out there’s more going on with the contestants than just a hot body. Like the show, Prince Joshua has a veneer of good looks and sexual energy. When you look further, you find there’s a lot more going on when you look at Joshua’s educated activism, especially when it comes to building bridges with our trans community. That peeling back of the facade was the reason Joshua did the show in the first place. Prince Joshua graces the cover of the April issue of GED Magazine, which you can check out on newsstands or at On this episode of US of Gay, Prince Joshua chats with his…from his bed! We talk about where his title comes from, how anyone can claim their royalty, his early life in Idaho, being raised in a religious environment, what spirituality looks like for him today, what being an influencer means, his future goals, the celebration of sexuality in today’s age, his future goals, his body issues, and more. We also get the BTS tea from his time on For the Love of DILFS and what he learned about himself and our gay culture from doing the show. Did he find love? You’ll have to listen and find out. Things get deep as we talk about his sister Rose’s coming out as trans, what we can learn from the trans community, how the gay community can support our trans family, and the straight community’s obligation to support our LGBTQ political efforts. All that and more with host Alexander Rodriguez.
