La Cage aux Folles opened this past weekend presented by StageWorks Fresno, and I believe that this is the Fresno premiere of this show. This is a show that I have always wanted to see so I was very excited. As always, StageWorks Fresno did not disappoint!

& Neil Plakcy


In honor of Pride, this month we are featuring several LGBTQ+ authors and characters. When I was looking around for books to include, I stumbled upon Neil S. Plakcy’s series featuring Special Agent Angus Green and noticed that his latest book, Survival is A Dying Art, was a finalist for the 2019 Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Mystery. I decided that this was the perfect choice and I am very glad that I did!
