Don’t take the cover too seriously. Lizzo and Beyonce are not at war. But they are competing for your money with new music from each of these powerhouse talents! Our very own Chris Narloch takes a listen and spills all about it. You can read those CD reviews on page 7.
Then, after you do your hair toss and check your nails, you will find all sorts of cool stuff in this new Issue of Outword.
We have an update from Ted Ross on the monkeypox situation and what you can do to keep yourself, and others, safe. Of course, there are a couple of newsie tidbits as well, plus a ton of entertainment news, starting on page 4.
There are many fun things to do and see on Second Saturday in Midtown, there is a new show on Here TV about Transgender fashion models, and we give a shout out to Yountville and its plethora of outdoor dining and other things to do there. Then we get to Lizzo and Beyonce!
Chris Narloch also brings us information on some great, old movies, and some fun new ones — even one that was an ordeal to sit through! Elsewhere in the pages, you will find a wonderful recap of Chris Allan’s memorable trip to Peru – check out the tale and pics on page 15.
Rounding out this issue is the lovely and talented Matt Burlingame with his latest “Out and About with Matt” article.
As always, there is lots to check in on in this shiny new issue of Outword. You know the deal. Grab a paper copy or check us out online, and don’t forget that the August 25 edition is our Anniversary Issue. We will be marking our 27th year of producing Outword and serving the Sacramento LGBTQ+ community. And you can help us celebrate!
