Groundbreaking Drama 'The L Word' Ends Its Run

The L Word is making a come back. Phase 1 was there for it all. Check out when NPR interviewed some Phase folks when the series was first ending.

Showtime's series The L Word says goodbye Sunday night after six years as one of the few outlets for lesbian characters on mainstream TV. Ilene Chaiken, the show's creator, and actress Laurel Holloman talk to host Jacki Lyden about what they'll miss when the show is gone.

Meet Tezrah!

As a Fairfax, Virginia native, Tezrah learned to play classical piano at age five, which laid the foundation for her future investigation into computer music programs. Before pursuing a professional career in the music industry, Tezrah graduated with a pre-medical degree in Neuroscience from William & Mary, attended the Harvard School of Design Summer Program, and was accepted into the Graduate Architecture Program at Catholic University. She also played semi-pro soccer before her full immersion into the DJ profession.

Today, Tezrah reigns in her fourth year of DJing in the Washington DC area, specializing in Top 40, electronic dance music, Hip Hop, and other genres. Formerly known as DJ Deedub, she is hailed as one of DC's and the LGBTQ community's brightest stars. Her sound is eclectic, combining the newest music seamlessly with older classic songs. Winner of the DJ Battle for Her HRC for 2014 and 2015, headliner at the 9:30 Club, and headliner for a crowd of 5,000+ at Hampton Roads Pride 2016, she has garnered a solid following from all over DC, Maryland, and Virginia.

Meet The CooLots,

The CooLots are intersectionality personified. The Washington, D.C.-based band embodies a sound that the RAW community describes as a “melting pot of different styles and talents [that] come together to create feelings never experienced before.”

The talented individuals that form this eclectic band carry a distinct style all their own, however they come together to create a synergetic group that appeals to the eccentric in us all. The CooLots effortless move across a spectrum of genres including rock, alternative, indie, soul, and rhythm and blues, just to name a few. Their unbridled musicality is something akin to the sounds of No Doubt, M.I.A. Paramore, Sade, Staind, System of a Down, Jimi Hendrix, and N.E.R.D.

Meet H O M O S U P E R I O R!

HOMOSUPERIOR
At just over a year old, Homosuperior out of Washington, D.C., are hitting the ground running and spreading their wings unabashedly as a transcore/queercore punk band. The group—Anderson on guitar, KC on bass, Kit on drums, and Josh on vocals—formed on New Year’s Eve of 2014 and started writing songs shortly afterwards.

The members of Homosuperior were all out by the time they started the band. As Kit says, “Starting Homosuperior wasn’t a response to being queer in a punk scene. Wanting more queer and trans representation in punk was and is definitely a driving force, though.” They exist to have fun and create their garagey, distorted version of punk, while also giving visibility to LBGTQIA people in the DIY music scene.

Meet Alesia Michelle Lucas!

Steering the Party Ship all night long with her MC magic will be Alesia Michelle. Here is short low-down on Alesia. Get to know her better on July 1st at Phazefest 2017 DC's Queer Music Festival:

Alesia decided to use her gift of the gab for good. Radio personality, party starter and DC native— Alesia is often seen laughing around town. Alesia appeared on Showtime at the Apollo (twice)- and did not get booed. She was once voted, “Most Likely to Talk to a Stranger” an apt award for this loquacious lady who has talked to stars and strangers alike.

Meet The DC Kings!

The DC Kings performed monthly shows from 2000-2015 and are no longer active. They are reuniting for Phazefest 2017!

They were an avant-garde performance-art troupe of gender variant performers located in and around Washington, DC.

They were a diverse group in race, gender, sexual identity, age, and background. Our performances included but are not limited to male impersonation, singing, lip syncing, theatrical skits (comedy, drama, politics, etc). One of our unique features is often our performance pushed beyond gender boundaries. In March of 2000 we began as a drag king troupe. However, this term is now loosely held by us as we have since incorporated several other styles of empowering performance in to our shows. We are all DC Kings, and we are all part of the longest-running monthly drag king show in the World!

Meet Kellyn Marie Goler!

Kellyn Marie Goler lives something of a double life. As a lawyer in Washington, DC, Kellyn uses words to advocate and counsel. As a singer-songwriter, she uses words to captivate and evoke emotion. Kellyn writes pop songs imbued with elements of folk–and folk songs imbued with elements of pop–and her sound is soulful and embracing. Her debut album, Echolocation, is an unguarded exploration of the experience of love and is at once haunting, plaintive, empowering, and hopeful. Echolocation was released in October 2015 on Rock Creek Heart Records and is available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Tidal, and most other online music retailers.
