WATCH: Logan Lynn Hosting “NewNowNext” on MTV’s Logo Network – Now on YouTube! (VIDEO)

Logan Lynn Water Tower - York Nebraska (2013)

Check out baby Logan’s first time being on network TV! To say I was freaking out here is an understatement.

Filmed in June 2008 at MTV studios in New York City, this hour-long episode of “NewNowNext” (Logo’s music video countdown series which ran from 2005 to 2012) premiered on September 7th, 2008. The show aired many times on TVs in over 26,000,000 homes and was picked up by Time/Warner On Demand for the month of October 2008. This episode also included the premier of my video “Feed Me To The Wolves“, which was nominated for video of the year by Logo in 2008.

The channel went on to feature 7 of my videos on “NewNowNext” and “The Click List” over the course of the 7 years the show was on the air.

Logan Lynn Interview On Manhunt.com This Week – Summer Tour, Christian Bigotry, and Bears…Oh My!

Logan Lynn Interview On Manhunt Daily (June 2013)

I was interviewed by Manhunt.com this week for Manhunt Daily. We chatted about my upcoming summer tour, Christian bigotry, and tall hairy dudes. Read it on the very N.S.F.W Manhunt site HERE, or just keep reading below for the transcript:

From Manhunt.com: (June 26th, 2013)

Logan Lynn’s musical career has been a roller coaster ride from the very beginning. From his first professional music effort at 17, a mixtape, that ended up causing him to stay off the stage due to stage fright, to climbing back into the spotlight with a little help from The Dandy Warhols, his passion for writing music has made him a favorite of the Logo Network, and now he’s headlining theAccidental Bear Queer Music Tour. He took a moment to answer some questions about what it’s all been about.

Manhunt:  Speaking of Accidental Bears – do you consider yourself an otter, a cub, a bear or none of the above?

Logan Lynn: I mean, I’m a tall, hairy guy who likes hairy guys. Does that make me one of those? If so, I’m good with it… So long as it doesn’t limit me somehow.

What advantages do you think you gain from being a musician who is gay?

My “Burning Your Glory” video was one of the first ever shown by Logo when MTV first created the channel, and they went on to air every music video I released from 2008 through 2012 before their weekly video countdown show “NewNowNext” was canceled – 7 videos in all, each time being broadcast into something like 26 million homes. I hosted the show twice, was on commercials for the network constantly for 2 years, my video “Feed Me To The Wolves” was named one of the “Top 10 Videos of the Year” by Logo, and I did countless events and interviews by way of that relationship in the years since. That kind of cultural visibility just simply would not have happened had I not been an OUT musician.

Monsoon Season – An Interview with RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 Contestant Jinkx Monsoon

(Originally Published on QBlog and SMYRC on 12/5/2012)

The contestants for Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race have been announced and our very own Jinkx Monsoon is one of them! Jinkx’s drag roots started at SMYRC, one of Q Center‘s LGBTQ Youth & Young Adult programs and drop-in center, and I had the chance to chat with her this week about her experience as a former SMYRC youth-turned-TV-star! Find our interview just below the videos…

Watch Jinkx Monsoon’s “Meet The Queens” video for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 here:

 

Logan Lynn: Hey Jinkx! Thanks for taking the time to talk with me today! First off, Condragulations on your casting for Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Was this the first time you had tried out for the show?

Jinkx Monsoon: This was the first time I tried out. I had been considering auditioning since season 2, but it just never felt right. When I watched Season 4 however, I became really inspired. Not only was I inspired by the intensely unique Sharon Needles, but also by Chad Michaels who competed the entire time with class and compassion. The season 4 cast contained so much variety and individuality, that I finally said to myself “why not go for it?” I woke up one morning and it just felt like it was what I had to do. From that moment on, I went full force with my audition material and I was determined to do my damnedest to get on that show.

LL: Ah, yes. Determination strikes again! In recent years you have made quite a name for yourself in the Seattle drag scene. Would you say that your drag career began at SMYRC’s drag night?

JM: My Drag career most definitely began at SMYRC. Ages ago, when I was a SMYRC youth, I liked to get involved with organizing some the community events. One year for our Queer Winter Formal, the theme was “Fairy Tale” or something of the like. I had put together a small drag show to happen in the middle of the dance and I decided that I would dress up as the Queen of Hearts (one of my first times in true drag) for the event. The response was quite positive and I felt empowered to see where this could go. I started doing drag more and more at SMYRC for open mic. nights and other events and soon I was a full fledged baby drag queen. I had to have a name, so I used my SMYRC nickname: Jinkx. And it just seemed to work. Soon I was performing at SMYRC, The Escape (The all ages gay night club) and at little events here and there. But SMYRC was my home. It gave me a place to experiment with drag in a loving, supportive, judgement free zone.

LL: That is such a special experience! What brought you to SMYRC initially?

JM: I came out at a very early age. I was about 14 in middle school when I came out and I had Read the rest of this entry »
