Michael Strangeways

Website:

Bio: As the Editorial Director, Michael Strangeways writes, edits and does about a million other jobs for Seattle Gay Scene. A semi-proud Midwesterner by birth, with the waist line to prove it, he's lived in Seattle since 2000. In his spare time, he gets slightly obsessive about his love for old movies, the novels of Angela Thirkell, "otters", RuPaul's Drag Race, vodka, chocolate, "I,Claudius", Lizzie Borden, Natural disasters, show tunes, Weimar era Germany, flea markets, pop surrealistic art, the sex lives of Hollywood actors both living and dead, the films of Joe Gage, kitties, chicken fried steak and David Bowie. But, not necessarily in that order.
