Michael Strangeways

Website:

Bio: As the Editorial Director, Michael Strangeways writes, edits and does about a million other jobs for Seattle Gay Scene, the Emerald City's most visited LGBTQ website. A semi-proud Midwesterner by birth, he's lived in Seattle since 2000. He's also a film producer who would like you to spend money on viewing the Jinkx Monsoon documentary, "Drag Becomes Him" now making its way around the world via film festivals and illegal downloading. In his spare time, he gets slightly obsessive about his love for old movies, "otters", 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, vintage erotica, kitties, chicken fried steak and David Bowie. But, not necessarily in that order.
