We have two strong, female voices who are solo acts with anthems that make you want to hit the dance floor. The disco survivor vs. the mother monster. Gaynor vs. Gaga. “I Will Survive” vs. “Born This Way.”

***Go to the Top 8 here.***

 

The first round of Watermark’s “March Fabness” is complete as we go into spring in search of the Ultimate LGBTQ Anthem.

Mother Monster is Gaga for Tampa

Anyone who saw Lady Gaga’s Halftime Show at the Super Bowl (and with more than 100 million people tuning in, it’s likely most of you did) saw the goddess that is Mother Monster put on one of the hottest shows to ever take the field.

Op-Ed: Orlando Democratic Chair Wes Hodge on privilege and patriotism in the face of the new administration

From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first.” Donald Trump, listen to me loud and clear, this is NOT my America.
