Right now the LGBTQ community — and the country in general — is looking for people we can truly consider heroes. Luckily we have one in activist and documentarian Moises Serrano, the face of Forbidden: Undocumented & Queer in Rural America. The documentary follows Serrano, who fell in love with a country that refused to recognize his full humanity, both as an undocumented immigrant and as a gay man. Forbidden is an illustration of the intersection of queer and immigrant issues.
From the first chords or the first hint of lyrics, the voice is simply unmistakable. Inaya Day has made her mark on the music scene with hits like “Nasty Girl” “Keep Pushin” and her latest, the divine “Love Is In The Air”! She is hitting Convention Hall in Asbury Park N.J. this weekend the Louie DeVito’s Dance Party, and along with artists like Reina and Robin S, she will be giving us a night full of house music jubilation!
Since she stormed the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” workroom with an ear-piercing scream and a high fashion look, Sasha Velour was one of the girls to watch on this season of the hit reality show, which saw record ratings after premiering on VH1 this year. I sat down to chat with Sasha where we discussed snagging the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar”, what she wants her legacy to be, and she shared with me how she is taking the title and the responsibility very seriously.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
