Tan France is the fashion guy on the Netflix reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (now just called Queer Eye), the current first season of which takes on Atlanta. Tan, who secretly enrolled in a fashion school before telling his British-Pakistani folks about it, fearing they wouldn’t think it proper enough.
A wacky presence on NYC’s drag scene and the winner of the Glam award for Best Comedy Performer of 2017, Ari Kiki does funny lip synchs to pop diva songs, along with all sorts of raunchy shtick and physical stunts. The New York-born and raised queen (who performs at places like Stonewall and Phoenix Bar and who sang with me at a November duets show) stands out from the pack for daring to be enjoyably off-kilter in a Divine-ish sort of way.
Nothing brings people together like a good, old showtune—something written for a stage musical, but which has breakout appeal for groups of folk not playing characters, just themselves. Something about the songs’ inherent sweep, spirit, emotion, and sometimes humor makes these tunes well suited to piano bars—or even to parties—as the crowd connects via familiar sounds that have theatrical life to them.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
