The Rhythm, Olympics, or Queen Sugar is Gonna Get You! (Music Festivals, Olympics, Ava DuVernay, Queen Sugar, LGBT Olympians, Lionel Richie)

Episode 43

The Olympics are here and it’s hella sexy, between the names, the shiftlessness, and the USA Men’s Gymnastics team who are ‘thirsty’ for some attention- it might be too much for James to handle. So we’ll switch gears and look over the history of LGBT representation and involvement in the Olympics, as we hit record breaking numbers this year. Nnekay has the low down on a new show being headed by two Black Queens of art and entertainment called Queen Sugar. Led by Ava Devernery, it serves as a rally cry to female directors behind a new project on OWN. Who are these ladies collaborating on a new project, and what’s it about?

This could be the last episode for our Korner kid James, but before he goes he’ll tell all about his adventures at his first ever music festival ‘Outside Lands’, and he’s got three words for you: Lionel Mutha Fuckin’ Richie… ok that was four.
