Make It Work: An Interview With Project Runway Season 13 Finalist (and Fan Favorite) Emily Payne

Emily Payne Interview with Logan Lynn (2014) Project Runway Season 13

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 10/29/2014)

With the Project Runway Season 13 reunion show airing this week, I thought now would be a perfect time to catch up with my darling friend (and Season 13 finalist), Emily Payne, about her time as a contestant on the show this year and what life is like now that it’s over.

Payne is a San Francisco-based designer and full-blown visionary. Overseeing two fashion houses of her own creation — Leathertongue and Devon Rose — and balancing motherhood and newfound mainstream television fame, Emily is riding the Project Runway rollercoaster with a level of grace fans of the show have not seen before. If you caught any of this season, you have no doubt already fallen head-over-heels in love with this sweet, talented creature.

Watch Emily Payne’s pre-season designer home visit video, then read our chat below – and be sure to tune into Lifetime Thursday for the reunion. The trailer promises fireworks!


Logan Lynn: Hey Emily! Thanks for chatting with me today. Anyone who has been following your run on this 13th season of Project Runway knows that you took your final bow as a contestant on the episode just before the finale. How does it feel to finally be able to talk about it after having to keep so painfully quiet for so long? Read the rest of this entry »

Feminism, Ebola and Donuts: Lena Dunham and Carrie Brownstein Make Like Portland (VIDEO)

Carrie Brownstein and Lena Dunham in Portland (2014) by Logan Lynn

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 10/22/2014)

This past Sunday night in Portland, GIRLS star and Not That Kind Of Girl author Lena Dunham completed her ten city book tour, “Not That Kind Of Tour“, with an intimate conversation with Portlandia star, Sleater-Kinney rock icon and Portland royalty Carrie Brownstein, live on stage at the Newmark Theatre.

Sponsored by Powell’s Books, the event sold out in just six hours — and it’s no wonder. Both of these smart, funny, talented women are at the top of their game right now, each with hit TV shows, and each having just finished books; Carrie’s book, as revealed by Lena during the conversation, is en route.

Local Portland comedian JoAnn Schinderle opened the evening with a hilarious set. Dunham called her “fucking hilarious” when she took the stage, and then proceeded to read two essays from her new book, which is currently enjoying the #1 position on the New York Times Indie Bestsellers List (no big deal).

After talking about her many physical ailments while on tour, asking the audience if we could see her underwear (adding “Not that I care, I just want to know”), Dunham boldly read her strange, brave, beautiful truth to the crowd of (mostly) strangers, eventually inviting Brownstein to join her on stage.

The two are close friends — texting each other frequently in the midst of Read the rest of this entry »

Bye, Felicia: An Interview with “Mean Girls” Star Daniel Franzese + Parody King Adrian Anchondo

Daniel Franzese Interview with Logan Lynn (2014)

(Originally Published on Queer Voices on 10/08/2014)

Yesterday actor/musician Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls, Bully, HBO’s Looking) and writer/director/actor Adrian Anchondo (of Beyonce spoof fame) released their genius new parody video, Please Go Home – a hysterical spin on Sam Smith‘s hit single from earlier this year, Stay With Me.

The video has been making the rounds in all corners of the internet since then, and it’s no wonder.  The parody is jam-packed full of comedic handsomeness, legitimate musical chops, and is a virtual who’s who of San Francisco queer life.

Also: DANIEL FRANZESE!!!!

(Sorry, I just had to get that out of my system.)

I caught up with Daniel and Adrian for Queer Voices just hours after the video release to chat about gay love, this collaboration, their upcoming projects and more.

Watch Please Go Home, then read our chat below:

Logan Lynn: Hey boys. Thanks for chatting with me today on release day for your new video collaboration. It’s hilarious. How did the idea for this parody come about? Read the rest of this entry »

WATCH: Logan Lynn’s New Video “We Will Overcome” Exclusively at Vortex Music Magazine (VIDEO)

Logan Lynn We Will Overcome Video Premiere on Vortex Music Mag (2014)

My new video premiered this morning on the Vortex Music Magazine site. It is an homage to my family and community, and is about surviving together in the face of grief and loss.

In light of the past few years of losing some of our own, it has been clear that our love — and their love for us — continues to hold my family together, long after they have gone.

Thank you to my uncle David for capturing tons of old family movies decades ago. It is such a special thing to have living images of my grandparents, of my beloved family (Pat, Scott, Steve, Debby, Colleen, Mildred, Loy, Teresa, Gene and others) to build this story around.

…and for those of you in my community who have ever felt oppressed by the world, I hope you are also enveloped by hope, and that love is winning in your life.
