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 »

All of you who follow me know that I am passionate about mental health — particularly around destigmatizing issues of trauma and addiction.
For the past 4.5 years I have been doing LGBTQ advocacy and communications work with Q Center in Portland, and I am pleased to announce that I have accepted a position as Communications Director for Trillium Family Services, Oregon’s largest provider of mental & behavioral healthcare for children and families. Click HERE for the full scoop.
My mental health advocacy journey continues, and I hope you will join me in supporting both of these amazing organizations as I embark on this new adventure with you all! Thanks to everyone who has been posting sweet things and flooding my inbox with messages since the announcement.
I love you, too!

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.

It’s been a couple of weeks now since my band boys and I headlined Stargayzer Festival in Austin alongside Austra, Big Freedia, Christeene, Double Duchess and tons of other amazing LGBTQ performers, and this week a ton of press started popping up about our magical time there.
This quote from Confessions of a Boy Toy makes me smile:
“The lineup was the ultimate list of who’s who in queer music today: JD SAMSON, CAZWELL, SSION, Mykki Blanco, Austra, CHRISTEENE, Big Dipper, The Crystal Ark, Logan Lynn, Xiu Xiu, BAATHHAUS, TR/ST, Hi Fashion, MikeQ, Big Freedia, Honey Soundsystem, Cakes Da Killa, Double Duchess, Yo Majesty and way more.”
We were interviewed by Unicorn Booty for Towleroad while we were in town, too…so stay tuned for more!
I miss you, Austin. You’re cute.
