Gay Agenda is a weekly column for Billboard Pride where we run down a few things before the weekend. Between new tracks, music videos and pop culture moments, we want our readers to be prepared for boozy brunch conversation.
1. Here's something to celebrate: Democrat Danica Roem unseated longtime Virginia legislator Bob Marshall in the state's House of Delegates, becoming the first openly trans person to be elected and serve in a state legislative body. Marshall is the author of the state's transphobic "bathroom bill" that failed to reach the House floor. Andrea Jenkins became the first openly trans black woman to be elected to public office in the U.S., and will be serving on the Minneapolis City Council.
2. RuPaul's Drag Race scream queen Sharon Needles has released a video for her sobering track "Andy Warhol Is Dead?" The clip sees several references to the King of Pop Art: Brillo boxes, Campbell soup cans and Warhol muse Candy Darling are all referenced.
