Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , , ,



Brit queer actor/writer/performer …… and Pantomime Dame aficionado …. Matthew Baldwin talks about his ninth season starring in this quintessential English (queer) art form. Queerguru advised Baldwin that this would be the first time ever we had interviewed a Queen who was paid to be evil!  This Holiday Season at Londo’n’s Charing Cross Theatre Baldwin stars in SLEEPING BEAUTY TAKES A PRICK. In case you didn’t pick up on the hint this is an ‘adult-only panto !!!!

As well as his love of playing evil queens, the multi-talented and extremely successful Baldwin has one of those resumes that make for fascinating reading. We picked up him writing a monologue for Mark Gatiss’ QUEER season in London. Kings Head Theatre …… plus the time in a freezing cold London pub/theatre he stripped naked to play his part ….. and there is so much more

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , , , ,




When a young Tony Maretta left Meadville, Pennsylvania and turned up in Los Angeles in the early 1990’s he was looking for the golden age of Hollywood which had long passed. So rather than just focus on acting he managed to pursue his dream and became a film historian, writer, and presenter. He not only found his passion but he also soon found success. With a packed resume that included hosting CBS Home Video’s award-winning presentations of Lucille Ball’s renowned television series, The Lucy Show: he has done several commentaries for Warner Home Video, and has been an advisor for Turner Classic Movies. One of his latest projects has been co-authoring The Marble Faun of Grey Gardens about the infamous “Marble Faun” from the celebrated 1975 documentary, Grey Gardens. Queerguru caught up with him to indulge our curiosity about his take on all the acting greats he has crossed paths with.
