DIRTY COMPUTER. Janelle Monáe’s stunning “emotion picture.”
NATALIA VESELNITSKAYA. Russian lawyer in infamous Trump Tower meeting much more connected to Kremlin than previously reported: “I am a lawyer, and I am an informant,” she said. “Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian prosecutor general.”

Trump lawyer loaned taxi mogul $26 million before election: ‘Semyon “Sam” Shtayner, a longtime business associate of Michael Cohen’s father-in-law, created Nevada-based Cannaboss LLC the day before the 2016 election.

THE NEW YORK TIME. On its history of covering gay issues: “The New York Times had a spotty record of covering the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s — and gay culture in general. Times staffers reflect on the paper’s past, and what we can learn from it today.”
CONTINENTAL BATHS. How it became the world’s most influential gay club: “Shortly after his stakeout of the Everard, Ostrow, an opera singer by profession, opened the Continental Bathhouse.

Over the next eight years, it became a cultural hub for music, clubbing and queer culture, providing gay men with a safe space unlike anything that had been seen before.”
