With the release of the latest two films this year from Marvel Studios, “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” — both of which rapidly entered the rarified billion-dollar-plus box-office club — it’s clear that superheroes don’t go out of style.

While it’s true that Icon Ebony-Fierce — a 1990s-obsessed, wildly artistic mother figure in the LGBT community who identifies with they/them pronouns —  has made a name for themselves as a member of the city’s ever-evolving drag and queer performance scene, the driving passion behind their work has been activism.

THE LULLABIES OF BROADWAY: Tony Award-winning stage and screen legend Patti LuPone, backed by Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus, will perform classic show tunes in “Don’t Monkey with Broadway,” 3 p.m. June 9 at Kimmel’s Verizon Hall, 300 S. Broad St. For more information or tickets, call 215-893-1999. 

Delightfully dark, funny and campy, crime drama “Claws” is back for a third season this summer. It follows the exploits of a group of women in Palmetto, Fla., who work at a nail salon — a front for laundering money for a pain clinic that is illegally selling painkillers.

Out singers who have made a splash on televised talent shows are among the headliners of this year’s Philly Pride.

Brian Justin Crum (“America’s Got Talent”), David Hernandez (“American Idol”) and Philly native Vincint (“The Four”) are preparing to have Pride spectators dancing at the main stage throughout the day.
