Thanks to Ms. Rona, we're all trapped at home with nothing to do. Even Netflix is getting boring! But never fear. While they're technically out of work, our favorite entertainers are still out here bravely making virtual content in a scary new world. Going to the club or the theater is out of the question right now (self isolate! Ariana Grande says so) but here's PAPER's ongoing guide to the latest livestreams — featuring comedians, actors, musicians and more.
Who? Body Hack is an international Zoom gathering for trans and nonbinary partygoers put together by Christian Cisneros, Oscar Diaz and Río Sofia. Broadcasting from NYC, New Orleans and Mexico City, this week's virtual soirée features a stacked lineup of performances and DJ sets by San Cha, Phlegm, Stefa*, Bruja Prieta, Archangel, Sad Boy, La Guapis, Softie, SanaSana, Heavy Pleasure, Miss Hot Girl Bijoux and Shawna Shawnte.
