Voguing Santa Claus Will Give You Christmas Life

It may have been a year ago, but at Instinct we are still LIVING for the video of voguing Santa Claus. The video was first uploaded on Facebook last year by Maji Claire and was shared almost 6,000 times and instantly became a holiday favorite.

The 20 second video shows a fierce Saint Nick voguing the house down hitting all the spots as he brings the slay instead of the sleigh. Can't wait to see if the ghost of Christmas Present will bring us a voguing Santa and his death-dropping reindeer.

Get yourself some Christmas cheer from the Haus of Claus!

 

This Bearded Daddy and His Dog Are Spreading Holiday Cheer

You know that Christmas movie you HAVE to watch in order for it to feel like the holidays? Mine are Love Actually, The Family Stone, Home Alone (1 & 2), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the animated classic)—the list goes on and on! There’s nothing like curling up under a blanket or having these on in the background while you decorate for your queer Christmas.

Someone who I know shares this sentiment is Cliff who I recently came across on Instagram. Cliff posts cosplay photos depicting different movies with his partner in crime Roxie—did I mention Roxie is Cliff’s dog? A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to be exact—a cute furry friend that will make your heart grow three sizes not just during the holidays but all year around.

Cliff is a handsome bearded redhead that has paid homage to easily over 100 films with his adorable photo shoots. Just look these holiday shots of the #gayginger and his #puppyofinstagram that will get in the holiday spirit!

 

I said, "next," dammit, this is not the DMV. #badsanta #roxierockstar #asrequested by @cavaliersteffi

I mean—Come ON! You can’t resist looking at Roxie’s puppy dog eyes and not want to keep scrolling for more cuteness—and Cliff’s pretty easy on the eyes himself! If you’re as big a movie nut these two will definitely brighten up your day!

In case you’re not convinced—here are some of my favorites from @CliffandRoxie.

 

Roxie loves her new groomer Edward. Wanna play paper, rock, scissors again? #edwardscissorhands #timburton #roxierockstar

I could go on—but I’ll let you check it out for yourself! Oh—and they take requests! So send Cliff some of your favorite flix and maybe you will see Roxie step into the role of a lifetime! Do I hear Miracle on 34th StreetMean Girls? Sister Act? The GraduateHocus Pocus? Bonnie and Clyde? Chicago? Annie Hall? Okay--I'll stop now.

I can’t wait to see what this cinefile and his four-legged best friend come up with next!

Christmas Beards Will Get You Into the Holiday Spirit

Just in time for the holidays—Christmas beards are spreading some holiday cheer—yes, you heard right. Christmas BEARDS! ‘Tis the season to be scruffy!

Instead of throwing those ugly sweater parties, now you’ll be able to decorate that facial hair that you grew out during No Shave November and make a statement with these beardaments this holiday season. Remember the 12 Beards of Christmas? Well now here's a chance for you to have your own! You’ll be ready to deck those halls with those balls hanging from your face.

Beardaments sells a set of 12 festive beard ornaments that immediately turns your beard into a Christmas miracle! Each one has a clip that attaches and joyfully dangles from your beard. Perfect stocking stuffer for that furry man in your life! Or maybe for that white elephant gift exchange you still haven’t planned for!

Will this catch on? Will it be like the trend of dying beards bright colors?

It doesn’t matter! We love BEARDS and we want to see more of them! What a great way to celebrate the holidays! Woof!

 

Christmas Comes Early with Sia's New Album

After her fierce album This is Acting from 2016, Sia has taken over the charts becoming the voice behind the bows and wigs that keeps us yearning for more. Sia has undoubtedly become an LGBT icon, penning anthems like Alive, Chandelier, and The Greatest which have reverberated in gay clubs and bars around the world.

But like every great song diva, Sia is ready to take on the ultimate challenge as a singer and put out her very own Christmas album.

Sia announced today that she will be releasing her album Everyday is Christmas, with original holiday songs which include songs like “Santa’s Coming for Us”, “Ho Ho Ho”, and “Puppies are Forever”. Finally, a new, fabulous Christmas album to go along with our egg nog and ugly Christmas sweaters. Ummm…can it be Christmas already?

Can't wait to stuff his stocking? Don't worry--Everyday is Christmas will be out November 17th, but you can pre-order starting October 30th

Here’s a list of tracks we can expect…will one of these be the new Santa Baby, Blue Christmas, or All I Want For Christmas Is You?
