Walter Cole, known as the iconic drag queen who performed for decades as Darcelle XV, has died at 92. Cole died of natural causes in Portland, Oregon, on Thursday. Cole was crowned the world’s oldest working drag performer in 2016 by the Guinness Book of World Records. Darcelle was known for hosting the longest-running drag show on the U.S. West Coast.

Gwyneth Paltrow has testified about a 2016 ski collision at a Utah ski resort where a man is suing her, saying he's since suffered from broken ribs and brain damage. Paltrow says Friday that the 76-year-old Utah man is the culprit for the collision at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, and her legal team has raised questions about the man's motivations to bring a suit that could exploit her fame. After a judge threw out an earlier $3.1 million dollar lawsuit, the man is now seeking at least $300,000. In a counterclaim, Paltrow is seeking a symbolic $1 and attorney fees.

The agency ceremoniously unveiled the “Art of the Skateboard" stamps at a Phoenix skate park, featuring designs from Indigenous artists. The stamps underscore the prevalence of skateboarding, especially in Indian Country where the demand for skate parks is growing.
