I’ve officially made “Glamorous” my guilty pleasure binge. I’ve been following Miss Benny since her start on YouTube in the early 2010s and I’m elated to see her finally get her flowers as the lead in the popular Netflix series, opposite Kim Cattrall. Between her EP “Swelter” and “Glamorous,” she’s firing on all cylinders. But the journey wasn’t simple. Check out her recent essay in Time about her transition and journey to “Glamorous.” I’m Steven Vargas, your L.A. Goes Out host, and here are the top events for this coming weekend recommended by the crew. 

Christopher Hartmann: Nightswimming

Blum & Poe in Mid-City presents Christopher Hartmann’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, Nightswimming. Hartmann’s hyper-realistic paintings portray intimate and detached moments from the bedroom. The series begins with ambiguous portraits of tousled sheets, signifying a disturbance, and starts to introduce bodies into the frame with a leg and foot. Hartmann’s paintings are dreamlike and mesmerizing. The exhibition opens Saturday alongside Acaye Kerunen: A NI EE (I AM HERE) and Matt Saunders: The Distances, with an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m.
