What is Babbling On?

Babbling On is a flirty and frisky newsletter from writer and actress Hilton Dresden.

The title draws inspiration from one of global pop culture’s most seminal texts: the lyrics of Lady Gaga’s Chromatica showstopper “Babylon.”

Here I will be offering my input on whatever topics I’m currently babbling about to anyone who will listen: movies, music, TV, books, porn, X-tra Cheddar Goldfish…

Who the hell is Hilton Dresden?

I’m a pop culture writer and worked as an Associate Editor for Out Magazine for three years, where I created my hit web series “5 Things With Hilton Dresden.” Since then I’ve worked as a freelancer for PAPER, Them, and various other outlets, mostly covering the gayer side of humanity.

These days I’m living in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and attempting to write a screenplay—boy, if I had a nickel! I’m also pursuing illustration and acting—you can call me a Renaissance woman, or you can roll your eyes and flip me the bird! *Ursula voice* Life is full of tough choices, innit.

Stay up-to-date, babe
