Those parodies, along with his cutting political satire, have racked up worldwide acclaim and four Emmy nominations for Outstanding Short Form Comedy, Drama or Variety Series.
Rainbow's YouTube channel — where he regularly posts newscast-style political sketches along with his song spoofs — boasts some 736,000 subscribers.
His memoir Playing with Myself
has also garnered acclaim for its vivid depictions of his experiences as an LGBTQ+ youth.
