Downtown divas

With two of the ladies heading uptown this week, we revisit our list of ten local women every gay man should be obsessed with.

Amber Martin, woman of a thousand faces
Why you should be obsessed: A chameleonic performer with a mind-blowing voice, Amber Martin dissolves completely into original characters (and a spot-on Reba McEntire) for her ongoing Amber Alert! series. Seemingly without vanity, she spends much of her show hiding her pretty face behind garish makeup and wigs, and performs all of her costume changes onstage. Martin is also happy to share the spotlight: Her shows always feature a cavalcade of guests—which often includes her mom (via Skype), as well as many of the other women on this list.—EL
