Epochalips’ Queer Señorita Monica Palacios talks about her beginnings as a Latina lesbian comic in the Mission District of San Francisco. Monica became famous for her one-liners: “Remember the TV show Lassie with June Lockhart? — I had her. Very sincere woman. She kept her apron on the whole time…Try my new queer Mexican food: Enchiladas Lesbinitas, Tostada Homosexualidad.”
“I felt extremely proud to have been selected as one of the 41 LGBTQ Latina/o 2014 Role Models by Honor41.org, an online national Latina/o LGBTQ non-profit organization that promotes positive images of our community, creates awareness about our issues and builds an online family/community.” – Monica Palacios
