‘CLOCK’ Premiers March 7 in Phoenix!

‘CLOCK’ Premiers March 7 in Phoenix!

Finally my play Clock, featuring seven strong Latina characters, will have its world premiere March 7-16, 2014 in Phoenix. Way back in 1996 I was selected as a playwriting fellow from the Latino Theater Initiative at the Mark Taper Forum of Los Angeles. It was a huge honor to be acknowledged by this prestigious LA […]

2013 Highlights – Including Twerking!

2013 Highlights – Including Twerking!

2013 is over and done with–good lord it was challenging but there were also some highlights. I shook the hand of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor–jealous? I attended an event where actress Eva Longoria interviewed Sotomayor about her new book My Beloved World. At the end of this amazing meeting of two powerful Latinas, Sonia […]

Lesbian Shape Shifter

Lesbian Shape Shifter

I’m not going to lie to you—I just bought a pair of workout shorts that promoted “tummy control”. Cuz if I can wear shorts that have a “power mesh insert” that will help me discover the figure I never knew I had—I’m buying them. I’m buying seven. And besides, if you can shove your power […]

Mistresses and Dynasty: Trashy TV Joy

Mistresses and Dynasty: Trashy TV Joy

I have a confession: I’m addicted to the new ABC show Mistresses. It makes my uvula tremble. But the plot lines are ridiculous. I sit there and say, “God this is so stupid–turn it up!” There has already been a lesbian sex shower scene–two women sudsing up a yak–that’s hot! Alyssa Milano leads this series […]

Gender Fluid on the Rocks

Gender Fluid on the Rocks

Recently I informed a friend that I was looking girly and she replied: “What does that mean? You have flowers in your jockstrap?” How dare her! I wear boxers. It’s true–I’m masculine and feminine. I poke and I like to get poked. When I was a young lass of five with my short pixie haircut, […]

Every Day is a Sunny Day

Every Day is a Sunny Day

As I stand and announce, “I have to go,” photographer Sunny Bak, my neighbor and adorable friend, replies in a nice dominatrix voice, “Nobody leaves. We have to watch one more episode.” She’s right. We are shamelessly addicted to the gripping TV show Homeland. We think Claire Danes is a nutcase–and that’s why we’re obsessed […]

I Miss My Chance

I Miss My Chance

I miss my dog Chance—big time. She was my love. She came to me through my sister Marty whose dog had puppies. My partner at the time, and I, wanted a girl so we had no choice but to take the runt of the litter. My sister thought Chance was born dead, so she tenderly […]

Otra Vez!

Otra Vez!

My fellow Homies, we came out in droves and re-elected Obama. Let’s not stop here. We have the power to change our lives for the better, for our children, for our students, for our ex-girlfriends. We are many in numbers. Let’s continue to go forth, kick ass and demand justice and equality for all. We […]

Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos

Experienced Dia de los Muertos in Boyle Heights the other night. I will confess right here and now, this was my first time. Don’t judge. Me and my homegirl Sunny Bak, walked the long ass stretch of First Street from State near where we parked, to Anderson, where the oldest Los Angeles celebration of Day […]

Quinceañera x 2

Quinceañera x 2

When I turned 50 in 2009, it really was no big deal. All my parts still worked and I wasn’t in need of stool softeners.  Ok—maybe half a tab.  But I looked cool when I danced…that’s if you closed one eye and squinted. So it’s now 2012 and I must say, this is a big […]
