Comedy for Equality IN / Michelle Shocked OUT

Comedy for Equality IN / Michelle Shocked OUT

After Michele Shocked‘s recent homophobic rant in San Francisco, HopMonk Tavern owner Dean Biersch cancelled her scheduled March 29th show. That’s good news for North Bay queer comedy lovers. Marga Gomez stepped up to co-headline with Johnny Steele and entire door proceeds go to my favorite local organization, Spectrum LGBT Center, serving the North Bay. (Read […]

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 […]

Gay Comedy Beginnings in SF

Gay Comedy Beginnings in SF

Founded in 1982, The Valencia Rose Cabaret was an ambitious project that housed the world’s first gay comedy club, a queer activist meeting center, a vegetarian eatery and more into a two-story Spanish style building with 3D camel sculptures jutting out of its walls.

Marga & the Battle Axe Do the Taco Taste Test

Marga & the Battle Axe Do the Taco Taste Test

A lot of people I know have never tried eating at a Taco Truck. It makes me wonder, do they question the quality? Do they hate to eat standing up? Is the term ‘Roach Coach’ lurking in the recesses of their mind? Where have they been? Street food is all the rage.  Hellooooo, don’t they […]

Black Swan vs. Burlesque

Black Swan vs. Burlesque

I’m all caught up on my show biz chick flicks having seen Burlesque two weeks ago and yesterday’s matinee of Black Swan. I took my girlfriend so I could grab her arm during the scary gross parts. I would turn towards her, in the dark theater, following the arc of her horrified reactions and gage […]

Stella and Ina Mae – Ringside Seats Forever

Stella and Ina Mae – Ringside Seats Forever

The first time I met them was about 1982 or 1983. Who remembers – it was the 80’s, I was stoned back then. I was at the Valencia Rose in San Francisco on Gay Comedy night doing a bit about trying to pick up Mormon lesbians in Utah only to end up with Marie Osmond. […]
