‘Carol’ is Caliente!

Who needs a stripper on a pole when you can experience the most exquisite sexual build up between two people in the history of film with the new period drama Carol. Our girl Cate Blanchett does an outstanding job as 1950s socialite Carol Aird, a woman who is going through a bitter divorce as she […]

Lesbian Hilarity in Marga Gomez’ ‘Pound’

I’m super excited for the San Francisco October premiere of my eleventh solo comedy POUND at Brava Theater. It’s been a fantastic experience that began earlier this year in NYC. I was offered a commission to create and perform a new show for an edgy, sexually adventurous LGBT festival. I decided to develop a premise […]

My Top 5 Lesbian Halloween Costumes

I’ve always been a HUGE fan of Halloween. As a child I loved it even more than Christmas. At 6 years old I fought hard to get my parents to let me wear the ‘boys’ monster costume I coveted. So, what is it about lesbians (and all queers!) and Halloween? We love to dress up. […]

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

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.

My Etta James Story

My Etta James Story

When I was just starting out in comedy in the 80’s I was hitchhiking in San Francisco one night, yup – me and Aileen Wournos – the last lesbian hitchhikers on the planet.  I very luckily got a ride from Lupe De Leon the manager for Etta James, Kenny Rankin and Tania Maria. I made […]
