That time I got to be a Gay Luchador for a Day! VIVA LUCHA LIBRO!

So I got to be a Luchador for a Day, and it was FANTASTIC, or FLANTASTIC, I should say!!

If you haven’t heard of Radar Productions and live in San Francisoco, where the heck have you been and I feel sorry for you, they put on amazing, fun, rad AF literary shows and have helped keep the literary scene alive in San Francisco for years. They decided to team up with Fogliter Literary Journal to do this Luchador inspired literary contest called LUCHA LIBRO!

They had a massive submission process and I entered, then nov 1st they let me know that I was a finalist, YAAAAY. They asked me to come up with a luchador name, I wanted to name myself, Baruchador, because duh, but they said no, that it was too similar to my own name, and they wanted it kept secret that I was competing. All 5 finalists had to come up with a name. I came up with Rio de Vergas. Which means River of Dongs, or River of cocks, haha. HHAHAHAHAHAHAA. I think its funny.

So basically I just wore the outfit that I wore during my solo show, and added a luchador mask, and borrowed Wonder Dave’s Cape, I also wore these light up shoes I originally got for my solo show but they didn’t arrive on time, so I was like, why not, throw in a new lipstick I got from Sephora, and boom, Luchador. Here are some pictures from the super fun event. I didn’t win, but holy crap I had fun. And I was honorably mentioned. And I was featured in the write up for THE SF CHRONICLE!!! So grateful and glad I did it, we all got 100 bucks for being finalists and two really awesome goodie bags full of books and sex toys, made me love SF again. Yay!

I had so much fun. This has been a little gay dream of mine since I was a tiny kid in Mexico loving Santo, and Blue Demon, and then Cyndie Lauper, and then Chyna, and then that Steven Universe episode, TIGER MILLIONAIRE! and then GLOW, the show and the doc, and then always always Finn Balor‘s butt, I will always worship Finn Balor’s butt till the day I die, it is why I get up in the morning. The power in those little butt cheeks could power a city.

ALSO, holy shit holy shit the show got written up the SF Chronicle, and they used a picture of me for the main picture!! And they said some cool stuff about me, haha.
