see me next novSorry everyone, I’ve been really bad at letting you all know about upcoming shows. Been super busy, but, if you are free tomorrow and live in the SF Bay area, you can come see me at SHIPWRECK! Erotic Fan Fiction Competition, where every month I read porn out loud to a lovely sexy audience. NOVEMBER 2nd 7PM at the Booksmith bookstore in the Haight. Get your tickets HERE, this month’s book is The Stepford Wives.

Then on Saturday, I am going to be defending my title of reigning Muni Haiku CHAMPION! I defeated the resilient Ronn Vigh, then I defeated the all-powerful and up to that point undefeated Irene Tu,(that one really surprised me) this Muni Diaries show I will go head to head with Alexandria Love. There will also be storytelling about Muni, with some great storytellers, but enough about them, come watch me battle it out with Alexandria Love. I love her though, she’s the best. Get your tickets HERE, they go pretty fast so buy em up. NOVEMBER 4th 7PM at The Elbow Room! For more info clickittyclick here

I have other shows and some good news coming up, but I will save that for later, stay tuned.

HUGS TO ALL OF YOU !!!

¿Donde Esta Mi Gente? at LitCrawl!

¡Bad Immigrants!

Our last DondeEstaMiGente show at LitCrawl was FANTASTIC!!! Just wanted to share one of the group shots we took before the show. The photo is by Fabian Echevarria, of FOTOHOTO! (he’s so dreamy!) The show was at The Laundry, beautiful venue in the Mission. We were part of the third leg of LitCrawl, and sponsored by KQED! I am so happy with how the show went, as soon as I get the rest of the photos in I will show them to you guys. Till then, enjoy!

Pictured are Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Amanda Muñiz, Camilo Villa, Faluda Islam, and myself!

Photos from the Preview Performance of “Love in the Time of Piñatas”

Check out these photos from the preview performance of my solo show!

Hey everyone!

I’ve been super busy, with shows, and my day job, and rehearsals, so I haven’t been able to post much here, which sucks, cause I like posting on here, but anyway. The preview performance of my solo show went really well. It sold out very quickly. Then the theatre decided to add some chairs and open up a bunch of tickets, so I made an announcement that there were only a few tickets left. The extra seats we added sold out in like an hour. I was very grateful and touched that so many folks wanted to come see the show. The night of the show I was very nervous but had a ton of fun on stage. I’m very grateful to all the folks that helped me make the show happen. From the great folks at The San Francisco Arts Commission with their generous support from the Individual Theatre Artist Grant. Super thanks to Evren Odcikin my director. Super thanks to  Ericka Sokolower-Shain our stage manager, Yo Ann Martinez, my project manager,  Carrie Gocker, my incredible make up artist,  Mark McBeth, who did my promo shots, Tirumari Jothi, who designed my postcard, and Wonder Dave, who helped every step of the ay, and Fabian Echevarria for taking the pictures. 1000 thanks to the folks at Brava, Stacy and Sarah Guerra, and BiancaEstella de la Rocha, and Kolmel W Love and Kathy Anderson. Thank you for Matt Beld for lending me his ball gag, and thank you to Riss Rosado for lending me the most epic bat ever. And a very very big thank you to Kevin Seaman. Very big thank you to Pam and everyone at the Queer Cultural Center. And if I missed anyone, just throw stuff at me. Hope to see everyone at the show show. I might do it in October. Stay tuned for more info. Also, thank you to Ricardo Alvarez and Ashton Di Vito for being willing to be my shirtless donut boys.

#Go See Brouhaha!

My Recommendations for the National Queer Arts Festival!

People always ask me, Baruch what should I go see at the legendary National Queer Arts Festival? I usually say, MY SHOW, MY SHOW ONLY!! haha but no, there are a ton of amazing shows happening during the festival, you should try to see all of them! We are so lucky, so lucky to live somewhere that hosts such an important event like this, it’s amazing orgs like the Queer Cultural Center and all of their hard work that help keep the bay area queer spirit alive! If you cannot make it to all the show I’m going to be posting about my recommendations throughout the month. I’m only picking shows of people I know personally well, or shows I know will rock, if I don’t pick your show don’t get mad at me, it just means I don’t know your work super well, or you.

I HIGHLY recommend going to Brouhaha! This show is Trans People of Color comedy festival and will be amazing.  Click on the link HERE for more info and to get your tickets!
