Luscious is coming this August and Marga Gomez is hosting it with Grammy nominee MARY LAMBERT, Mx Justin Vivian Bond, Cris Williamson and more at LUSCIOUS Queer Music Festival August 22-24, 2014 at the beautiful Saratoga Springs Retreat Center, two and half hours north of San Francisco.

GLAAD award winning solo performer Marga Gomez will return to downtown’s legendary La MaMa Theatre with LOVEBIRDS, June 6th through June 15 2014, six shows only. In LOVEBIRDS Gomez portrays New York’s gay and straight romantically challenged: a hallucinating photographer, an old school butch, a sleepy professor, a wife thief and his daughter following their hearts through decades. The San Francisco Chronicle called LOVEBIRDS “a satiric feast of hilariously etched characters in an intricate web of love, longing and life"
LOVEBIRDS running time is 70 minutes. Tickets and info are available at
www.lamama.org or by calling the box office at 212.475.7710
LOVEBIRDS reached it's original goal TONIGHT in less than a week! YOU did that!!! But LOVEBIRD'S INDIEGOGO fundraising campaign goes till Jan 25th 2014 and lots of great PERKS remain to be grabbed. Let's take it HIGHER!!
Honestly I didn't ask for all the budget when I started this campaign but LOVEBIRDS will surely cost over $4000 and that is just me paying others and paying for set and promo. It would be great not to use my credt cards to fund the show.
Thank you all from my heart. This has been a great lesson for me - if you couldn't donate don't trip and if you might donate in the next 16 days know that it will be used to make LOVEBIRDS the best it can be.http://igg.me/at/margagomezlovebirds/x/269167
