My good friend and fellow photographer Margot Duane is organizing Equalipalooza this Wednesday, October 15th at Broadway Studios in San Francisco. Hosted by Margaret Cho, the event features comedy and creativity to raise funds for Marriage Equality USA to help defeat California Proposition 8, which if passed eliminates the right of same-sex couples to marry. Advance tickets are now on sale.
Margaret Cho will be joined by fellow comedians Johnny Steele, Heather Gold and Ali Mafi for an evening of comedy and creativity with a conscience. In addition, Assemblyman Mark Leno, District Attorney Kamala Harris, City Attorney Dennis Herrera, Deputy City Attorney Therese Stewart and her wife, Carole Scagnetti, will be acknowledged for their contributions to the marriage equality movement, Janice Mirikitani, San Francisco’s Poet Laureate, will read her poetry and Margot Duane, the producer of Equalipalooza, will exhibit her photographs of the same-sex wedding movement.
