2 weeks 1 pair of pants

I’m overly excited about my new shoe horn, an amenity from the Ritz Carlton last month. Perhaps I wasn’t supposed to take it home. I sincerely thought the hotel provides these for us like soap. I always take the soaps. I know my career is healthy when I don’t have to buy soap all year. With a shoe horn I’m ballin like P-Diddy. BUT-what if this shoe horn wasn’t fresh and had been forced down a businessman’s wingtips prior to my arrival? Whatevs. I have 3 pairs of hight tops and this will save me minutes putting them on. MINUTES that I can devote to my servitude to the blogosphere. I signed on to some ‘blog everyday for a month campaign’, a big leap from my anemic quasi- weekly entries.

Still lots of catching up to do before I’m even put to the test of getting into issues outside of my navel. And I got lots of pictures to share. Beats reading. In these pictures, Continue reading

Imagine my Pride

Future Latina Lesbian Marga, at 17

I’m posting from the Ritz Carlton in Boston after a fancy gay time as one of the headliners at Boston Pride today. Perfect weather, a beautiful day for a Pride March… a day I like to walk up to the anti gay protestors and say “Beautiful weather God gave us for PRIDE!”

If this is your first time reading my blog you may not know that I have a show coming up in New York City June 18th through 21st.

This blog is brought to you by MARGA GOMEZ in LONG ISLAND ICED LATINA! It’s about my high school years in Long Island and other challenges to the Latina brain. How can you say no to this kid?

Buy Tickets here and  learn more about “Long Island Iced Latina” It’s a real big deal for me– Off-Broadway and all and I’m looking for all the support I can get. Tell your NYC peops.

Now here’s a few words and  pictures of a few of my escapades in — do they call it beantown?

Upon my arrival at the Ritz Carlton I was whisked away to Boston’s Spirit Magazine party at the Liberty Hotel. Imagine my pride when I walked out of the marble and gold lobby to find my Pride Boy Toy Wilfred Labiosa (sucha lesbian name) behind the wheel of a fabulous zipcar.. NO no Wilfred  are you sure  this ride isn’t ordered for Kathy Griffith?

Since the party was in a former jailhouse. I decided to read Wilfred his rights and I ordered him to call me Miss  Taylor Dane all night. 

I went easy on him. I’m usually harder on producers. But I hadn’t gotten paid yet.

Seriously I love this gay cuban and he does a lot of good for the community all year round.Plus an actual cop showed who was the gay liason to the mayor of Boston. Since gay marriage is legal here his job is done I’d think.

I usually don’t make nice with the fuzz. But this one had his eyebrows waxed. He carried moisturizer in his holster.  

 

These gentlemen below are known all over Boston as the ‘Hat Sisters’ They make big hats and wear them for every occasion and share a chiropracter. They told me they had made these hats an hour

before theparty. And for pride they were going to create bigger hats with feathers. I really wanted to know if they had sex with their hats on but it was my first night in town- too soon to be hitting on a pair of sisters.

I have great respects for a good host and we had one for Boston Pride. One of Boston’s most popular DJ’s Fast Freddy (pictured on left)  One of my dear friends from my New York days theater critic Tony Phillips (pictured on right) was in Boston. He missed my set because he was delayed at a cocktail party. As long as he had a excuse.

Nope I never met star attraction Miss Taylor Dane. I don’t get why she’s at all the Gay things. It’s not like she’s Judy Garland.

 But I am a fan of lesbian pop sensation Lori Michaels who was very cool in the dressing room and offered me some of her veggie platter several times. So I finally ate a baby carrot and started choking . Not enough for mouth to mouth. Don’t eat raw vegies around a really cool pop star. boobnatalieWe entertainers try to reach out to the youth. Sometimes they reach out to us. This photo is wrong. Very wrong. I wasn’t aware what they were doing because I was obviously looking away watching my idol Miss Taylor Dayne. For the record all of these lovely Boston women are over 21, barely, and can you blame them? I gave a magnificent show. (photo by Nataly)

I arrived in a zipcar but I left in a town car with a beautiful Latina redhead Miss Coco Lopez. Thanks, Wilfred and John, Jenn Cullen-Crawford from Spirit Magazine, my pals Constance and Kim and the lovely folks at Boston Pride.

Hola Blogitos,
     Todays blog is about my number one Puerto Rican Reggaetton Idol –  Ivy Queen!  I felt I should talk  Ivy after searching for female reggaetton artists to mix into the  preshow music that we will play next week gomezat the opening of my Off -Broadway comedy “Long Island Iced Latina.”  

Tell your friends in NYC  that some very cheap tickets $20 are available for an unforgettable LATINA night Off- Broadway.  Click aqui for more info and tickets http://www.teatrostagefest.org

Because women in this reggaetton  get no love or exposure from the guys who dominate it I could only find ONE genuine female reggaetton star IVY QUEEN -lesser artists Mala Rodriguez and Lisa M. were on the dull side. Ivy Queen seems like she could shoot you in a drive by. Her music (at least up till 2006) is unique and she’s got issues. She hasn’t produced too much new music in the last two years and  her look and sound  is transitioning from a Little Kim vibe to Mary J Blige in a telenovela. Regardless she’s the best we got. Ivy Queen  has been a little quiet for the last year because at 38 (according to wikipedia) she is working on getting her high school diploma (to send a good message to the youth.) Ivy_Queen-Diva_Platinum_Edition-FroShe got started in the music biz as a teenager, worked for years as the chick doing the hook for guys in reggaetton and recorded two solo albums. Ivy’s third album Diva, was released in 2003 and was a huge breakthrough. If you have never heard her before I’m thrilled to introduce you to her. She’s talented, Puerto Rican, fierce, with a deep commanding voice, long curley deadly nails, expensive boobs, and kind of looks like a drag queen in the best possible way. I’m not feeling her stuff after 2006 but I will buy her shit regardless. It irks me that she never got the recognition she deserved because she’s a woman and a Latina. There- I said it Rush Limbaugh!  I have posted here  five  videos I found on youtube that will give you an idea of her awesomeness.

Currently  I blog from my pied de terre (makes my cramped apt sound grand) in San Francisco. I feel like I want to do a million things today. First thing this morning I put on my lucky writing shirt. It was like automatic writing but with wardrobe.

Although the show has been written and presented to large houses in New Mexico, Miami, San Francisco and Bloomington Indiana- where Latinas are revered like unicorns I feel like playing with the script today, punching it up.
This show is being billed as an evening of comedy- Originally I wanted to make it something more dramatic. I’ll save that for the film version starring America Ferrara – This is all hypothetical.
I found the old blog I kept in 2006 when I was performing Los Big Names at the Puert Rican Traveling Theater. I may try to export it here.. It was a fun journey. Fortunately the fun journeys keep coming. If I can get anything substantial done today I am going to reward myself by going to a shop that sells these 20 pound folding bicycles called Stridas. I saw a business guy on one yesterday, on his cell phone- and am obsessed.
