Friday, June 26th: LUCKY 7!


No? Then you’re not going to enough National Queer Arts Festival shows and Frameline flicks this month! Srsly, get out there! June only happens once a year! (And I hear there will be some marches and parades soon, too…)

Or maybe you’ve just been sitting around, glued to your computer screen, WAITING day and night to find out what your favorite queer arts show, the Queer Open Mic, is gonna do for June, because it HAS to be over-the-top phenomenal in June, because that’s how June ALWAYS is. And we’ve been making you wait, haven’t we? Admit it. You liked it, didn’t you.

Let’s wait a little more.

Okay, okay! Quit swinging that double-ended dildo at us, we’ll tell you! Queer Open Mic is next Friday, June 26th featuring the HBO-rocking, lady-loving, Berkeley-slam-team-coaching, Lucky 7 — bad-ass goddess of ALL that will bite your face from a microphone!


About Lucky 7
Lucky 7 has been rockin the mics throughout the Bay and the nation for the last 10 years. You may have seen her on HBO”s Real Sex 24 or 26 performing her classic Cucumber poem. Lucky 7 has been on just about every Bay Area Slam team. She currently holds the title of Berkeley Grand Slam Champion as well as coach of the slam team. She is also host once a month the Berkeley Slam. She Dj’s at the San Francisco slam. She is a lover of the stage, and one of the most underrated queer artists. If you have never seen her perform… you are in for a treat!

No lie, this is gonna be incredible. I know because I’ve been adoring this performer since I moved to the Bay Area years ago, tried my hand at the Berkeley slam, and was immediately humbled by the rockstar who went before me. (Hi. Remember me? You made my score lower. It’s alright though. No hard feelings. I’m over it. Really. Kind of.)

But, as you might guess, QOM isn’t the only thing happening the Friday night before the Pride Parade, so here’s whatcha need to do: At 3pm, go to Dolores Park for the Trans March gathering and performances. Bring cookies. When they start to march at 7, put on the best butt-shaking flirt you can muster and lead the cutest marchers on a detour over to Modern Times Bookstore, where you’ll catch the last free spots on the signup list. Got it?

And later? The clubs. Bring bright colors.

See ya Friday!
