So many queer (events), so little time

GEAR UP FOR THE QUEER UP Too too too much is going on this week!

Geeeez, cut a sister some slack. Then next week, there's more aGLIFF, the Gay Wedding Expo, HRC's Dinah!, the Trevor Tour, and two beloved Austin expats, Jenn Garrison and Sharon Bridgforth, make their ways back into town for separate events. Phew! On a more fleet-footed note, we recently interviewed Margaret Cho for next week's Arts section, for her upcoming Paramount show, and will be posting pieces of all that on the Gay Place Blog really soon. Sadly, the interview was conducted before we found out that she's going to be on freakin' Dancing With the Stars(!!!) with Bristol Palin. Holy ice floes! Here's a few words from La Cho's website about her exciting upcoming TV gig: "I'm so excited to be doing Dancing With the Stars, but I've got a lot to learn. I've got some mean stripper moves and I can pick up a dollar with my butt, however the Viennese Waltz is all new for me!" (See the Gay Place Blog,
