margaret_cho-ny-times.jpgIt may be a coincidence, or was it planned?  Tucson’s Gay pride parade is on October 9th and Pride in the Desert is on October 10th at Reid Park.

Margaret Cho is appearing at the Rialto on October 9th!  (Get your tickets now online or at the Rialto box office).

So, will she stop by gay pride?  Can we convince her to stop by gay pride?  Should we write letters begging?  Should we send a fruit basket?
