Margaret Cho Talks Politics & Eating Lance Bass
Read the complete Margaret Cho interview at OUT.com.
What Margaret has to say:
On who she would eat if on an island with Lance Bass and Kathy Griffin:
I’m sure Lance would not survive. He’s so tender and delicious looking. I would eat most of him. Kathy is much smaller than me. I could put away a lot of Lance.
On her Dancing With the Stars rainbow flag dress:
That was weird. To me, it was very important to make a statement about the gay teen suicides. That show is so conservative, so it was hard to find a way to inject my own views and values. I decided to wear this rainbow pride flag. Yeah, we were probably voted off because we were talking about something a lot of people couldn’t handle. But I don’t care about a dance competition -- I care about helping a kid get through it.
Her position on celebs saying “my gays:”
I am gay. I agree with Penny Arcade because I would never say it like that. It’s not about “my gays,” because I’m gay. It’s like when you have straight celebrities at a gay political function, and they say, “Well, I’m not gay, but…” -- I’m always offended. Why do you have to separate yourself from the community? What is so threatening about being in the community? So, I think Penny Arcade meant someone else. She’s thinking of Lucy Liu.
