The San Francisco Bay Times has a great rundown of Margaret Cho's "Cho Dependent" concert film that was screened at the prestigious Frameline film fest on June 19.
Cho received the Frameline Award this year for her many contributions to LGBT film, including her appearances in such gay films as "Bam Bam and Celeste," "Rick and Steve, the Happiest Gay Couple in All the World" as well as "Cho Dependent."
Cho was not able to get to San Francisco to accept the award because she is in Atlanta filming the hit Lifetime TV series, "Drop Dead Diva".
As you may remember, "Cho Dependent" was filmed right here in Atlanta when she performed at The Tabernacle in December The film includes Cho singing the song "Best Friend Forever, Dick" with the full Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus backing her and, of course, some fantastic and hilarious commentary on gay people.
"She did a whole routine about Grindr, explaining, 'Grindr is like a GPS for cock, as if it was a challenge for gay men to find cock; now there’s an app for that.' She was sad there was no lesbian equivalent and 'the closest thing we have is animal rescue,'" reported the SF Bay Times.
The paper also states, "She exhorted gay men not to stay in a religion that does not support gay sexuality, illustrating, 'No matter how much you love the Lord, you will never love the Lord as much as you love cock. And no hymn will ever sound as good as balls slapping on your neck.'"
"Cho Dependent" is expected to be on TV in the fall, but which network is not yet known. Visit www.margaretcho.com for more information.
