Transgender funnyman opens up about laughing at life

By Sam Adams
Ian Harvie is living proof that comedy and catharsis go hand in hand. Billed as the world's first female-to-male transgender comic, Harvie routinely uses his experiences with discovering gender identity as the basis of his stand-up act. The Alibi caught up with Harvie in advance of Laughter Links Us Together, the Albuquerque Pride comedy show, which he'll be starring in on Saturday, June 9, alongside his friend Jason Dudey and Southwest FunnyFest founder Dana Goldberg.

Get Your Gay Geek On

Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

By Devin D. O'Leary
Out actor/comedian Tom Lenk (star of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” The Cabin in the Woods and Transformers) is the special guest at this year's 13th Annual Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. He'll be talking about his “dorkumentary” Nerdgasm, in which he travels to England to fulfill his lifelong dream of performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—while indulging nerdy British fantasies like following in the footsteps of Harry Potter. SWGLFF starts Friday, Oct. 9, at Guild Cinema with Peter Greenaway's lush Opening Night drama Eisenstein in Guanajuato. It runs through Oct. 18 with 26 LGBT-centric dramas, comedies, documentaries, romances and horror films from around the world plus six blocks of shorts. Nerdgasm will screen Saturday, Oct. 17, at 9:15pm.
