S.R. Sharp, Lucia, Margaret Cho, and Durk Dehner
Through Margaret Cho’s iconic work in comedy, fashion, music, and activism, she’s developed deep, lasting friendships with – well – a bunch of famous people, while never losing her desire to search for and support the next big thing. On THE MARGARET CHO, join her for a series of intimate interviews: the first part a chat with a celebrity friend you already know (or thought you did!), and the second with an up-and-coming artist you might not know, but should.
Margaret chats with cofounder of Tom of Finland Foundation, Durk Dehner, and S.R. Sharp about why they love this iconic homoerotic art, How Durk discovered Tom and why it’s so important to keep Tom of Finland’s legacy alive.
