GuerrillaReads No. 102: Marga Gomez

So there we were one Sunday in March, standing on the corner of Sunset and Sanborn in Silver Lake, shooting guerrilla readings by some amazing LA area writers as part of the first-ever Lambda LitFest. We had everything from seriously sexy poetry, to a preview of a memoir we can’t wait to read, to the live reading of a Wikipedia entry. Then who should wander into our frame  but Marga Gomez herself, the one and only.

“Marga!” we shouted, then introduced ourselves. She seemed surprisingly unsurprised to be recognized by random strangers on the streets of LA. We asked, “Do you want to do a guerrilla reading?”

If you know, Marga, then you know we didn’t have to ask twice. She pulled out her phone and started reading an entry from the secret, undiscovered diary written Anaïs Nin about the day she visited Disneyland.
