Popular lesbian comic Poppy Champlin talks to SDGLN about her life and "Queer Queens of Qomedy"

Poppy Champlin is a comedian. She is also a lesbian. Although when I spoke to her, she said she wasn’t sure which one of those statements was most true.

What she is sure about however, is her self-inflicted, overloaded schedule.

She etched some time out of her calendar to talk to SDGLN, and we jumped at the chance to get to know this famous lady before she comes to San Diego with her jocular crew of lesbian comediennes.

Champlin is bringing her Queer Queens of Qomedy Tour to town on September 13 at the MG Space in North Park for a night of laughs fueled by estrogen.

As Kim Davis was paraded in front of a crowd by Mike Huckabee shortly after her release from jail, a famous fight song played in the background, but the writer of that song, according to TMZ , is ready to sue.

This man identifies as 'Graysexual.' Here's what that means.
