Margaret Cho, the stand-up comedian and actress, will perform at a benefit show for the George Washington University’s LGBT Health Policy & Practice Program.
Ms. Cho’s biting humor, laced with social commentary on gender, sexuality and race, catapulted her into stardom as a stand-up comedian in the 1990s and sold out concert tours like “I’m the One That I Want” and “Notorious C.H.O.” She has also appeared on television and in movies and has released numerous popular books and concert videos.
Thursday, July 13, 2017; 7 p.m.

In 2013, the George Washington University established the LGBT Health Policy & Practice Certificate Program. The yearlong graduate-level program in LGBT health offers in-depth training leading to competencies for those who seek to better serve and advocate for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Proceeds from the performance will support program activities, curriculum development and student scholarships.
