Bay Area Comedian Gina Gold presents this special event for the opening of the San Francisco Bay Area Sex Worker Film & Arts Festival, an evening of sex worker storytelling-- rant, reverie, nostalgia and surprises in ‘Sex Worker Diaries’ Gina Gold's TMI Storytelling series was launched at La Pena in 2012. Described as 'Raw Stories, Real Spit,' TMI Storytelling (Too Much Information) TMI features a rotating cast of storytellers giving an unadulterated, often hardcore look at life.

Gina Gold is a long time humorist and movie maker with a dedicated fan base of sex workers (and more!) around the country. Her rare, down-to-earth humor smashes stereotypes as it entertains. Gina toured with the Sex Worker Art Show throughout the US. Her videos have screened internationally and can be seen on her YouTube channel ‘The Gina Gold Show.’ nspired by comedians like Carol Burnett and Lewis CK, Gina boldly pokes fun at her own idiosyncrasies as a Jewish African-American Bay Area native who is really from Queens. (Gina grew up in a New York neighborhood thinking ‘oy vey’ was something all black people said.) Gina Gold is also on tour in ‘You’re Funny But You Don’t Look Jewish,’ a touring stand up comedy show with some very funny African American, Indian, Italian American and Vietnamese Jewish comedians.

This evening’s storytelling cast also includes a Lusty Lady mini-reunion with Julia Query (Director of Live Nude Girls Unite!) and Simone de la Getto who also toured with the Sex Worker Art Show, now raising a teenage son and rocking the fitness world, plus Reverend Jana Drakka, Zen priest and harm reductionist with an experiential sex worker tale.

The Festival will also screen two of Gina's comedic shorts at that event based on her experienced as a lap dancer, Gina Gold's 'Lap Dance Blues' is one of the most classic sex worker made shorts of all time. Her recent 'Stripper Damage' was voted the best short of the 2013 Sex Worker Festival.
