Catching Up With Sandra BernhardThe hysterical singer, actress, and comedian chats with us about her new album, gay marriage, sex education, the Rapture, and — what else? — Oprah Winfrey.

Out: It was just announced that you’re headlining San Francisco Pride this year.
Sandra Bernhard: I’m always happy to be in San Francisco — it’s one of my favorite cities.

It’s where you taped I Love Being Me, Don’t You?
Bernhard: That’s right. We taped at the Castro Theatre a few months ago. San Francisco is so beautiful. The air is so clean. It’s a great classic American city that I get the privilege of going out to once or twice a year, and whatever I get to do — whomever I get to rub elbows with — it’s always a fun time for me.

Yes!  I was hoping that, with the reoccurring favorite phrase of the past year, “budget cuts,” that our SF  pride committee wasn’t going to have to scrape the bottom of the pond to come up acts for this year. They went fishing and came up with our favorite lesbian actress, singer, and comedienne Sandra Bernhard.  I quote her daily , “As long as I have a face, you always have a set. Table for two!” Sandra is the bomb. I suggest arriving early to be able to get up close and personal with Ms. Bernhard.
