Thursday I decided to hit the San Francisco streets. I grabbed my jacket and fled to see what I could find. I was happy to stumble along the ever funny and charming Ian Harvie from Amazon Prime series Transparent. He was performing at SFOASIS for one night only with Sarah Hyland as the opening act.
Ian is going on a comedic stand-up tour throwing jokes around about everything including his transition from female to male. Born in Maine, Harvie now resides in Los Angeles and is killing it out there, popping up in several different awareness projects including #WEJUSTNEEDTOPEE, an awareness raising campaign that identifies the unique challenges faced by queer and trans people in public bathrooms. Ian is candid about his personal life from sex, body issues, displaced nipples and what it’s like coming out to his parent and grandmother during his stand up routines.
I was eager to snag an interview with Ian about his tour, but he was too busy being his usual charming self giving a ride to an audience member who had their bicycle stolen while they were watching the show.
