Every day during the month of June, we will be spotlighting our 2018 Logo30. The powerful series profiles ordinary and extraordinary people who show pride in unique and provocative ways. Visit the Logo30 homepageto learn more about the series.

For legendary comedian and actress Margaret Cho, social and political issues are no laughing matter—especially when it comes to sexuality and race. Her activism has been honored by GLAAD, the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, and LA Pride, who recognized her for leaving a lasting imprint on the LGBT community with a lifetime achievement award.

“I would love the queer community in 50 years—sooner than that—in the White House and all of the arenas in government where we need more representation,” Cho tells NewNowNext. “I definitely envision a queer president in our lifetime. It won’t take that long.”
