Margaret Cho will perform a benefit show at D.C.’s Lisner Auditorium on July 13.

Comedian Margaret Cho, known for her biting humor and social commentary on gender, sexuality, and race-related issues, will perform a benefit show at D.C.’s Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University on Thursday, July 13.

Proceeds for the benefit will be for the university’s graduate program in LGBT Health Policy & Practice, according to a statement released by the program, which says tickets were scheduled to go on sale Wednesday, May 10 at the Lisner box office.

The statement says that George Washington University in 2013 established the LGBT Health & Policy Practice Certificate Program, which offers “in-depth training leading to competencies for those who seek to better serve and advocate for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community.”

It says proceeds from the performance will support program activities, curriculum development, and student scholarships.
