Farewell to Margot Villaseñor; Descansa en Paz la amiga del pueblo


Las Vegas lost a legend on July 19 with the passing of Marcos Antonio Garcia, known by most as Margot Villaseñor, la amiga del pueblo (friend of the people). Margot lost her two-week long battle with COVID-19 but won the hearts and friendship of many in the LGBTQIA+ community.

Garcia, born Feb. 25, 1970, was the consummate female impersonator and entertainer, using her skills as a performer and host, to raise funds for friends, family and anyone in need. She was the resident emcee and host at The Backdoor Lounge, a LGBTQIA+ bar/night club which caters primarily to the Hispanic and Latin community.

Visitation will be held Aug. 6 at 4:30 p.m. at Palm Eastern Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Ave. Funeral services will be held Aug. 7, 10 a.m., also at Palm. A committal service will follow at 11 a.m.
