We’re one week out from my next show already! Produced by the one and only Wanda Bones, this one benefits a cause near and dear to my heart.
SMASH THE PATRIARCHY! is our local Portland burlesque community’s response to the growing opposition to women’s health care rights. We stand together for a cause that we believe is essential to showing that women’s health care rights are human rights. In a world where men are the deciding vote on our bodies and our rights we say NO MORE! Together we are dedicating acts and our time to providing money to our local abortion fund, Network for Reproductive Options, for our team BURLESQUEPDX’s Bowl-A-Thon goal! Come to celebrate, rejoice, be angry, fight the system and help us make a stand for what we believe is right!
I apologize for being a major slacker in the posting department! I was unable to participate in Rare Vintage Burlesque‘s June show, Love and PRIDE!, due to having to go out of town. Wouldn’t you know it – it was our first sold-out show! And by all accounts, what a show it was. We turned it into a benefit for the families of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, and it was a grand success. I apologize again for not posting about this until now. Thank you so much to everyone who attended and all the beautiful performers who made this an unforgettable experience!
