When: Sat., Feb. 4, 8 p.m. 2017
Launched in 2012 by Austin-based activist and burlesque performer Ginger Snaps as a revealing reaction to “the perils of having Rick Perry as our governor,” Legislate This! takes shape in a “triple shot of tease” that kicked off last Friday at ATX’s Spider House Ballroom and wraps up Saturday in the cozy confines of Jump-Start Theater. By “taking it off for a cause,” the provocative initiative has raised awareness of the plight of women’s reproductive rights in Texas — along with substantial contributions to Planned Parenthood chapters across the Lone Star State. Hosted by “fiercely feminist, gender-bending” glam bear queen Foxxy Blue Orchid, the 2017 edition brings together an “an epic array of ecdysiast entertainment” comprised of local mainstays CoCo Simone, Black Orchid, Giomara Balzalduar, Jasper St. James, Queen Anthuros and Lita Deadly along with special guests Chola Magnolia (Austin) and Teddy Bare (Chicago).
