The mission of Punching UP! is to showcase stories that dismantle systemic oppression through the individual human experience.

Frankly Burlesque deeply values the voices of marginalized folks and recognizes the systemic oppression that exists in our community. The cast of Punching UP! was selected through a priority application process, giving preference to performers who identify as members of under-represented groups. Applications were open to performers across the country; participating acts are diverse with a wide variety of performance styles.

This process was implemented because personal stories are the key to creating empathy. We will not always agree with each other, but we can and MUST communicate in order to function as a community on all levels – neighborhood to global.

Be prepared to be awed, inspired, to get angry, to gain understanding, and to take action.

Hosted by the Demon Queen of Sleaze, DisCharge (Bristol, UK), starring the Grand Beaver of Burlesque, Canadian Legend, Judith Stein (Nelson, BC) and featuring Lillian Bustle (NJ) and Sgt Die Wies (SF, CA).

Our dear friends from the ACLU will be present both nights, making sure you are fully informed and prepared for midterm elections the following Tuesday.
