This collection of articles and essays documents over twenty years of prostitute radicalism from a leader of the sex workers' rights movement. Heady, political, and sexy, these autobiographical missives defend sex, queer rights and reproductive freedom and attack fundamentalist feminism, economic injustice and discrimination. Leigh's writings explore a historic cultural and artistic underground from an irreverent point of view, challenging conventions of sexuality, aesthetics, technology and prevailing social mores.***************************"Scarlot Harlot presents Whore College" Schedule1.

She is a firkeytoodlin' frisky feline galloping with uber kittitude. As seen on HBO, E! , IFC, Queer TV and other media outlets, she embodies the spirit and style of those days of decadence gone by. Suzanne won the SF Weekly Music Award in the New Genre/Beyond Category for her campy vaudevillian performances of her kinky cabaret ditties in 2003! At the 2nd Annual NY Burlesque festival, Kitten won a Golden Pastie Award for being the Biggest Tease!

We need to all come to this benefit for Heather McCallister!
Read on:

Please contact Lady Monster for more information at .

Fat-Bottom Mama’s Benefat
A benefit for the Founder and Artistic Director of Big Burlesque and The Original Fat-Bottom Revue, Heather MacAllister

December 20, 2005: San Francisco, Calif. —
On Saturday, January 14th at the Center For Sex and Culture (at 398 11th Street @ Harrison), a benefit will be held at 8pm to raise money for Heather MacAllister.
Battling ovarian cancer for over two years, this young Detroit fat and queer activist needs the support of her community at large.

She is also the founder of the Venus Group, a social and support network other fat artists and activists.

Performing under the name, RevaLucien, she brought her passions to San Francisco, and onto the burlesque stage. She created the world’s only touring plus-sized burlesque troupe (The Original Fat Bottom Revue).

Performers at the Benefat will include those in the Bay Area that have supported and performed with Heather in the past – including burlesque, dance, spoken word and song performances. On the list to date are: Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stevens, Carol Queen, Scarlot Harlot, Big Burlesque, Kitten on the Keys, Big Moves’ Phat Fly Girls – West Coast, Creamy Goodness, Jennifer Blowdryer, the Diamond Daggers, Kelly Keggers, Lori Selke, Marilyn Wann, and appearances by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. There will also be various donated items up for auction.

In 2005 Big Burlesque traveled the country-wide. A smash-hit East Coast tour, a Southwestern swing with Candye Kane (including knocking off the celebs socks at the infamous Brown Derby in LA), elegance-extraordinaire at Tease-O-Rama, and our flabulous production, `Hot Summer Nights` at Theater Rhino, PanTease II, and performances at the following events: Dyke March, NoLose Conference, NAAFA Conference, Exotic Erotic Ball and many other shows, including our usual frolicy fun at The Dark Room.

Big Burlesque has also had a great deal of amazing press from being featured in Leonard Nimoy`s photographic series, “Maximum Beauty”. This includes the following magazines in international circulation: Time, New Yorker, Bizarre, and Juxtapoz, and several newspapers. These photographs were also featured on the Style network in an interview special with Leonard Nimoy. AND, we hope you caught the KQED SPARK episode that featured Big Burlesque.

In the November 2005 issue of Bizarre Heather says, “Any time there is a fat person onstage as anything besides the butt of a joke, it’s political. Add physical movement, then dance, then sexuality and you have a revolutionary act.”

Meow Meow!
A brand new review of Pretty Princess Day!
Makes me feel good that it is still out there in the Universe!
Yippeee doodle!

Had fun playing at the Mariott last night.
They do not need any piano tonight so I am performing at Dirty Little Secret.
RJ is off so we now have Eddie Dane!
That will be great.
Doing Granny Sells My Panties on Ebay with him!

Kids shows tommorrow.... kinda early.... but should be gratifying.
Purchased 75 or more kazoos so the kids could play along!
I have to say I am liking X-mas music this year.
I can't say!

Thursday, December 01, 2005

Oh my god...
I am listening to the Darkness and having fun with my computer.
The first Darkness... I think they have a new album out.
Or do we call it CD now?
I guess that is a guilty secret that I am sharing with the world right now.
All my pals have restraining orders either against them or they are putting them on other folks.
So hard to get along with crazy people.
Do people just forget to take their meds?
Or are the meds not working?
Are my meds working?
Hard to say.
Sometimes I am paranoid.
REALLY paranoid.
It was raining so HARd today and I had ice cream in the rain with Rodney.
It was minty and I felt fresh in the buckets of rain.
We have a leak in the ceiling.
Joan was awesome and got right on the problem.
Cool for an 86 year old lady!
I am alwasy so fearful that the mean old church will kick me out for being a sinner asshole.
I am a sinner asshole but I am a nice sinner asshole who listens to the Darkness in secret....
I mean it was a secret.
I think I am going to listen to someone else now.....
SOPHIE TUCKER rhymes with fucker.
I have liquid poos from all of the stress.
It feels bad.

I have realized that I am difficult because I have a certain standard.
Things do not have to be so difficult.
I just want to work with people that have their poop together.
Is it that hard?
Having a show at 8PM and not having a set list yet at 8:05 is irritating and UNPROFESSIONAL.
Lying is also VERY unprofessional.
So funny how I become the butt of jokes due to someones inferiority complex about themselves and their sexuality. Why do these guys suck so bad?
And it is always MEN!
They really have huge egos and try to dominate me.
I have just gotten PISSED off lately and will not put up with it?
Why should I?
I hate it when men are not fair and pit other women against eachother.

I am so happy I am leaving.
I keep looking at all these places and the best is just AWAY.
I guess I can leave before the church kicks me out.
I have no husband.
No real skills or anything I do really.
I am just kinda a bog marshmellow moonpie with liquid poop who listens to the darkness.

Got to tinkle the ivories and fool around with Chave.... she is sweet.
Doing Goodship Lolipop strip

Sounds GREAT!

Had so much fun at the last Viva Variety.
There were fantastic performers on the bill!
Mathew Martin, Peggy Judy, Peggy L'eggs doing Ophelia, Will Franken is AMAZING, and so much more! I feel so good to be included in such a wonderful show that donates all of its money to charity.
I will misss performing there.
I played piano for Dr Elmo's new Prison Without Martha SOng and then we did his big hit
"Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer". Thanks to Velocity Circus for having me there as a guest. Dr Elmo is so super sweet. He gave me his blessing to do his song at a little X'Mas show I am doing at Madrone Lounge 12/24 with Uni and her Ukulele.

Then I was off to Trannyshack where the Savage song got a great response!
I love Trannyshack.
So fun to do 2 shows in a row where people are actually nice to me and appreciate me!
Yippppeeeee, about time.

Moving away is going to be hard but I have to do it for my sake!
I only have a teeny tiny bit of sanity left!

I am writing lotsa new songs including a sad ballady waltz about a loveless X'Mas for Jon Bennet Ramsey.

I was so happy I got to MC the Laughing Squid 1oth anniversary party at the Varnish Fine Art Gallery downtown 12/10. I was fortunate enough to MC amazing acts as well as play piano and sing. My wonderful pal Joshua Ellingsaon did the
artwork of the squid.
I made a squid necklace and also made squid pasties with golden squid sparklies for my boobies.
I was squealing with kittenish delight as the amazing Nik Phelps of Sprocket Ensemble played naughty 1920's standards with me.
WOW! Was that fun. We really jelled on such classics as "King Size Papa" and more!
Usually at those events people don't listen but a couple people mentioned they really enjoyed the songs!
Mr Lucky was fabulous as always and he even had the one and only J Raul Brody play with him.
I got to sit on MR Brody's lap (he was wearing cordouroy pants so it felt good). Mr Brody backed up Pee Wee Herman and Florence Henderson in the same week once.
Scott was so happy! What a sweetheart!
I also got to hang out with Freddie Price of Rube Wadell fame and his lovely gal Lily from
Yardogs Roadshow. They enjoyed my new song "Leather Daddy".
Nik and Nancy were dolls and gave me a ride all the way home!
Some photo links from the party:

Don't forget to come see me sing for the Lollies at Dirty Little Secret at the Plush Room 11/26
at the York Hotel! Many fun surprises abound!
My pal RJ is the host of the show!
I had such a busy week!
First I did exceprts from my upcoming one woman show Kitty Glitter for Fool's Fury
Theater Company Factory.
Then I did my gals the Lollies a favor a sang "You Bring Out The Savage In me" at Douglas Good's Cabaret Verdalet at DNA. The show had a becy of beauties including Jill Tracy as the MC, Veronica Klaus,
Rj Owens Magic, The World Famous Bob from NYC, and of course the Lollies.
The band was fantatsic!

Friday I got to hand out with a fabulous old friend.
So nice to catch up with her!

Saturday just made me fall to pieces.
I was in Paul Nathan's Dark Kabaret.
My ride never came so Miss Cat had to come and load her car.
She was not feeling well but she came to the show looking FABULOUS!
Ended up to be so much work because I played piano for myself and also had to play for others.
I was not counting on that so it put me in super stress mode.
Unfortunately my own work suffered because of it.
I did two new songs, "Vodka" and the "Hot Nut Swing" on ukulele.
Mt Tinkler loaned me his new tenor ovation uke. So much fun!
Singing with Eric McFaden is a dream come true.
Paul ended up thanking me profously so it was all worth it.
There is a reason I want to quit show biz but thanks makes it better

The less astuteviewer will think it's really just naked punk chicks dancing around, but asthe hilarious photo shoot in San Francisco proves, you can't easily classifyanything when it comes to the Suicide Girls.If you like hot, tattooed and pierced females (and the bad leather - Lordknows I do), you'll want to check this film out as soon as humanly possible.You'll come for the flesh, but you'll stay for the personalities. Rating:**** "The Victoria Theater:Located in the historic Mission District of San Francisco, the ornate andstately Victoria Theatre, seats 500. The theatre, built in 1908 as avaudeville house, is now a city landmark and the oldest operating theatre inSan Francisco.Originally called Brown's Opera House, it was operated as a vaudevilleshowcase by the ancestors of two California governors. The theatre drewcrowds who delighted in observing the grand performances of internationalstars who came to San Francisco. As cinema began to displace live on-stageentertainment, the character of the Victoria Theatre began to change. In the1930's, it became a motion picture house offering dishware door prizes toentice moviegoers. In the 1950's the Victoria Theatre was renamed El TeatroVictoria, showing Spanish-language films for the growing Latino community inthe area. In the 1960's, under the name New Follies, the theatre became aburlesque house and closed in 1976.Two years later, restored and refurbished, she was once again Victoria, andtoday she is the oldest operating theatre in San Francisco. In her longhistory she has presented Mae West, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Irwin, DonaldO'Conner, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Current Victoria presentations areeclectic, usually edgy, and include locally produced original plays,concerts, film festivals,musicals, and international performing companies.Contact Tease-O-Rama!For photos, interviews with performers or organizers, press credentials andanswers to all and sundry inquiries, contact: Alan Parowski

Oh dear,
How could I forget that I met Steve Jones of The Sex Pistols Wed night?
He was very kind! Look for the star fucker evidence on my website!
Thanks to the photographer who snapped the photo!
Speaking of which, the piano duo I am involved with was shot by famous
rock photographer Pat Johnson yesterday. Wow, so cool to work with such a professional
person! The first photo looked amazing... no complaints from my own insecure peanut gallery that lives inside my head.
I actually got to attend an event last night as a non performer.
It was super!
Got to see APE, thanks for getting me in Frank Novivki!
Saw the sassyDevilettes do their grrove thang! So much fun and high energy.
Missed the belly dancers unfortunately.
They looked really great!
The Rickshaw Stop is where it all happend and it was nice!
My fellow feline Miss MiMi Le Meaux was there from San Diego!
Can't wait to be in Paris with her in 4 weeks!
Monique, I miss her so much, is having a great show tonight of the creatures she makes from
bones and vintage clothing scraps.... BEAUTIFUL....I am gonna go!

Wednesday, June 29, 2005

Wow, thanks to Will the Thrill and Monica for showing me around Palm Springs!
And that nice man included me in his article about Baby Doe and Otto's cool event,
Tiki Oasis! I was so delighted to be there! My voice gave out in the dry desert air but, I just kept on going! I got to perform with ukulele master, Frank Novicki from APE! Thanks for everything Frank! He even wrote me a song...."You Bring Out The Savage In Me"! It's awesome and I intend to ad it to my kitty repitoire on uke and vocals..... suiper snappy and catchy! Look for more Daddy Frank and Kitten collaborations in the future!

Also, my new duo with Rodney Austin made its debut this weekend for PRIDE. We even got press at for visual Aids Sweet 16 Party. Wow, that was neat to debut at Yerba Beuna Center for the Arts. David as Lucien Stern was a dreamboat as the MC with MRS VEra. I fell in love with drag super star Gina La Davina and her pal Muffy Sincere! Go MUFFY!
She won!

Last night at danced at Club NV. I was so out of it in the 80's I couldn;t keep up with the band.
Thank goodness they added a lil Southern Rock and AC/DC... whew......
Tonight I am a roller skating cupcake girl named Cutie for my pal Gregangelo. I am excited I get to see many of my performer pals tonight! Hope I don;t break my arm on those skates!
I need my paws!

An actual post!
I am trying not to just use blogspot to promote shows I am in.
I have had a pretty nice weekend.
Did a bunch of shows ansd met some friendly Frank Sinatra loving people at
my substitute job last night.
They got me primed to watch "Pal Joey" today!
ZIP.... is a great song!

Had bad nightmares though.
I am getting really sick of the bad thoughts.
Really scary, mean husband killing me and attacking me.
When will all of this badness go away?
I am actually really scared for my well being.
Can't seem to shake the sadness and anger of the horrible betryal of it all.
All right in my FACE.
Not so nice.
I know I am being vague. Why be polite when the other party was NOT polite at all?
Ever wish you could turn back time and not have to think of all the sadness?
Then my Mom would still be alive and I would have ever married.
It was so greatI was ALLOWED to have a career.
I really appreciated that. That was the one great thing I came out of this whole thing.
Someone ALLOWED me to work my ass off. AWESOME!
Wish I could meet someone who would be nice to me and treat me well.
I think after awhile I deserve it!

Tonight should be a fun show with Rodney!
We have a new dup called the MUD FLAPPERS...... bad flapper girls soked in gin and more!

I am going to do a new version of Hot Nut Swing!
I do that song at the Rite Spot but not at Burlesque Shows.
Should be fun and sassy.
There are many different versions of the song from the 1930's.
Georgia White and Lil Harding Armstrong are my influences.

Only one month until PARIS! Can't wait to go.
If anyone knows of any great places I should visit, let me know!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:THE WORLD'S "TOP TEASERS" TO TAKE THE STAGE,IN CELEBRATION OF THE NATION'S LONGEST-RUNNINGBURLESQUE PAGEANT: MISS EXOTIC WORLD 2005"Burlesque is experiencing a revival, flowing from America's cultural centers, across the heartland, and slowly, around the world."-- ABC NewsHelendale, CA (May 16, 2005) -- Exotic World USA, home of the world's ONLY Burlesque Museum and Striptease Hall of Fame, is pleased to announce that on June 4, 2005, over 100 of the world's most talented, tantalizing teasers will join Exotic World proprietress Dixie Evans ("The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque") and fellow legends of the burlesque stage Tempest Storm, Tura Satana, Kitten Natividad, Satan's Angel, Yvette Paris, Liz Renay and reigning Miss Exotic World, Dirty Martini, for the museum's 15th Annual Miss Exotic World Pageant & Striptease Reunion.Hosted by the one & only El Vez, along with San Francisco's friskiest feline, Kitten on the Keys, Sideshow Superstar "The Amazing Blazing Tyler Fyre" (NYC) and comedian Blaine Capatch (LA), this year's show is a joint venture of Exotic World USA and Lucha VaVoom Productions, and will take place on the grounds of the Exotic World Burlesque Museum -- located just off historic Route 66 in Helendale, California.A risque American folk art that all but disappeared with the advent of television, burlesque has recently re-emerged as a major cultural phenomenon. Its boa-clad, rhinestone-studded revival is as evident in the explosion of burlesque-inspired nightclubs (40 Deuce, Tangerine, etc.), as it is in the "retro-glam" fashions of such mall-friendly retail giants as Victoria's Secret & Frederick's of Hollywood.Widely regarded as the "Miss America of Burlesque," Miss Exotic World is the most coveted title in the increasingly competitive, high- profile world of retro-flavored bump & grind. With acts that range from the elegant, ballet-inspired striptease made famous by superstars such as Sally Rand and Lili St. Cyr, to fire-eating, hula- hooping and even gravity-defying aerial stunts, the Miss Exotic World Pageant consistently draws the biggest names in burlesque past, present & future -- including diverse, top-flight performers representing all shapes, sizes, ages and backgrounds, from exhibitionist grandmothers to thirty-something PhDs and classically- trained modern dancers.In honor of the show's landmark anniversary (Note: In addition to celebrating the Pageant's 15th year, 2005 also marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Exotic Dancer's League, by Exotic World's founder, the late Jennie Lee), this year's show will include several new features, including a nighttime "title bout" (with top performers competing for the Miss Exotic World title & crown, beginning at dusk), and the debut of two new competitive categories ("Best Newcomer" and "Legend in the Making"); as well as a "Best Costume" contest; special tributes to recently deceased stars of the Burlesque stage, including Evelyn "The $50,000 Treasure Chest" West; a classic car, chopper & hot rod exhibition; and an all-day bazaar featuring vintage & pin-up vendors and between-set tunes, courtesy of celebrity DJs Senor Amor (LA) & Scott Ewalt (NYC).The 2005 Miss Exotic World Pageant will take place on Saturday, June 4 at 1PM (gates open at 12 noon) at 29053 Wild Road in Helendale, CA. Admission is $25/person (advance purchase through ONLY) and $30/day of show (venue only).Editors Note:Interviews, images and a full list of Miss Exotic World 2005 competitors and performers is available by request. Commercial photographers, television professionals, documentary filmmakers and print journalists must call in advance for reservations. For more information or to schedule interviews with Dixie Evans, exhibition participants, or to arrange tours of the museum, please email or call (917) 599-8178."...As 'burlesque mania' edges ever closer to a fever pitch, a trip to the Pageant is a true must in the dust." -- Style Monte Carlo, Winter '05###-------------------------ABRIDGED RELEASE & LIST OF SATURDAY'S PARTICIPANTS:As you may know, the one & only Miss Exotic World Pageant & Striptease Reunion is finallyupon us… in fact, it's this coming weekend, June 3-5!That's right, Exotic World USA, home of the ORIGINAL Burlesque Festival & Striptease Reunion, proudly presents the 15th Annual Miss Exotic World Pageant -- hosted by El Vez, with Kitten on the Keys (SF), Blaine Capatch (LA) & the Amazin' Blazin' Tyler Fyre (NYC)... and featuring an ALL-STAR CAST of the world's top teasers, taking it all off in the ultimate battle for STRIPTEASE SUPREMACY!But wait… there's more!Saturday's main event will also include a classic car, hotrod & chopper exhibition; vintage & pin-up vendors; raffles & giveaways, food & drink *and* Celebrity DJs Senor Amor & Scott Ewalt, spinningthe very finest "take-it-off" tunes all day long!So: what the hell are you waiting for?Get your tickets here: region=socal&query=schedule&venue=exoticworldorvisit for more details… and don't forget to SPREAD THE WORD!Team EWPS: Here's a peek at the earth-shattering ecdysiasts currently confirmed for Saturday's show:Adonna VichetAlotta BoutteAmber RayBambi the MermaidBella BerettaThe World Famous *BOB*Bunny LoveCharlotte La Belle AraigneeDelirium TremensDesire D'AmourDiamondback AnnieDolores De MuelaEsperanzaEva Von SlutEzili Belladonna StarThe Flying FoxHarvest MoonHot Pink FeathersIndigo BlueIsis StarrJami DeadlyJulie Atlas MuzKalani KoKonutsLady AceLili's Burlesque RevueLittle BrooklynLucy FurMimi LeMeauxPanty RaidPa-Ooh-LaPeekaboo PointePeek A Boo RevuePenny Starr, Jr.Scarlet SinclairSkin Tight Outta SightSparkly DevilSummer PeachesToots L'AmourTorchy TabooTrixie Little & The Evil, Tap-Dancing Hate MonkeyVenus DeMilleVienna LeRougeVivienne VaVoomMiss Von LividThe Wau Wau SistersZaraa Ra'naaWith special appearances by:Bambi Sr.Camille 2000CynthianaDaiquiri St JohnDixie EvansKitten NatividadKiva, "Queen of Fans"Liz RenayMarinkaRicci CortezSatan's AngelTempest StormTura SatanaYvette Paris... & other Vintage Stars of the Burlesque Stage!For more info, please visit

Show listing!The Empire Plush Room Presents:Dirty Little Secret Campy Vaudeville Variety Burlesque ShowThe York Hotel940 Sutter StreetSF, CA 94109415-885-280021 and upFriday and Saturday Late Nights ongoing11PM$25.00 was a time when those in “the know” snuck out of the house and into the night to find themselves some excitement. This usually meant one of two things; a night in jail or a night in one of the City’s numerous Speakeasy’s. Now-a-days, people in “the know” are sneaking into the Empire Plush Rooms Dirty Little Secret – A Roaring 20’s Revue. Part Camp, part Burlesque and all Vaudeville, this Dirty Little Secret has brought together acts that are sure to amaze and titillate. Your Emcee for the night, the ebullient magician RJ Owens, guides you through this fast-paced hour and a half show much like Willy Wonka guides one through the chocolate factory…you never know what will happen next. Where else can you see vintage Vaudeville sketches interwoven seamlessly with a guy who makes and juggles pancakes, the finest and sassiest chanteuses belting to the back row, and the most scintillating of burlesque performers all on one stage? Dirty Little Secret, that’s where! A place your Grandmother might have warned you about! TicketsThere are three ways to obtain tickets:1) Through our box office, by calling:
