Angered by media mis-portrayal of their chosen art form, local burlesque performers and exotic dancers are planning a May 1 visit to the property of the Philadelphia Daily News to introduce their reporters to dancers who are not on the “downward spiral” reported by the newspaper’s “experts.”
We covered this story in our “Sexpose” Column last month, but now there is a time and place for the event.
Who: Melissa Bang Bang and local burlesque artists, dancers and their allies.
What: Testimony about who exotic dancers are and the many reasons they do what they do
Where: The action will take place at 400 North Broad Street
When: Supporters will gather at 3PM outside the Inquirer/Daily News Building
Why: Because the Daily News (and other media outlets) refuse to acknowledge the existence of and respect the livelihood of persons (mainly women) in the adult entertainment industry who do not fit into their pre-defined stereotypical storylines.
