Do you love pole dancing and twerking? So do we! We are celebrating the 21st of one of London's finest performers with a 3 hour extravaganza of shows at the legendary Club Aquarium in East London. Kitty Velour, our very own trap queen is all grown up, and in her honour we’re throwing her the sparkliest, sluttiest pole show you could possibly imagine! Join us at the East London Stripper’s Collective for another evening of frivolity and friskiness with an all star line-up of pole dancers from all over the country!
THEME. The category isssssss - Kitties and Unicorns! Dress to impress! Stripping it down to your best birthday suits. Think sex kitten meets glitter ball, hello kitty realness, unicorn hooker, glamazonian glitterpuss, Tim Burton’s cat-woman, kawaii babydoll, horny harlot, sparkly feline stripper…...Bitch, just be fabulous okuurrrr!
For some added fun, we are going interactive in the bar area too. Let the ladies welcome you into the 'Ego Massage Parlour', an audio and sensual experience designed to make you feel like a VERY IMPORTANT PERSON indeed. Or treat yourself to a session in the wildly popular VIRTUAL REALITY Striptease Booth (experience a full 360 immersive video performance by members of the ELSC). Mistress of Ceremonies, Sassy Billie, will be on the look out for misogyny, resulting in ritual humiliation for anyone found guilty of harassing the girls or over-stepping the mark.
Glitter offerings and lap dances for Kitty will be requested as payment upon entry ;)

WHO ARE EAST LONDON STRIPPERS COLLECTIVE?
ELSC are a group of feisty, articulate and fiercely independent women, who also happen to be strippers, challenging stigma and smashing stereotypes with their refreshingly honest and open discourse about their culture, working conditions and feminist beliefs. They have come together as a collective, united in their shared grievances about poor working conditions and exploitative business practises within their industry. They also lament the stigma surrounding their jobs; the lack of wider public understanding about what they do, compounded by negative connotations that come from poor mainstream media representation and “feminist” campaigns that seek to erase their industry and destroy their livelihoods.
To counter all this they have begun self-organising their own pop-up events to raise awareness, invite new audiences to explore their world and see what they do from a new perspective. So far their events have included parties, life drawing classes, public talks, costume sales, pole-dance workshops, a film screening, academic symposium and an art exhibition. Members of the collective have taught themselves how to run their own events and create their own working conditions. ELSC wish to generate a culture of respect around stripping by publicly recognising the value and worth of their creative talent and energy.
