DIS Magazine urges you to support the SHAKEDOWN, the documentary project by our collaborator Leilah Weinraub. SHAKEDOWN is the story of a black lesbian strip club in Los Angeles. The film is anchored in the stories of three women: Ronnie Ron, the creator and emcee of Shakedown, a large butch/stud lesbian and former Jehovah’s Witness; Egypt, a single mother, beauty pageant fanatic, and dedicated self – (re)inventor; and Jazmyne, the complicated and sometimes conflicted “Queen” of Shakedown. We go through the process of their labor with them and record what they do, and how they feel about what they are doing.
“We need your help to complete the edit of the film, master the sound and score, color correct the images, fly to LA to shoot our final interviews with the dancers and have an amazing premiere in cities across America.”
IF YOU WANNA BE SOMEBODY, IF YOU WANNA GO SOMEWHERE, YOU BETTER WAKE UP AND PAY ATTENTION. DONATE TO SHAKEDOWN TODAY!
