Launched in 2012 by Austin-based activist and burlesque performer Ginger Snaps as a revealing reaction to “the perils of having Rick Perry as our governor,” Legislate This! takes shape in a trio of Texas shows benefiting Planned Parenthood chapters across the state. Alongside Snaps, Tifa Tittlywinks (Houston), Vivienne Vermuth (Dallas), former Austinite Scarlet Conte (Fremont, California) and Black Orchid (San Antonio) are “grabbing back in 2018 with an epic array of ecdysiast entertainment.”

Having raised awareness and substantial funds for the nonprofit healthcare provider, Legislate This! culminates with San Antonio’s fifth annual contribution to the cause. Emceed by “San Anto fresa” Gacho Marx (of Los MENtirosos drag king troupe), the BYOB evening showcases the talents of Orchid (pulling double duty as the event’s producer) as well as burlesque/boylesque scenesters Annabella Lugosi, Giomara Bazaldua, Maxxy Radd, Jasper St. James, Queen Anthuros, Lita Deadly and Chola Magnolia.



$10 ($50 for a table for four), Saturday, February 3, 8pm (doors at 7:30pm), Jump-Start Theater, 710 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 227-5867, ltsa18.brownpapertickets.com.
