Siouxsie Q’s Mermaid Musical “Fish Girl” Swims North to Portland

Mermaid Piggy Tub wm-2-41.jpg

PORTLAND, OR - Following successful runs in New York City and Los Angeles, the multi-talented Siouxsie Q is heading to Portland next month to perform her critically acclaimed mermaid musical, Fish Girl. The upcoming production hits the stage as part of the Come Inside Festival that runs from October 4-7, 2018.

“I've been working on this play throughout my entire career in the adult industry, the first songs came to me nearly the same week I first had sex for money,” explains Siouxsie Q. “While the songs and the story have stayed essentially the same, the nuances of the work has grown by leaps and bounds as my career and my relationship to the sex industry has evolved.”

Described by BroadwayWorld.com as “on the cutting edge of fantasy,” “Fish Girl” is the poignant and entertaining story of an enchanted mermaid plucked from the sea and doomed to sing for her supper. This unconventional fairy tale sings the story of a lovestruck tourist who falls into the deep end when he meets the “girl” of his dreams. The original production is a fully-realized dream on stage created by Siouxsie Q and Sean Andries. Written and performed from the perspective of a sex worker and the one who loves her, “Fish Girl” serves as an allegory for our current state of affairs and exposes the deeply personal stakes of sexual politics.

“We workshopped and premiered the show at Portland's Fertile Grounds Festival in 2012, and we are so pleased to bring this re-vamped version back to where it was born,” explains Q. “Additionally, we have been blessed with the opportunity to collaborate with my longtime friend, Penthouse Pet, and fellow member of the APAC Board of Directors, Olive Glass, who has released a brand new set of illustrations that will be premiered on an antique slide projector as part of the show.”

“Fish Girl” received the “Best of The Fest” Award at the 2013 San Francisco Fringe and hailed praise from outlets like the San Francisco Chronicle and SF Weekly. The show will be held at the Coho Theater on from October 4-7. Pre-sale tickets can be purchased at this link: https://www.merctickets.com/events/57360605/fish-girl-oct-4-7

Sex Worker Rights Summit Pens ‘National Sex Worker Anti-Criminalization Principles’

LetUsSurvive-1073.jpg

LOS ANGELES, CA - Following unprecedented involvement during the International Whores’ Day actions that took place June 1-2 in numerous cities across the nation, a summit of sex workers, survivors, and advocates met late last month to discuss the next steps for the sex workers rights movement in the United States. The group published an important piece of educational information for sex workers and allies titled, National Sex Worker Anti-Criminalization Principles, now up at the APAC website.

LetUsSurvive-1062.jpg

“Sex workers must no longer be treated as though we are not an integral part of society,” said Siouxsie Q. James, Secretary of The Adult Performer Advocacy Committee. “We stand and fight in community with adjacent anti-criminalization movements that seek to rebuild our country and dismantle the ways in which we have policed and persecuted marginalized communities since our nation’s founding.”

The National Sex Worker Anti-Criminalization Principles outline a working template for the movement, advocating for people impacted by labor issues, social stigma, and criminalization. The movement condemns any attempts at restricting sex worker autonomy and self-determination.

“This document positions sex workers in a way that takes back our narratives, insisting that our voices are prioritized when it comes to policies that affect our lives,” said Cris Sardina, Director of the Desiree Alliance. Sardina runs a sex worker rights convention that chose to cancel its 2019 conference programming in light of the new laws that further criminalize the industry.

While the war on the sex industry has been raging for centuries in the United States, the catalyst for this latest wave of lobbying, litigation, media advocacy, and direct actions is a new anti-sex trafficking bill, commonly known as SESTA/FOSTA, which was signed into law in late March. Sex workers and their allies, along with trafficking survivors and advocates, have since been organizing and mobilizing to speak out about the law’s unintended, but ultimately harmful, consequences.

These communities, who are often pitted against one another in both politics and media, came together to respond to the disappearance of dozens of online resources that sex workers had once used to put valuable space, time, and scrutiny between themselves and their clients. Now unable to use the internet freely to advertise and screen, those who seek to exploit sex working individuals have more power than ever, forcing many workers to rely more heavily on potentially exploitative third parties, or turn to riskier options, including street-based sex work, where they are far more likely to experience violence from both predators and police.

LetUsSurvive-1009.jpg

“We hope that this serves as a starting point for lawmakers, journalists, advocates, and academics to better understand our community’s needs,” added Kristin DiAngelo, a sex trafficking survivor, sex worker, and the Executive Director of the Sacramento chapter of the Sex Worker Outreach Project.

Ceyenne Dorsohow founder of the Gays and Lesbians Living In a Transgender Society (G.L.I.T.S.) stated, “This was an intense drawing of emotions into a document that sets the precedent of what are now asking for and expecting of other leaders, society, and government.”

The National Sex Worker Anti-Criminalization Principles list four major points, including a general statement of purpose, recommendations for sex workers and allies, and rights of sex workers. The piece uses the 1983 Denver Principles as a template, which unequivocally declared and demanded the human rights of people living with HIV/AIDS, this document serves as a manifesto for how the sex working community will take back the narrative of exploitation and criminalization and reframe their struggle as a battle for basic human rights.

Siouxsie Q and Femme Domme Fatale Host Cannabis-Themed Speakeasy Show this Saturday

ProhibitionSoloSiouxsie.jpg

Hollywood’s Femme Domme Fatale is proud to announce their second annual 1920’s  speakeasy-themed show this Saturday at Bar Sinister. The two-act event celebrates the end of cannabis prohibition in California and includes live fire and burlesque performances, as well as a costume contest with prizes from War Party Extracts and The Stockroom.

Los Angeles, CA - Siouxsie Q and the Femme Domme Fatale crew bring their speakeasy-themed show to Bar Sinister this Saturday to celebrate the end of cannabis prohibition in California.

“Legalized cannabis consumption came to the Golden State this January, and yet with the bevy of new taxes, and the looming threat of punitive federal repercussions, it's difficult to feel like prohibition has really ended,” said Siouxsie Q. “We want to ensure that we are amplifying the voices and businesses of people who have disproportionately affected by the criminalization of cannabis, and continue to create more space for the LGBTQ community, women, indigenous folks, and people of color to succeed in the new California green rush.”

Femme Domme Fatale’s Bella Bathory has hosted the event at Bar Sinister since 2014 as a way to promote visibility of queer femmes in the Los Angeles BDSM scene. Every month she brings burlesque, fire, and kink performances to the stage.

“I am so excited to have the trifecta of vintage fetish glam, marijuana madness, and amazing fire performances for this show,” added Bella Bathory. “This is our second prohibition themed show, and this time you can expect 1920's inspired costuming and jazz music, with the addition of our favorite green friend. We will also be unveiling cocktails from Buck Angel's CBD tonic line, Pride Wellness LA, for some prohibition era drinks with a CBD twist.”

Scheduled to perform that evening are Bella Bathory, Siouxsie Q, Ash Hollywood, Michael Vegas, and Daisy Ducati. Dominatrix Mistress Maia McQueen will be hosting the event, as well as the BDSM play area on stage.

Bar Sinister and Femme Domme Fatale are proud to announce their event sponsors, including indigenous owned and operated vape company War Party Extracts, CBD capsules from Elysium Infusions, and LGBTQ health and wellness cannabis line Pride Wellness LA. Trans advocate and adult performer Buck Angel will also be launching a new 1920’s themed CBD cocktail at the event.

The Stockroom is sponsoring prizes for the midnight costume contest hosted by legendary Kent Kalibur and guests are encouraged to come dressed in their finest flapper gear.

Club Bar Sinister is located at 1652 N. Cherokee Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90028. This month’s edition of Femme Domme Fatale will be held on April 21, from 10pm-2am. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door. Facebook invite can be found here.

Adult Industry Professionals Take to NPR Airwaves to Talk #MeToo and Sex Work

CYBERSPACE — NPR’s 1A March 26th 2018 program “Missing From #MeToo — Sex Workers” led by host Joshua Johnson presented a guest panel of female professionals from the adult entertainment industry: Cris Sardina (Coordinator of Desiree Alliance) Siouxsie Q (Host of The Whorecast podcast, author, and Secretary of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee), adult film director Jacky St. James, and queer adult filmmaker Shine Louise Houston (Founder of Pink and White Productions).

According to the segment description: “The MeToo movement has upended a status quo that tolerated sexual harassment at work. Well, at some workplaces. Exotic dancers, adult film actors and escorts still fear retribution and ridicule for speaking out. This month, two porn actors [Leigh Raven and Riley Nixon] spoke up with allegations of “misleading booking practices, excessive face-slapping and choking, and boundary violations.” In an interview with Cosmopolitan, rapper and former stripper Cardi B cast doubt on whether MeToo would be relevant for all women.” The show, which also included thoughts on Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minute interview, the recent passing in Congress of FOSTA-SESTA, and the NYC Stripper Strike, and asks: “Are women in work that relies on sexuality on the margins of MeToo?”

Covering a wide array of topics, the 47-minute segment drew comments from listeners and presented guests the opportunity to sound off about recent events, expose stigma, and dispel misconceptions related to sex work.

“Nobody should be shamed for their career choices, and making the assumption that people working in the sex industry are somehow ill-equipped at deciding their career path is lunacy,” shared Jacky St. James. “We should be protecting the rights of women everywhere.”

When asked what actions the adult industry has taken against sexual allegations, Shine Louise Houston said, “Performer advocacy has been going on for a while, just like the #MeToo movement has been here but has only recently exploded into the mainstream. Inside the sex work industry, there have been efforts; Red Light Legal and other organizations have been around for a while. This isn’t something new, but we’re going to keep persisting.” Implying that the larger visibility of #MeToo will have a positive impact on sex workers ability to be heard, she added, “Our own strives towards worker safety and consent on set will continue, and I see this movement getting stronger and stronger.”

The broadcast was met with enthusiasm from listeners and the panelists saw it as an encouraging evolution towards the adult industry taking control over the narrative about what it means to engage in sex work.

“Getting the opportunity to speak on the National Public Radio platform about such important issues felt like a huge step for the movement, said Siouxsie Q. “I’m so grateful for how respectful and welcoming the producers of 1A were with us. I hope we see more people from our community being given a seat at the table during these kinds of conversations.”

Cris Sardina agreed and on behalf of her organization stated: “Desiree Alliance thanks NPR 1A for an unbiased interview. Sex workers presenting ourselves with our views about the discussions presented today, gives the autonomy and voice back to us. We know what’s best for our communities and I couldn’t be more proud to be with a panel of intelligent, strong, and vital women that represent our industries.”

“In order to protect our performers and the rights of everyone working in the sex industry, speaking openly about assault and harassment in the workplaces critical,” said Jacky St. James. “Today’s NPR broadcast was the start of a very important conversation. And just as #TimesUp in the mainstream world, so too is it for the adult one.”

As the #MeToo movement grows, conversations like these will continue to educate the public and bring sex worker experiences into the mainstream.

1A is produced by WAMU 88.5, and distributed by NPR. Listen to NPR’s 1A recorded program here: https://the1a.org/shows/2018-03-26/missing-from-metoo-sex-workers

Siouxsie Q Hosting Femme Domme Fatale's “Pulp Friction” this Saturday in Hollywood

Siouxsie Q, Bella Bathory, and the new Femme Domme Fatale pay tribute to the women who served on the frontlines of Weinstein’s Hollywood with their upcoming one-night event, Pulp Friction.

PulpFrictionSiouxsie.jpg

Los Angeles, CA - Siouxsie Q will be hosting the upcoming Femme Domme Fatale show, Pulp Friction, this Saturday at Club Bar Sinister in Hollywood. The one-night event celebrates the birthday of show producer, Bella Bathory, and pays tribute to powerful Hollywood women who survived on the Miramax battlefields and brought Tarantino’s crown jewels to life.

“While mainstream actresses have historically felt the need to remind the world of how different they are from women like Bella and myself, since hearing Uma Thurman’s account of her time on set with Quentin Tarantino and behind closed doors with Harvey Weinstein, I have been haunted by how similar the predicaments we find ourselves in can be,” said Siouxsie Q. “Feeling unsafe on set isn’t something any performer should be faced with, and yet so many of us have experienced that pressure to deliver a performance, even when our safety is on the line.”

Pulp Friction is a one-night Femme Domme Fatale event featuring Bella Bathory, Siouxsie Q, Jamé Elis, and legendary adult film star Ash Hollywood. The post-Valentine’s Day show will also welcome back three-time XBIZ Award winner Michael Vegas for a breathtaking midnight fire performance.

The Femme Domme Fatale crew will be donating proceeds from their on-stage foot worship and spanking booth that evening to Abeni, an organization creating a safe, confidential space for those working in the Orange County sex trades, as well as those being domestically sex trafficked. With an emphasis on harm reduction and support services for those working the spectrum of sex work in Orange County, they have continued to fill gaps where other service providers or organizations either could not or would not. For more information, visit their site at Abeni.org.

“The opportunity for Abeni to partner with other sex workers and celebrate the strength, power, and resilience of women is incredibly exciting for us,” said Abeni founder Meg Munoz. “To be further enabled to pour back into those who come to us for support is a gift. As women in an already marginalized, stigmatized, criminalized industry, using the very tools of our work and play to subvert the system and support each other are icing on the cake.”

“In the wake of the stream of new information that has come to light about Tarantino's character, there was a moment I considered canceling the show entirely,” explained Pulp Friction producer Bella Bathory. “I think it's incredibly important as these stories continue to surface in the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement to not completely cast aside these bodies of work, but to shift our focus towards lifting up the women who made them.”

“May the names of their abusers be swiftly forgotten and the celluloid evidence of these women’s survival be remembered as the war stories they are,” added Q. “The creative work done by each actress to embody these femme fatale archetypes is nothing short of channeling the divine, and what better way to usher in a new year for Femme Domme Fatale and a new era of accountability and action for those who use their power to exploit and abuse women with an evening of redemption rituals set in a newly renovated Tarantino universe.”

“Without women like Uma Thurman, men like Tarantino would be nothing,” Bathory continued. “We need to tell women that they are valued, that they have the power to make these men, and they can rescind that power when it's no longer safe. Women are the most powerful beings on this planet, and I look forward to celebrating that with this show.”

Club Bar Sinister is located at 1652 N. Cherokee Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Pulp Friction will be held on February 17, 2018, from 10pm-2am. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

Siouxsie Q Speaking on AEE Panel Today, Signing at AVN Booth

11885313_914679208599459_5746462303342736320_n.jpg

Las Vegas, NV - Siouxsie Q will be speaking on the AEE Seminar “Survey Says...” today, in addition to signing at the AVN Booth Wednesday-Friday.

“This week is like the World Series of Porn. It's my favorite time of year, and I love how our big family gets to come together to celebrate our success and lay groundwork for the coming year,” said Siouxsie Q. “So many new performers attend the expo from all over the world, and I want them to know that APAC and the community is here to hold them up and support them as they navigate this business, and the stigma that, unfortunately, comes with it.”

The “Survey Says…” seminar is at 4-5pm at Festival Hall C. Q will be joined by fellow panelists, Professor Constance Penley, Nina Hartley, and Ian O’Brien. The description is as follows:

As members of the adult community know, when journalists write about this industry they often get it wrong. Thankfully, some scholars have put in time and effort to really study this industry, producing studies of erotica, pleasure products and other aspects of the business. One group turned their attention on the AVN Expo and surveyed fans at last year’s event. They’ll discuss the results of the survey with a panel of industry insiders.

In addition to speaking today, she will be signing and meeting fans at the AVN booth at these times:  

Wednesday, January 24th at 6pm

Thursday, January 25th at 2pm

Friday, January 26th at 3pm

She will have merchandise and DVDs for sale, as well as information about APAC.

Recently elected to the APAC Board of Directors, Siouxsie wasted no time getting to work. She’s worked closely with the current board members to meet APAC’s outreach and recruitment goals for AVN, which include a social and livestreamed panel on Friday from 530-630pm.

Adult industry writer, performer, and advocate, Siouxsie Q, has been creating media about sex work since 2012 when she launched her popular podcast, The Whorecast.

Siouxsie Q Scores AVN Nomination for Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene

436138.jpg

Los Angeles, CA - Siouxsie Q receives a coveted AVN Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene for her performance in Adam and Eve’s Luck of the Draw.

“This film is very dear to my heart as it pulls a lot of content from my real life, including issues of polyamory, sex work, and even podcasting!” said Siouxsie Q. “I play myself in a sort of alternate universe where The WhoreCast has morphed into a radio show on alternative relationships and Arabelle Raphael is my girlfriend. We have an incredibly hot and spontaneous threesome with a gorgeous stripper, played by Bella Rossi, and demonstrate (by showing what not to do) why communication and honesty are so important when exploring non-monogamy.”

Luck of the Draw stars Siouxsie Q, Cherie Deville, Mona Wales, Arabelle Raphael, Daisy Ducati, Nikki Darling, Bella Rossi, Lilith Luxe, Sebastian Keys, Owen Gray, and Mickey Mod (who is also the director).

“Siouxsie Q was not only an inspiration on the set, but in the writing of the film as well,” added director Mickey Mod. “She helped bring an authenticity around trust and fidelity in open/poly relationships. She is truly a joy to have around and is an amazing performer and actress.”

“Luck of the Draw was very much a passion project, and I'm so pleased Adam and Eve made it possible,” she added. “Mickey Mod wrote and directed the film and was truly able to capture the dynamic sex and relationship cultures of the Bay Area, which is my home. I made this movie just as I was beginning to separate from the relationships I'd built in the Bay and transition to my life in Los Angeles, so my performance in this movie is really fueled by what was authentically happening in my life at the time.”

Siouxsie Q was nominated for the same award in 2015 for her role in San Francisco Lesbians: The Scissr Sex App. She stated, “I’m honored to be recognized by AVN for the second time for my skills at having sex with more than one girl at the same time. I’ve truly been prepping my whole life for these roles.”

“Historically, sex workers have often relied on informal mentorship relationships to learn the ins and outs of the industry, and I'm so excited that Lydia is formalizing that strategy,” said Siouxsie Q. “Education, resources, and community building can save lives, and Lydia's platforms are catering to a population that has been largely ignored. From tax resources and knock off red bottom heels to a platform to help vulnerable workers avoid potential sex traffickers, Dupra is on a mission to serve her community now that she's retired from the front lines.”

Lydia Dupra has been called a lot of things in her journey as a sex worker, but now that she has retired from the front lines, she is known mostly as The Heaux Mentor. Last year she published her first e-book, The Complete Guide to Escorting (Getting Started), and made it available free online to sex workers everywhere.

Since then she has launched various platforms that cater to nearly every corner of the sex industry--from survival sex workers who are vulnerable to traffickers, to porn stars and cam girls, Dupra aims to create resources and products that help all sex workers survive and thrive.

Adult industry writer, performer, and advocate, Siouxsie Q, has been creating media about sex work since 2012 when she launched her popular podcast, The Whorecast. Since then she has written extensively for publications such as the San Francisco Weekly and Wired.com, and her first book Truth, Justice and the American Whore was published in May of 2016 to rave reviews.

Pivoting to politics, she served as the Director of Policy and Industry Relations for The Free Speech Coalition from 2016-2017 leading the historic and winning battle against California Proposition 60 and further ensuring victory for adult industry workers in regulatory battles with Cal/Osha. She continues to write, teach, podcast, and perform regularly. She was recently nominated for 2018 AVN Award for Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene for her performance in Adam and Eve's polyamory themed movie, Luck of the Draw.
