LOS ANGELES — 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 front lines of Weinstein’s battlefields.
“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,” Bathory explained. “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.”
Siouxsie Q said, “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. 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.”
The event features Bella Bathory, Siouxsie Q, Jamé Elis and performer 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.
Proceeds from the on-stage foot worship and spanking booth will be donated to Abeni, a charity protecting sex workers and victims of sex trafficking.
Siouxsie Q continued, “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 than with an evening of redemption rituals set in a newly renovated Tarantino universe?”
Bathory said, “Without women like Uma Thurman, men like Tarantino would be nothing. 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.”
Doors open at 10 p.m. and tickets will be available for purchase that night at Bar Sinister.
