Parkside Lounge, NYC
One Tuesday evening in early December, photographer Gene Kennish went out to capture this benefit show with a great cause:
Hollaback Girls! A Burlesque Benefit Show to Combat Street Harassment
Rabbit Hole Productions says there’s a proper time and place to hoot and holler at women: when they’re onstage. We couldn’t agree more. In what seems to be a recent influx in the frequency and inappropriate content of street harassment, the show combined social justice with burlesque to create a very nearly naked benefit show to help combat street harassment, to raise awareness, and to provide education in the hopes of change. Enjoy this great selection of shots.
