Strippers work hard for the money, so why shouldn't they form a union? That’s the basis for this fascinating documentary, about a group of performers at San Francisco’s legendary Lusty Lady club. Co-director Julia Query was herself a stripper at the Lusty Lady, and she began videotaping the employees' journey toward creating the Exotic Dancers Union, which would become an affiliate of SEIU.
The film provides a rare look behind the glittery scenes of adult entertainment and addresses the very real concerns and issues that these performers deal with on a daily basis. If you’re ready to replace the fantasy of beautiful women disrobing with a dose of reality, this is a great place to start.
