LAist Interview: Jill Soloway on Lady Party IV, 2/23/08
There are few things that bring sex workers, old-school feminists and modern-day Hollywood together under one roof. But thanks to Jill Soloway (right), writer and co-founder of the feminist group OBJECT, this seemingly impossible dream of yore will be realized on Saturday, Feb. 23, at 8 p.m.
It’s called Lady Party IV, and it’s definitely all about the ladies. Hosted by OBJECT, Lady Party IV will feature Obie Award-winning playwright Heather Woodbury performing her one-woman show "The Last Days of Desmond 'Nani' Reese: A Stripper's History of the World," followed by a performance by singer-songwriter-pianist Nellie McKay. Men--the bold and unafraid--and women alike are welcome.
Jill, a former writer for "6 Feet Under" and author of the book "Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants," took some time out from preparing dinner to talk about OBJECT, strippers, censorship, and more.
