Filmmaker Leilah Weinraub is looking for some support to finish her incredible six-year documentary film project, Shakedown:
SHAKEDOWN is the story of a black lesbian strip club in Los Angeles. The film is anchored in the stories of three women: Ronnie Ron, the creator and emcee of Shakedown, a large butch/stud lesbian and former Jehovah’s Witness; Egypt, a single mother, beauty pageant fanatic, and dedicated self – (re)inventor; and Jazmyne, the complicated and sometimes conflicted “Queen” of Shakedown. We go through the process of their labor with them and record what they do, and how they feel about what they are doing.
Please check out the Shakedown Kickstarter page and give if you can. There are some sweet “thank you” gifts to be had, including limited edition records, t-shirts, and even showgirl costumes!
