FUNds

My new hit show "Boy in a Dress" opens in just over a month, we have raised £12,000 towards the production so far, but still we are just over £500 short of our financial targets. And so I have put together this fundraising page in the hope that we can bet the clock and pay the bills!  

Visit http://www.indiegogo.com/La-JohnJoseph-Boy-in-a-Dress and please contribute if you can, and circulate if you can't.



Here's some info on the show itself;
Autobiographical, raucously political, and accidentally profound, Boy in a Dress follows the life story thus far of La JohnJoseph, a third-gendered, fallen Catholic, ex-fashion model from the wrong side of the tracks as she moves from the council estates of Bootle to the strip clubs of San Francisco.

Catholicism and drag, public sexuality and body dysmorphia. La JohnJoseph brings together an outrageous but heartfelt slew of true-life tales studded with her own reworkings of iconic songs from wide ranging artists such as Leonard Cohen, Justin Vivian Bond and Cole Porter.

Boy in a Dress is a frank and almost charming triptych uniting all three of La JohnJoseph’s solo memoir shows: I Happen To Like New York, Underclass Hero  and Notorious Beauty, in a ’retrospectacle’ exploring the intersection of class, gender, religion and identity formation from a somewhat unique cultural perspective.

Maariv

Alexander took a shopping trip with photographer Iwajla Klinke, and Israeli newspaper Maariv made it into an article. I don't read Hebrew but the pictures are cute.



And here's what the Pet Shop Boys have to say.
