From the UK’s first LGBTQ+ strip club to a party for women’s birth rights in Ireland, we talk to the promoters and collectives using partying to ignite radical social change, inside and outside of the club. Can a strip club have a social impact? How can a club night be reimagined as an inclusive, safe space for everyone? Hear from Jeanie Crystal founder of Harpies strip club, Isis O’Regan from Room For Rebellion and Nadine Artois founder of Pussy Palace.
Isis is an activist and founder of "political party" Room for Rebellion, an abortion rights party running in London, Dublin and Belfast.

As her day to day she works in publicity representing the new vanguard in electronic music and contemporary art.
Jeanie Crystal is Jack of all trades, founder of Pattern Party, Birds Live Art Collective and Harpies Strip Club, her work is marked by collaboration, community and sex positivity with an aim to expose audiences to messages of empowerment, self deification and joy. With her latest venture, Harpies, an LGBTQ+ strip club located at the iconic Metropolis in Bethnal Green, her mission is to give the power and agency back to queer performers and sex workers, giving them a space to make their money and express themselves in an environment which they hold the power in.
