Three crewmen of the U.S.S. Intercourse undergo sex changes so they can go on an undercover mission to the all-woman, resort planet Clitoris. Disguised as showgirls from Earth they must Dance! Dance! Dance! and foil a plot to disrupt the stability of this Oasis of Glamour in a Sea of Mediocrity. Prepare for more wigs than Wigstock, more makeup than a Miss America pageant, more camp than Ed Wood. And remember: “Glamour first, glamour last, glamour always!”
The event is a fundraiser for the Arizona LGBT+ History Project, an initiative to preserve stories and other archival materials that document the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) history in Arizona. After centuries of cultural, social and legal oppression, the LGBT+ community has made tremendous gains toward equality in the past 50 years. However, much of the “official” history of the LGBT+ community is both scant and pejorative. The goal of the Arizona LGBT+ History Project is to gather the individual stories of the people who once hid in the shadows.
Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian, is Librarian turned Hipstorian. After relocating to Arizona, Marshall often heard the cry “there is no history, here,” but that was simply not true. Following his passion for uncovering the weird, the wonderful, and the obscure treasures from our past: those semi-forgotten people, places, and events that have made us who we are today. He has developed an almost cult like following for sharing history through trivia, tours, and lectures. Marshall is the Project Manager for Phoenix Pride’s, Arizona LGBT+ History Project
