TueNight Live: Photos From Our Pussy Party

We had to do something. So we decided to host a Pussy Party — an election-prepping, Thursday night edition of our typical TueNight Live events.

For this live storytelling evening, where we read many of the stories in this issue, we partnered with Industrious, who hosted us in their lovely Brooklyn second floor cafe. Through ticket and t-shirt sales, and a matching offer from the Harnisch Foundation, we were able to donate $1000 to RAINN and $1000 to Crisis Text Line.

Here are some of the photos from a rowdy, sassy and moving evening of tales, courage and women.

TueNight Editor-in-Chief Margit started us off with her Pussy Grabs Back t-shirt and a big party whoop.

Diane Di Costanzo warmed up the crowd with her piece The Boss of Me  —  the true story of a naive new hire and a too-forward boss.

Powerhouse Hitha Herzog brought her perspective about being a feminist on Fox News.

And Instagram star Melinda Alexander (@MuMuMansion) wowed us via video with her plan for us all to #GetFree.

As always, the crowd used break time to chat with old friends, meet new ones and fill up with drinks and snacks…

And buy a t-shirt, or ink up with a Pussy Party Tattly (I made my own t-shirts, and thank you, Diane Kane and Tattly for the donations)…

After the break, we spent a moment getting to know each other better…

…then Lauren whipped up the crowd with her rowdy piece, 5 Things I Wished I’d Said to the Men Who Grabbed and Groped.

Stacy beseeched us to throw a party for our pussies.

Yolanda evoked her childhood, parallel to Michelle Obama’s, with a reading of her piece from The Meaning of Michelle (St. Martin’s Press, January 2017)

And Alice brought down the house, with her masterful reading of The Case of the Bad Panties.
