Directed by Julia Query, "Live Nude Girls UNITE!" is a documentary on the struggle for local peepshow establishment, the Lusty Lady, to unionize into an all-women worker-owned powerhouse! With a complex look at the sex industry and women's role in controlling their own bodies, LNGU! is a poignant and often hilarious look at one woman's fight for fair wages
and equal rights as an exotic dancer and the movement that resulted. To this day, the Lusty Lady remains the only fully unionized exotic dancer's establishment in the US, overcoming union-busting, threats and intimidation and leading the way for similar attempts across the country.
Join director Julia Query for discussion after the film!
