PENNY ARCADE
BITCH! DYKE! FAGHAG! WHORE!

BITCH! DYKE! FAGHAG! WHORE! is Penny Arcade's sex and censorship show and one of the most exuberant events ever to emerge from New York's downtown art scene. B!D!F!W! changed the way the world viewed erotic dancers, presenting it, as a feminist art form, and kicking off what would become the 'neo-burlesque' movement. Some of the greatest erotic dancers and performers from all over the world have performed in B!D!F!W! and many of them have gone to establish dance and burlesque revues and careers elsewhere.  
“Beg, steal a ticket” Newsweek
“Acute, humane, unmissable” Time Out
“The show has everything you wanted to know about censorship, feminism, counterculture and joy” Jeff Buckley, Rolling Stone
