A group of strippers are doing their part to spotlight the importance of voting.
The bring your booty to the pole movement was inspired by a group of strippers from Atlanta, Georgia who wanted to spread the word to their clients but were limited due to COVID-19 quarantine.
Not only have these ladies created a movement, they have created a website, social media pages, and a full-length PSA directed and produced by a legit director and filmmaker.
According to the website, it was the middle of the pandemic and many of the strippers were out of work, so they decided to help spread the word about the November election! The dancers enlisted filmmaker Angela Gomes, who led the production, alongside prop technician and producer Paul Fox. The two of them created a GoFundMe called ‘Angela and Paul want black people to vote’ and it started to rain one-dollar bills to help bring their vision to life.
The PSA has the dancers twerking to an original song that chants “get your booty to the pole,” followed by strategic messaging that aims to educate uninformed voters about the local and national judicial process.
If you’re a Texas resident, October 5, 2020, is the last day to register to vote! We hope to see your booty at the poll come November.
