Lucy Lie, with my girl Drew. Cameron D, who will you be?!
We told you this year’s Fringe! would be hot, well times it by 3 in a queer-baiting epic of early noughties proportions as we celebrate and imitate Charlie’s Angels 2: Full Throttle.
Meet Hollywood (via Hackney) starlets Mahatma Khandi, Lori Mae and Kiki Snatch - and bring your girl gang for the full heist experience.
It’s the one with P!nk hosting the motocross track, the late great Bernie Mac, and Demi Moore’s $40,000 body on the beach. Come dressed as your bad-ass favourite, or go full throttle and get into the girl gang heist spirit with a range of dress up options – and far less appropriation than in Charlie’s Angels 1 (2001).
This film sees the angels dress in boy drag, do stripper burlesque with the (original, no-singing, all-dancing) Pussycat Dolls, and run through the air in slow slow motion. Who knew, angels really can fly.
With our very own local angelz leading the way, come big, or reveal all, in our wet t-shirt contest and secure the bag in our other lezzy, girly games. We can’t wait to get a piece of the action.

CW: It’s 2003. So, murky cultural representation, an allusion to domestic violence, misguided attitudes. 1 instance of slur relating to dwarfism. Blood, gore, and girlfights. Queerbaiting and wet t-shirts.
