SHE'S SHAMELESS - An all-ages fundraising party for Shameless, Ontario's new progressive girls' magazine

Music By: The Sick Lipstick, The Creeping Nobodies, and Pomegranate Squad (all girl Klezmer band) with DJs Hannah Sung (Much Music), Tyler Clarke Burke (Three Gut Records) and Joanne Huffa (Chart Magazine)

What: Music, dancing, art, DIY marketplace, kissing booth, prizes

When: Saturday, September 20, 8 p.m.

Where: Tranzac, 292 Brunswick Avenue, Toronto

How much: $8 at the door

Why: She's Shameless is a fund- and attention-raiser for a soon-to-launch magazine that will revolutionize teen media. Shameless is for young women who want more than the hair and makeup tips shovelled out by typical teen mags. Shameless is for girls who are drastically underrepresented in the mainstream media: freethinkers, queer youth, young women of colour, punk rockers, feminists, intellectuals, artists and activists. Shameless tackles social issues, politics and independent arts with wit and wisdom.

She's Shameless is a female-friendly dance party and craft/zine fair. Female DJs will be spinning the best in indie rock, electronica, no-wave and rock music. Popular local bands will get the crowd moving. The DIY marketplace will allow concertgoers to pick up new zines and crafts. There will even be a kissing booth, to steal smooches from feminist hotties.

The whole thing sounds fantastic. Just one thing:

I can see where this would cause some feminist debate.

Tell me about it. But with a name like Shameless, you can't be scared of a little friendly debate. And for what it's worth, the kissing booth is totally voluntary, gay and lesbian friendly, and staffed by girls *and* boys!

Hope to see you there!
