The Feminist Strip Club is a group of current and former erotic dancers who explore the present conditions of and utopian visions for the strip club industry. We hold events, make performances, publish zines and more.

The cover of Issue 1 of The GRIND

The Feminist Strip Club’s first publication, Issue 1 of The GRIND, is available now!
In cooperation with Workday Minnesota, The Feminist Strip Club has produced a series of articles about our experiences in and visions for stripping. These articles appear in different forms on Workday Minnesota’s website and in our very own hardcopy magazine.

The GRIND is a 24-page, full-color, 8.5 x 11″ zine with articles, photos, personal essays and strippers’ responses to online strip club reviews – all produced by members of the FSC. This issue has a special focus on the history of and upcoming changes to Minneapolis ordinances that regulate adult entertainment venues, but we feel it has interest beyond the local area for those who are following the growing movement for sex workers’ rights.

Copies of the The GRIND are available in Minneapolis at:

In Chicago it can be found at Quimby’s Books and at Atomic Books in Baltimore. More locations to be announced soon.

You can also receive a copy via mail by making a donation of at least $12 using the link below.

What else has The Feminist Strip done? We’ll be posting more about that soon, but in the meantime you can read more about our work at the Weisman Art Museum
