The Yellow Peril X APA Vagina Monologues
May 14, 2012 by CBRUHS

ChimCo appreciates the power and prominence of vaginas. So we’ve partnered with the fierce females behind the Asian Pacific American Vagina Monologues by bringing Yellow Peril Dildos to APAVM audiences and supporters. A Yellow Peril Dildo was raffled off at the “Oakland Hella Loves Vaginas” dance party fundraiser, and another will be up for silent auction at the show on May 17th.

In a climate where women’s rights and agency over how to care for our own bodies is under attack by wealthy white men, we need a production like the APA Vagina Monologues. Because it’s about asserting and reaffirming our power as women of color, as sisters, as human beings. Which is why — as many times as you may have read or seen Eve Ensler’s classic — there still needs to be a space for us to make the production our own and give it new life with APA voices.

As stated by the women behind the APA Vagina Monologues:

This landmark theatrical performance profiles the intimate stories of women impacted by sexual assault, war, and pain, but also lifts celebratory perspectives on sexual self-discovery, empowerment, and love.

The APA Vagina Monologues is more than just a show. It’s about igniting change, raising the issues of Asian Pacific American women, and ending violence (of all forms) against women everywhere.

And it’s co-presented by V-Day San Francisco and the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF), the country’s only multi-issue women’s organization for Asian Pacific American women and girls. All proceeds benefit NAPAWF (they also have a fundraising campaign here).

So what more reason do you need? Get your tix for the Thursday May 17th show at San Francisco’s historic Castro Theatre here. And win yourself a Yellow Peril Dildo…do it for the vaginas!
