Don’t Grab My Pussy Buffalo

If there’s one thing that we’ve all learned, hopefully, it’s that people don’t like to be grabbed in general.

On Saturday, March 11, a group of female comedians, poets, models, visual artists, business owners, and musicians will be drawing attention to the very real and scary issues that pertain to sexual assault (in various forms), and the need for sexual violence education, counseling and advocating for survivors of sexual assault.

Kelsey Claire Hagen and Shannon Dawn will be hosting this show, which features monologue performances, spoken word poetry, and a lot of stand-up comedy. Funds raised at the program will benefit Crisis Services.

The program provides an advocate for any person who reports sexual assault, abuse or rape. This advocacy can take place through a phone call or a hospital visit.

Don’t Grab My Pussy initially launched in Rochester, by Kelsey Claire who wanted to come up with an awareness campaign and fundraiser for an organization where she volunteers – Restore Sexual Assault Services, a program of Planned Parenthood of Central and Western NY. To her joy, the show sold out.

We welcome anyone in the community to laugh, cry, yell, and anything between with us for an evening.

Due to the overwhelming response, Kelsey decided that the next step was to take the show on the road. The next stop along that road trip happens to be Buffalo.
