#GoGoGivesBack
Viktor Devonne
#GoGoGivesback is a project from White Elephant Burlesque, inspired by NYC burlesque performer Johnny Panic, to provide funds to foundations and charities that need our attention in this tumultuous political landscape.

Mr. Panic pointed out that come January 2017, many important foundations and companies that provide service and access to discriminated or disenfranchised minorities and groups of people would suddenly feel that much more alone, afraid, or unfunded.

At RockBar NYC, twice a month, White Elephant Burlesque hosts a series of burlesque beauties to dance for all they can, and you as an audience member can donate direct to the bucket, their g-string, or wherever they permit you to file it. That money, plus a donation from White Elephant Burlesque Corp, is then mailed to the charity the gogo artist has selected.

WE thanks you for coming together during this insane political climate to give love and money to companies that dedicate themselves to helping people like us and our community.

  • $141 raised for New Alternatives
  • New Alternatives for LGBT Homeless Youth was created in October, 2008 by a group of volunteers and professionals with experience working with homeless LGBT youth in various shelter and transitional housing settings. The mission of the organization is to increase the self-sufficiency of homeless LGBT youth to enable them to "go beyond" the shelter system. We intend to do this by providing case management, community organizing, life skills groups, community-building recreational activities, and, in the long-term, supported employment opportunities. Our guiding principles are those of harm reduction, youth development, and empowerment.
