A Tribute to BC Strip Clubs (Video)

By Annie Temple

Dear Friends,

This video is a labour of love for me.

I worked in almost all the clubs represented. 

The time I spent in the stripping world was time well spent. I would say it was the best time of my life, except right now is the best time of my life. Stripping comes a close second. 

I spent 5 hours putting this together after months of collecting photographs and video. 

I have huge love for the sexy women you see, even the ones I don't know. We are sisters because we understand what it is to love what we do in the face of harsh stigma and discrimination. 

Much love to all industry folks. Thank you for your part in my amazing life journey so far. XOXO 

Love Annie
