Thank goodness, the majority of folks will and do always remember the month of October as Breast Cancer Month.
Which has come to encompass Women's Health Month...and the fine ladies from Down Under, Mandi Lodge and Emma Powell of "Busting Out," are here to take away the titilation from breasts and the sad victimization of cancer and satirize the appeal, the imagery, and the functions of the mammary gland.
As "Busting Out" ridicules the sexualization and functions of breasts, the production has raised $50,000 for breast cancer research and care, especially when they did a skit on mammograms.
Broadway veteran, Emma Powell, sets out to demystify them then shows what real breasts are like underneath. By peeling off the sexual appeal, she hopes people will feel comfortable about them and take better care of their health.
If you want to see real-life, middle-aged women making hoots over their hooters, "Busting Out" is at the Hayworth Theatre on 2511 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90057.
After making fun of your breasts then being at peace with them, Spreegirl's pink-0f course-Relaxed Modern Collection Lounge/Sleep Wear will donate 25% to Pink Envelope, a non-profit organization raising funds fof the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation.
