BroadMinded vs. Ageism: We Won!

On Friday, April 22, a crew of badass women over 40 descended on San Francisco's Beatbox to prove that the only thing withering over time is our culture's rickety, outdated portrayal of older women. Producer Revolva turned 40 at midnight, post-show, and couldn't think of a better way to spend the last hours of her 30s than by battling ageism—and winning.

The inaugural cast of "BroadMinded: A Women Over 40 Variety Show" included: THE GOLDEN FOLLIES – 55-and-over showgirls

SHELLY ELLE Pole dance superstar

LEELA – Bellydance queen (Los Angeles)

ISIS STARR – Burlesque legend

KAREN RIPLEY – Standup comedy sensation

NAZELAH JAMISON – Slam poetry rockstar

REVOLVA – Emcee, hula hoop artist, ageism's nemesis "Sexism and ageism have been put on notice. Ingenues, take heed: This is 40 — and beyond."—SF Weekly "You give me such hope for living a full and ever deepening and expanding life."—Drea Lusion, audience member and fellow San Francisco performer "You assembled one of the best casts I've ever seen!"—DJ Rose Gold
