We’re Herstory: NO LAW’s Final Brawl

For nearly a decade, NO LAW has raised thousands of dollars for incredible local organizations and put on fantastic shows, creating a far reaching queer and lady centered community. Let this be our final call to arms! Grab your picket signs and light your torches because well behaved women rarely make herstory!

It’s the end of an era. Are you satisfied with your grip?!

Saturday November 10th, 8 pm at One Eyed Jacks. Venue is 18+. $5-10, NOTAFLOF. Gender neutral bathrooms. Accessibility note: three stairs to get from front bar to dance floor.

Proceeds benefit the New Orleans Abortion Fund, Inc., “an organization rooted in social justice, with the purpose of challenging inequalities of class, gender, race and immigrant status by providing financial help to women who cannot afford the full cost of an abortion. We affirm a woman’s right to control her body and her destiny, and work to ensure that all women have access to quality medical care, regardless of their economic situation.”

Join NO LAW for one last night of exhilarating ladies arm wrestling, eye-popping drag/burlesque/stripping, and dazzling celebrity guest judges. DJ Lunch$Money will keep you moving all night long in addition to performances by:

Kat Snatch
Napoleon Complex
Squirt Reynolds
Woody Schitcks
and MANY more!

As per usual, ruthless wrestlers are lined up to fight for power, glory and affection. Your bets and cover support local women’s organizations and could win you bar tabs, gift certificates or sweet NO LAW swag. Bring small bills for betting and bribing. Come for the drinks and ladies, stay for the smackdown.

Summer is coming.

barbells

NOLAW will usher in the long hot New Orleans summer on May 30 with a Cruel Summer Brawl at One Eyed Jack’s! This event will offer the usual biceps and bravado you know and love, along with a sweaty layer of sand, sun and SPF 30. Eight wrestlers will go arm-to-arm for the championship while NOLAW’s MCs and celebrity judges keep the beach party going. As always, come ready to dance to NOLAW DJs and win prizes from local businesses.

All proceeds from the Cruel Summer Brawl will benefit the New Orleans Harm Reduction Network, a volunteer-run collective that operates on the principles of harm reduction to offer material, educational, and advocacy support to drug-users and their communities in southeastern Louisiana. The NOHRN’s aim is to affirm the dignity of every individual by promoting wellness, self-care, and educated drug-use, while reducing the transmission of HIV, hepatitis, and other blood-borne pathogens among drug-users, and to seek a collective empowerment of all marginalized populations.

Doors open at 8PM, show begins at 9PM. $5 cover, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Wanna wrestle, volunteer, or get involved? Please contact us at neworleansladiesarmwrestling@gmail.com!
