Lady Parts Justice League Announces 'The Vagical Mystery Tour' Ft. Lizz Winstead
This summer, Lady Parts Justice League, an organization that delights in exposing sexist shit heads, will hit the road to bring their unique combination of comedy, activism, and on-the-ground support to abortion clinics and audiences across the nation! Known for using humor and pop culture to expose the extremist anti-choice forces working to destroy access to reproductive rights, LPJL has vowed to bring laughter, dancing, and sexy time to the revolution, and there is no better time than the present!
Lady Parts Justice League will travel to sixteen cities over the course of eight weeks beginning June 1. Hosted by Lizz Winstead, LPJL Founder and the Co-Creator of The Daily Show, the Vagical Mystery comedy shows will feature a wide range of voices that not only spread the good word on repro rights, but also fight against sexism, racism, and homophobia. Lizz Winstead and her LPJL team will be joined on the road by various special guests like Lea DeLaria (Orange is the New Black), Greg Proops (Super High Me), singer/songwriter Jill Sobule, Alonzo Bodden (Last Comic Standing), Jackie Kashian (Lady Dynamite), and comic/activist Maysoon Zayid for a fantastical vagical experience of music and comedy that will also include informal post-show talkbacks with abortion providers in some cities. Each show on the Vagical Mystery Tour will not only be a good time, but audiences will learn from providers how they can volunteer and support abortion clinics in their community.
The Vagical Mystery Tour is open to the general public. First tickets go on sale Monday, April 3rd. Tour tickets will range in price from $15 - $25.
When not rocking the stage and making people laugh, LPJL will do what they do best and give much needed, hands-on support to abortion clinics across the country by volunteering as clinic escorts, painting murals, putting up fences, and planting bushes. Bringing a mix of elbow grease, creativity, and heart to their efforts, LPJL will provide independent abortion providers with much needed aid and respite from the daily fuckery of anti-abortion protestors.

Founded in 2015 by Daily Show Co-Creator Lizz Winstead, Lady Parts Justice League infuses humor into reproductive rights spaces while also dropping some knowledge and activism into our pop culture and social lives, inspiring folks who have not been active in the feminist and reproductive rights movements to get on board. A rapid response creative production team made up of comedians, writers, and activists, The League is on call 24/7 producing videos, artistic memes and creating national actions that respond instantly to the breaking news surrounding reproductive rights issues.
Part of LPJL's mission is to support and raise awareness about independent abortion providers who bear the brunt of anti-abortion legislation and harassment. Several times a year, the League goes on the road to perform comedy shows in a USO format bringing entertainment and love to these clinics and their communities. They also provide elbow grease at the clinics themselves, including anything from bringing lunch to building a fence to planting bushes to block protesters. Understanding that reproductive rights issues vary by race, class, and gender identity, Lady Parts Justice League is committed to diversity by creating content that fosters a multicultural, inclusive experience within the reproductive rights movement.
