Introducing “The PinUp Girls”

Taken from their bio:

We are the PinUp Girls… pioneering the out proud in your face not so burlesque movement here in Hollywood. Our group has taken the pin-up culture to new heights with daring girl lovin’ girl choreography that combines classic burlesque, hip hop & authentic belly dancing, infused with original hip hop music and lyrics. We’ve brought the burlesque culture into West Hollywood with a vengeance! Imitated, yet never duplicated, we are the QUEEREST OF THE QUEER, CHERRY LIPPED, HAIR TOSSING, GARTER WEARING, PIN UP GIRLS!


Vixen Romeo is the founder and director of The Pin Up Girls, a burlesque dance troupe that embraces all different types of women. Girl on girl action, these girls make a big splash in the LGBT community. In other words, after a performance, there is not a dry seat in the house.

The group is queer based but it is not a necessary requirement for the dancers to be gay, as they don’t discriminate. Even if some of the dancers don’t identify themselves as gay, I’m sure they’re exploring their sexuality through dancing. The performance consists of beautiful young women sensually dancing with one another but they’re really dancing for us. Get close enough to the stage and the lustful eye contact of these femmes will leave you blushing

The dance routines are lasciviously choreographed by Vixen, meshing some of it up with material from the other crew members. The girls erotically strut to the styles of burlesque, hip hop and belly dancing (a major part of their dancing). Do you think that’s hot? Well, here’s something hotter….they even dance to their own music. Produced in their home, Vixen Romeo & Top 69 have 8 original songs in the Hip Hop/R&B genre. They incorporate 3 of their songs (“Booshie Bitch”, “Pin Me Up Against The Wall” and “There She Goes, She’s Real Fly”) in their show.

The Pin Up Girl Show has something for everyone; An eclectic group of sexy girly pin-ups accompanied by a couple of hot bois. The girly pin-ups are professional dancers and the bois in the group are performing artists. The group has been around for a few years and there have been various dancers throughout the history of The Pin Up Girls.

The two prestigious bois are Top 69 and Billy Bentwood.

The Pin Up Girls is what it is today because Vixen had an admiration for music, dance & all things pin-up style and united them. A woman of many talents, a Dance Teacher with a degree in Literature and the Visual Arts with a focus on Photography, she left New York and moved to Los Angeles to finish writing her lesbian novel Through Screen Doors. She is an amazing bartender and is part of the The L Girls Bartenders. Interested in a Vixen Pop Defiant Snowboard? Contact Joy Joy Designs for more information.

Being a fan of The L Word, you might recall when Jenny, having an appearance crisis, asked Shane to give her a haircut. Let’s do a little recap of the aftermath of Jenny’s new cute hairdo in Season 2 Episode 5: “Labyrinth”:

SHANE AND JENNY ARE WALKING DOWN THE STREET.

Does the cruiser look familiar? That was a cameo by Vixen Romeo. Now, let’s fast forward to Season 5 Episode 7: “Lesbians Gone Wild“ during the scene where Jenny visits Nikki in her trailer. Sexy little beats, a soulful voice and hot breaths are the background of this steamy love scene. There She Goes, She’s Real Fly is by Vixen Romeo & Top 69.

The girls are involved in the “L” scene. Monica Ford, aka Billy Bentwood, did some hot oil wrestling as Amelia QueerHeart in the FYKE extravaganza,
an Our Chart production.

The Pin Up Girl have shared a stage with Betty, Goddess and She, Margaret Cho, Terra Naomi, and Sophie B. Hawkins (damn, I wish I was at that show). Vixen loves to represent who she is and the girls have participated in various queer events with the likes of Jane Lynch, Wilson Cruz & Lance Bass. They’ve performed at various clubs from The Tangier, to The Viper Room, to The Music Box.

Curve Magazine invited the girls to perform at two of their issue release parties (Meet “Papi” L Word Party with Janina Gavankar & Meet Cover Girl Dani Campbell). There is a Pin Up Girls interview, by Jenny Sherwin, in the Jan/Feb 2008 issue of Curve magazine.

Tips when attending a P.U.G. performance:

Get close to the stage, show your appreciation with applauses & cheers, don’t be SHY OR COY, be more vocal & loud, and throw your panties on the stage.
