Four of some of Portland’s finest performers, as the Liberty Belles, are developing a show to take on the road to get people to register to vote. Portland's sensational Pepper Pepper, Carla Rossi, Madame DuMoore, and Hydrangea Strangea headline the show. Executive Director of The Liberty Belles is Kyle Ashby. On Sunday, April 8th at Darcelle's the Belles will be doing a drag-themed fundraiser celebrating the themes of the show to garner interest...and of course funds.

Already, I think the Belles are getting a bit of good luck. Today, April 5th would have been actress--and gay icon--Bette Davis 110th birthday. Incidentally, she was one of the co-founders of the famed Hollywood Canteen, which catered to WWII soldiers shipping out for duty from or on leave in Hollywood.  

I had so many questions, partially because anything with a remotely WWII theme interests me, and partially because I knew they would have a lot to say, that I’ve recorded their answers here.
