Sexy Beast: A Benefit for Planned Parenthood

As a predominantly (but not at all intentionally) female based crew here at Art Nerd LA, we have a lot of love for Planned Parenthood… and at times we like to think of ourselves as Sexy Beasts.  It should come as no surprise then, that we are excited about the inaugural Sexy Beast Benefit at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel Downtown LA.

In their own words, Sexy Beast is “a gala evening of art auction, revelry and performance, with all proceeds to benefit the clinics of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. Sexy Beast celebrates the art world’s power to effect positive change, touch peoples’ lives, and create value far beyond commercial gain. It also celebrates the different ways we express our humanity.”

I can’t put it into words any better than they have here: “Sexy isn’t defined by conventional beauty but by an esprit, a way of feeling and showing up in the world. We are all sexy beasts … especially when we use our powers for good.”  Preach, Sexy Beast, preach.
