Portland's interview magazine, About Face, recently spoke with Elle regarding how she got became involved with lobbying for Oregon's recent stripper legislation, the stigma associated with working as an exotic dancer and more:
As the longest running female columnist for Exotic Magazine and editor of the book Strange Times: Tales from American Strippers, Elle Stanger is no stranger to speaking about her experiences in the stripping world.
This is exactly what she has been doing for the past ten months as an advocate for legislation that will improve the working conditions, safety, and lives of entertainers here in Portland. The result of Elle’s efforts is House Bill 3059, which passed through the Oregon Senate and House of Representatives on Monday July 6, 2015. The bill, which had nearly unanimous bipartisan support, will allow for a hotline number and a posted worker’s bill of rights, available in all common areas shared by live entertainers.
