DOMINATRIX WAITRIX SPONSORS:
Edith Edit is proud to have DOMINATRIX WAITRIX distributed by the oldest distribution company run by and for dykes. Of course anyone can and should check out their site - and buy a copy of Dominatrix Waitrix!
Edith Edit and the Diva go way back to the days
before mainstream Chicago dykes regularly packed local clubs for sex-themed
parties. Oh how times have changed! Now the Diva has the busiest webzine
in town with all kinds of articles, interviews (including one with yours
truly), advice columns, and updated calendar of events.
From tattoos and piercings to leather gear, Eagle
is the place to go. Support this woman-owned business that supports Dominatrix
Waitrix and queer indie porn.
EARLY to BED
If you live in Chicago or plan to visit, and don't already know about
this amazing dyke-owned sex shop, wake up and get your ass over to Early
to Bed! If you're an out-of-towner, order sex toys online! All the DW
cast and crew frequent this place, which has graciously donated condoms,
dental dams, restraints, latex gloves, lube, and more, for the hot (and
safer) sex scenes you'll see in the video. Committed to supporting the
local sex-positive scene, Early to Bed supports tons of events and donates
the store front for workshops and happenings. Check out DW starlet Eve
Minax who often conducts bdsm workshops here, or the famed "The Finger"
open mic on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
LAURIE'S PLANET OF SOUND
This is one of Chicago's best independently-owned record shops. They
carry everything from punk to hip-hop to jazz. Support this place because,
aside from a diverse selection of music, zines, and videos, Laurie's supports
sex-positive queer videos like Dominatrix Waitrix!
LEATHER ARCHIVES & MUSEUM
Host of the Chicago Premiere of Dominatrix Waitrix, this non-profit organization
is a major supporter of the Chicago - and national - BDSM scene. They
are the host of the International Mr Leather annual event.
Trouble's hot new web site makes our panties wet. Real bodies
in sexy poses - what more could you ask for? Join this porn site NOW and

WINDY CITY MEDIA GROUP
Published by Tracy Baim, this news group for Chicago's LGBT community
has free weekly news, social papers, and monthlies. They
have a long history of supporting queer grassroots orgs
and projects - including Dominatrix Waitrix!
WOMEN IN THE DIRECTOR'S CHAIR
If it weren't for WIDC, "Dominatrix Waitrix" might never
have been. In addition to employeeing Edith Edit for four years, this
22+ year-old non-profit organization and its annual film festival has
nurtured, inspired, and brought together hundreds of emerging and independent
women and genderqueer film and videomakers in Chicago and throughout the
world. Edith's first collaboration, "Annie Complex," with videomaker/performer
KJ Mohr was born in WIDC's office several years ago, and the sex finale
scene of DW was shot in the black box theater. Anyone who supports independent
media should send WIDC money so they can continue to build their facilities
and host extraordinary multimedia events that you'll never see at the
corporate theater near you.
Jennie Mutation and Liberte unLocked, co-founders of Unbound Books,
do more than make Edith Edit drool (they'll make you drool too when you
see them in Dominatrix Waitrix!), they prove that you don't have to be
greedy to start your own business. These generous, genderqueer, anarchist,
activist, book-worms are constantly throwing all-ages benefit parties
at their apartment and around Chicago to raise funds for their revolutionary
book and info shop that will open within the next few years. As if they
don't have their hands full enough, they constantly take the time to volunteer
at events for their friends, collectives, and organizations they love.
If you wish you could visit their store today, send them a donation or
attend their next event so they can open for business! (see their website
