The Bitch Fest: LIVE is a “televised” cosmic dog show featuring five of the most incredible dogs of all time. Unbeknownst to the judges who focus on the anatomical features of these dogs, we hear their untold stories and contributions to society. When the dog show takes commercial breaks, we hear other untold stories from folks of marginalized genders. The winning prize goes to a surprise contestant, once again leaving the dogs/women to wonder if they’ll ever get the credit they deserve.
