Moe Gohlmann BYO Magic

Moe is a growing business owner of BYO magic. She started dancing at a local strip club and became a bartender where she now works to fund her dreams. 10 years in the industry inspired her to create body self care products based around ritualistic routines.

“ I started this witchy journey about 2 years in an effort to embody my true self and claim my power. I have been a Bartender at a local strip club for the better part of 10 years, I started there as a dancer. Part of what inspired me to create BYOMagic was the amazing, magical, powerful women that I work with. We all come from trauma, we all come from lots of broken pieces glued back together, and every one of us has a similar story. We are all resilient as fuck! We are all powerful and full of love. We all speak our truth and give no fucks. We are the modern witches of today. And our mission is to heal ourselves and heal the world through the lives we touch. I found Witchcraft as a way to heal myself, and a way to find myself. And I want to make that as easily accessible as possible to everyone. Be Your Own Magic infuses modern witchcraft into a simple Self Care routine. Self care is so important, and Magical self care is even better. I am so grateful to be a part of this project and to be able to share about my life and Magical journey.” —Moe Gohlmann

Jacq The Stripper

Jacqueline Frances is a Canadian stripper, comedian, artist and author. Born in Ontario in 1987, Frances was a passionate dancer and painter from toddlerhood. She attended McGill University from 2006 to 2009, where she majored in Russian Literature and Cultural Theory. After graduating, Frances worked in advertising for a few months before throwing it all away to travel to Southeast Asia to become a stock photography model and dinner theatre dancer. Unable to get the Cinderella gig at Tokyo Disney, she instead moved to Australia, where she became a stripper and immediately fell in love with the job as an amusing and lucrative way to survive - even thrive - within the confines of patriarchal capitalism. 

Frances moved to New York in 2012, where she met her wife Danielle and began writing her first book, The Beaver Show: The Crass and Inspiring Saga of an Enterprising Megababe. No one cared to publish it once it was done, so she began drawing comics and doing standup comedy. In the true stripper spirit of entrepreneurship, however, Frances self-published The Beaver Show in 2015, and has since published four more titles including the crowd-funded illustrated stripper anthology, STRIPTASTIC! A Celebration of Dope-Ass Cunts who like Money. Also in 2015, she began producing and headlining Venus Fly Trap, a sex-positive comedy show with Rachel Green that tours internationally.
