The Santa Fe Disco Brawlers are one badass clique of chicks.
Jenni Higginbotham, captain of the roller derby teamâ€”pseudonym â€śHella Gazellaâ€ťâ€”talks about her fellow dames (a roster of names including Tronsexual, Prima Batterina and Cheryl Peril), some of whom have been skating since 2005.
â€śWe actually have two members on the team working at the Childrenâ€™s Museum,â€ť says Higginbotham, so when the roller derby team was selecting a cause to support, the answer was pretty simple: The Brawlers are hosting a fundraiser.
Needless to say, this isnâ€™t your typical function. Held at the only roller rink in town, thereâ€™s limbo on skates, pin the star on the jammer (inspired by pin the tail on the donkey), raffles and a bake saleâ€”basically a full-on disco brawl.
