The Santa Fe Disco Brawlers are one badass clique of chicks.
Jenni Higginbotham, captain of the roller derby teamâpseudonym âHella Gazellaââtalks about her fellow dames (a roster of names including Tronsexual, Prima Batterina and Cheryl Peril), some of whom have been skating since 2005.
âWe actually have two members on the team working at the Childrenâs Museum,â 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 isnât your typical function. Held at the only roller rink in town, thereâs limbo on skates, pin the star on the jammer (inspired by pin the tail on the donkey), raffles and a bake saleâbasically a full-on disco brawl.
