You can define the __init__ method in your wx.App subclass, something like this:

class MyApp(wx.App):
  def __init__(self, thingYouWant, redirect=True, filename=None):
    self.thingyouwant = thingYouWant
    wx.App.__init__(self, redirect, filename)

  def OnInit(self):
     ... something that uses self.thingyouwant ...
     ...
