Burlesque support, growth, and confessions

November 11, 2019

I love travelling for burlesque. Connecting with other communities and performers, the chance to run away and have a mini vacation stuck in the glitter-filled world, performing for new audiences... It's all so exciting! I am still new when it comes to travelling, despite performing away from my home city often enough.

What am I doing...? I don’t belong here... I’m not nearly as amazing or polished as everyone else around me. I’m not funny, or sexy, or flexible, or anything. Does my style even belong?

This is a call to all producers and performers alike; we need diversity on our stages.  Performers of colour, LGBTQ+, Trans/non-binary/2-spirit, disabilibabes, different bodies, classes, ages, experience levels... we need to see it. We need to be able to see ourselves within the performers on each stage, people in the media, on director boards, and in life. This is a call to producers, but it is an even bigger call to all...

Rejection: that sharp sting that we all deal with in life. As performers, we work incredibly hard to be successful, get paid, be accepted, welcome others, and to better ourselves and our community. Burlesque feels like an industry where all expression is welcome, everyone belongs, and anything is possible. So much so, that it can sometimes take extra work to process our emotions when we are not accepted into something, whe...
