So I know that it is over a year away, but this is something I have been dreaming of for years. I wanted to have one based on the NW, then I realized that didn’t satisfy my desires and left me feeling ‘blah’. I marinated on it for a bit and it finally came to me.
SHADES OF BURLESQUE FESTIVAL
Shades of Burlesque Festival is designed to bring burlesque performers of color and our allies together and to form a truly diverse and uplifting community.
Our mission-To provide a nurturing and supportive community that educates, promotes, and uplifts burlesque performers of color and our allies.
