How long have you been burlesquing?
I just turned one!

What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
Body Positivity and the supportive community among women, that’s what drew me to it.  Now, fifty-percent of what I do is for me – I’m a performer, it’s who I am.  And I love feeling great about myself on stage, in large part due to this art-form. The other fifty-percent is for whichever women in the audience may be inspired by me.  Other people have been that for me. I’m happy to be that for whoever needs me.

What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
I’m a musical theater actress and a yogi. I also work as a model, art model and write musical satire promoting Body Positivity.

Trick or Treat? Please elaborate.
In first grade I made a sweatshirt with TONS of glitter paint and an iron-on teddy bear witch that said “I AM THE TREAT” – I’ll stick with that!

Come see Unsung Hera and the rest of our treats at The Triad on October 29. Tickets.

How long have you been burlesquing?
Six wonderful, crazy years, as of October 15th.

What drew you/draws you to burlesque?
A dirty old man at a gay bar asked if I wanted to take my clothes off for money. I said yes.

A few things keep drawing me to burlesque. One is that it’s wonderful and a joy to create new ideas and stories and concepts and bring them to life. Two is I get to perform with some of my best friends who are family. I also enjoy love and support for the audience.

What do you do when you’re not burlesquing?
Craft new ideas and projects.

Trick or Treat? Please elaborate.
Treat. I like my treats and they come in many forms.

Treat yourself to Chardonnay LaTease and the rest of our tricky lineup at The Triad on October 29. Tickets.

Hello friends and lovers.

We femmes are big on inner sparkle, but what enhances inner sparkle more than silky freshwater pearls or a sparkly topaz cocktail ring? How about a sensuous gold and onyx cuff bracelet? Well, don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered. On 10/26, LFF is teaming up with jewelry designer Patty Tobin for a special evening that celebrates all things glittery and fun.

Toute les femmes will gather our sequins and boas and head down to Patty’s charming Chelsea boutique for a burlesque-themed jewelry event to raise money for a veeerrrrrrrrrry good cause: Pets for Vets/NYC-LI. This amazing organization matches up shelter dogs with wounded military vets. What better way to spend an evening?

In addition to donating a percentage of her sales to Pets for Vets, Patty will also be raffling off a piece of jewelry (estimated worth ~$300), proceeds of which will also go to the org. OMG, right?

Meanwhile, Les Femmes will be on hand to show you step-by-step how we burlesque and to give you a sneak peak of our sexy, scary-in-a-good-way Halloween show. There will also be other special surprises that you will just have to show up to see.

There will be bubbly of course, and other light refreshments. There is no cover charge, but space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot ASAP. I’m telling you, this is going to be the event of the season. Well, at least until our Halloween show on Sat. 10/29.

xoxo,
HK
