The global Covid-19 crisis has sent the burlesque community into a tailspin, with countless shows cancelled and many of us in financial difficulty.
But you – dear reader – can help. Now is the time to give back to the burlesque professionals who have provided so much pleasure, inspiration and entertainment. And we encourage peers to take this opportunity to learn from and support each other too.
We have compiled a list of services, products, classes, fan accounts, and things to entertain you while we all lock down and stay safe.
Burlesquers: If you want to be added, please email email@example.com with your name, a brief description and a full, working URL. Please don’t chase up – new links will be added in batches – this is a one woman effort! HM.
