21st Century Burlesque Magazine is pleased to present the 12th Burlesque TOP 50 – the 50 most influential burlesque industry figures of 2020, voted for by thousands of burlesque peers and fans worldwide.
With live entertainment shut down worldwide for much of the year, and artists often at the back of the queue for financial aid, it’s been easy to feel forgotten and irrelevant.
Some of us have made the necessary and understandable decision to take shelter, care for loved ones, and try to stay afloat emotionally and economically. Others have found ways to perform offstage, create innovative online experiences, rally their peers and fans, and support their communities.
We’re still here – and there’s still so much to celebrate. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative 2021.
