Ya know...that just got me thinking about one of the burlesque shows I worked on. This one had a real diverse spread of people..from pin-up types to drag queens to people with obvious disabilities performing...It was a long standing troupe that had a fairly large following of freaks and misfits (affectionately self-labeled by the fans). I just loved the open loving atmosphere those shows had. There really was a sense of community and a place for people who had a harder time finding places like that. That was a great place for people to come out of isolation. I hope to get to perform with them again.
