On Tuesday I gave a talk on burlesque & feminism to Long Eaton WI for their branch birthday meeting!
After our talk. Against a backdrop of the formidable Rubyyy Jones I initiated a couple of the ladies into the burlesque sisterhood by teaching them the art of the glove tease. The remaining ladies at the event were schooled in burlesque audience etiquette and given a few shout outs to try on. They provided a hugely supportive and very audible audience for the first time glove teasers, with regulars shouts of ‘hell yeah!’ I even heard a few ‘awoogas’!
What a lovely group of ladies, what a lovely branch – and an amazing burlesque birthday cake! Very glad to chat with them #InspiringWomen all of them.
The ladies of Long Eaton WI seemed to enjoy my talk on burlesque & feminism. They also seemed to enjoy my fan props! pic.twitter.com/1NwEyNqpEV
