This week - the dramatic conclusion to epic started last week! The “How To Burlesque Panel” concludes with Victoria Belmont,Murder Nurse, Allen Ryde, and Esmerelda May using Mr. E as a “man-prop” and then handing him off to some eager students. It’s “How To Burlesque Part 2 - Audience Participation Harder”!
This episode’s footage was shot at the 2013 Pennsylvania Burlesque Festival in Philadelphia, PA, and features London’s own Violet Blaze! This lovely lass took the top prize at Burlesque Idol 2012 and was the first runner-up at the afore-mentioned PA Burlesque Fest! This week, we’re proud to bring our friends to your attention as Violet Blaze ”reciprocates” your love and affections as Matron “Mama” Morton from Chicago!
At Cosplay Burlesque, we do not normally take political positions. Burlesque is sexy fun, and we don’t want to taint that wonderful cheese pizza of boobs, butts, and pasties with anchovies (some people love them, some hate ‘em).
But today, we are standing in solidarity our with LGBT friends, family, and PERFORMERS. This is why for the period that the US Supreme Court is hearing arguments regarding the Defense of Marriage Act, Cosplay Burlesque will proudly use the Marriage Equality Sign as our avatar.
125 years ago, Dr. A/Vsian would not have been allowed to marry Victoria Belmont. 75 years ago, Murder Nurse would not have been allowed to marry Denzel Washington. Today, many people are trying to deny Allen Ryde the right to marry Mr. E, if they so chose to do.
Denying other people’s happiness - that’s the start of defining “wrong” and at the heart of bullying. DOMA is definitely wrong and is a good example of bullying by law.
Consenting adults should be able to marry. The government should have no say in it and should not enable the denial of benefits/rights based on sexual orientation. We support the right to equal marriage at Cosplay Burlesque, and we thank you for taking the time to read this.
