2016 Texas Queerlesque Festival
The red carpet rolls out as burlesque stars, prestigious producers, and fabulous fans join together to celebrate queer burlesque heritage with this inaugural event. Queerlesque is the space where burlesque and cabaret-style performing arts meet the wild, vibrant, culturally rich Queer community.
The festival’s aim is to “unify, celebrate, and elevate,” in order to represent a community that is both diverse and proud. The four-day festival will showcase Texas’ premiere performers in two mainstage shows, with guest performers from across the country.
Performance styles featured in the festival include burlesque and drag stars, aerialists, performance troupes, and fusion bellydancing. The festival also features eight workshops, five parties, four networking events, and a large vending area.
