Big Gay Burlesque Show

Still tittering with excitement after their well-deserved win for Best Burlesque Troupe in the Current’s annual readers’ poll (which we seconded with a critic’s pick), the effervescent and body-positive Pastie Pops are revved up and ready to celebrate LGBT Pride with the latest edition of their Big Gay Burlesque Show. Hosted in the intimate new event space at Southtown’s recently relocated Sexology Institute, the summer sizzler combines classic burlesque, boylesque, drag and comedy routines performed by troupe regulars Jasper St. James, Mary Annette, Lucy Lips and Elle Du Jour — all dolled up in risqué getups “dripping in sequins, rhinestones, feathers and lots of glitter.” Emceed by always-amusing hostess Camille Toe, the evening promises to rise to the occasion of Pride via gay anthems (by the likes of Diana Ross, Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera), camp oddities like rapper/comic Wendy Ho’s drag queen favorite “Fuck Me,” numbers involving balloons and feather fans, a RuPaul’s Drag Race-inspired “lip sync for your life” competition and a runway walk contest (audience participation encouraged).
