"Bringing Queen City [Burlesque Festival] to life had a lot to do with wanting to apply what I had learned from being on the road. I volunteered at the Burlesque Hall of Fame for several years in a row as a tech assistant; I've volunteered at the Vancouver Burlesque Festival a few years in a row as well, and I've performed there; many of my friends are producers. It was really important to me to elevate what I was seeing, or what I wanted to bring to the table, and really offer exponential and incredible, sensational art for not only for [other burlesque performers] but obviously for the...

WEBurlesque the Podcast

"When it comes to my work, I'm not going to make stuff that's so esoteric and so personal and emotional that no one can access it; that's not entertainment... I've tried doing pieces where I was very weird and abstract and it's not satisfying. It's very satisfying if you can get somebody hooked in, if you can challenge somebody's thoughts about what what burlesque is; I think that's great. But I really can't get down with 'Well this is my art and these are my feelings and I'm just going to explode all over the stage and you're just going to have to watch'' I just don't think that that's...

"I guess I've always been like a champion for the misfits, those who just don't belong; whatever that is. And I hope that people who see our show will feel that they can do it too, that they can take chances, that they can be naked; they don't have to hate their bodies just because society tells them [to.]... I just want people to smile, to feel good."

"I just want to hopefully help end erasure in our scene and for everyone to have a moment of self-discovery and self-ideology and a moment of 'let me check myself, let me go ahead and try to go ahead and learn about this' and then spread that knowledge to somebody else."

Telling tales from the San Francisco strip club to the legendary goat ranch years of Exotic World to the current incarnation of Burlesque Hall of Fame (and its spectacular Weekender), Desiré shares with Viktor thoughts on bridging the gap between historical burlesque and its present...
