Burlesque Legends Roundtable Discussion

Roundtable Recording:  

Panel Description: Highlighting and caring for our Burlesque Legends is a concern of the community at large and a number of fantastic organizations focus on this work. From preservation of history and legacy to education to care and support of our living Legends, these organizations are on the ground working. Join representatives of these organizations, Legends themselves, and people on the front lines of Legend support to learn more about what work is happening and examine what more our community could do. We hope this discussion will continue into future BurlyCon and other burlesque events and natural calls to action will bloom.

In this very brief hour, the discussions will center around the following topics:

1. How do the different pillars in the Burlesque industry work with and support Burlesque legends? Example: BHOF, BurlyCon, BurlyCares, Others?

2. Based on the answers to #1, what gaps are there in supporting legends as artists and as part of our legacies/families?

3. Let's look at support in different contexts. For example, practical needs could be an escort at events such as BHOF / BurlyCon. Ongoing community support could be locally to legends between events to crisis support during illness, community resources and supporting as escorts ongoing, building alliances with already existing local legend support infrastructures, travel needs, regular contact initiatives such as holiday cards, etc. We should also consider the international complexities of support.

4. Elephant in the room...some of them have financial needs - should and can we be doing something/more to help them in their twilight years?
