So often Valentine’s Day centers around giving love to others, but this year a combination event sponsored by The Ruth Ellis Center and Queen of Cups Burlesque flips that idea on its head. The Burlesque: Love Yourself True inaugural event happening this Feb. 14 at The Motown Mansion encourages everyone, and especially women, to take time to love themselves.
“Mark your calendars for what we know will be one of the most talked-about events of the year! Burlesque: Love Yourself True presented by Bad Bunni Life, is a one-of-a-kind event produced by women, for women – with all proceeds benefiting Kofi House: The Center for Queer & Lesbian Women and Girls, a core program of the Ruth Ellis Center,” wrote event organizers.
Featured at this 21-and-up night will be burlesque performers Gala Delicious, Caffeyne Luv, Eartha Kitten, Mila DeLuna, Lottie Ellington and will be emceed by Dottie Monroe. Guests can also expect gogo dancers, a live DJ and more. Whatever one’s interest, above all, organizers made sure to emphasize that love and inclusion are the main drivers in the upcoming evening.
“While the emphasis of this event is focused on creating a safe space for queer & lesbian women and allies this Valentine’s Day, all allies, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, are welcome to attend,” organizers said.
