Burlesque Boston was created by a group of local performers and producers as a way to foster community among local artists. We felt that the Boston burlesque community was already collaborating together so strongly and we wanted to provide a visible platform to bring everyone together. Below you'll find a list of ideals that we believe the Boston burlesque community stands on.

Promoting community and a culture of inclusion and empowerment
Promoting and showcasing the art of performers of all: genders, races, nationalities, backgrounds, religions, bodies, sexual orientation, ability/disability
Fostering a safe and accountable community
Creating a safe space for performers to communicate with one another in a non-competitive environment
Creating a central location for information/resources/promotion for the local burlesque community and its supporters
Building a foundation of respect, honesty, accountability, and transparency
