Living Legend Award Recipients

The Burlesque Hall of Fame is committed to preserving, sharing, celebrating, and inspiring the art of burlesque. That commitment builds on our history in part by honoring the sparkly pioneers of our past: The living legends of burlesque.

The Living Legend Award recognizes burlesque performers who created distinguished careers for themselves during burlesque’s heyday (before 1975) and continue to distinguish themselves through their involvement in today’s burlesque community, assuring the continued growth of burlesque as an artform.

Please join us in honoring these determined, powerful, generous Living Legends:
