“I’m profoundly grateful to the Burlesque Hall of Fame and I’m forever changed because of this experience,” wrote 2019’s scholarship recipient, Precious Ephemera. “We are standing on the shoulders of giants and the view is spectacular.  We owe it to them to keep the burlesque flame burning bright and let their passion continue to live through us.”
