Many of us are guilty of stepping off stage and immediately lamenting to the nearest person everything that went wrong in our choreography. This is a session for group catharsis: come prepped with your one most cringe worthy stage whoopsie and realize that you’re in the best of company.

Moderated by Sgt Die Wies, this is a 90 minute, dedicated session for attendees to connect with other queer, trans, black, indigenous and people of color (QTPoC & BIPoC), together with those internationals with english as a second language (ESL), who want to connect into the world’s biggest glitter reunion. The event is structured caucus-style with a couple topic changes through the session, to allow people the opportunity to establish connections with the different groups whom they most identify with. Discuss the common challenges faced by everyone, regardless of location and identity, and ways to succeed on the global stage.

Sometimes we are just blessed with amazing yet useless superpowers. Are you freakishly bendy? Can you solve a Rubix cube in under a minute? Perhaps you can recite Shakespeare flawlessly… Come for a couple hours of light-hearted fun, and wear whatever the hell you want (did someone say ‘caftans’?) as we toast the end of the inaugural Virtual Burlesque Hall of Fame. Share your favorite moment from the last month as we wind up and look towards the day we can sachay out of the Orleans together, tired but full of glittery love.
