First, let me set something straight right now. I ain’t gay.
During my Happy Hour DJ gig at The Peacock Room, Michael Pierre asked me to photograph his Burlyesque show, an all male burlesque event.
I didn’t have my Canon Rebel at the time. Instead, I used the photo option on my Toshiba camcorder.
A mixture of pro and amateur dancers, Burlyesque was a charity event for Harbor House, an organization helping domestic abuse victims.
As he danced, he allowed women to pop his balloons.
Mr. Pierre. Recreating the ear-cutting scene from the movie Reservoir Dogs, he even had Stealers Wheel’s “Stuck in the Middle with You” playing.
