Live photos: Brown Girls Burlesque

On April 30, the Brown Girls Burlesque troupe took control of Bowery Poetry Club for a show named Raunch and Revolution. As you might expect from the title, the presentation was politically charged, exploring themes of race, gender, imperialism, environmental issues and more. Oh, yeah—there were lots of women taking off their clothes as well. And here are the pictures to prove it! (Photographs: Syd London)
