The Noire Challenge

This is a 21+ event An Opulent night of burlesque, beauty, and community support raising funds for The Noire Pageant, a Burlesque Pageant and Hall of Fame for POC performers, brought to you by the producers of Spoilers, Filth Element, and Fire and Tassels! As amazing as burlesque is, POC contributions have been consistently erased, whitewashing our histories. The Noire Pageant is changing this, and MurderApples Events plans to support them. "After years of being erased and overlooked from the burlesque history books, I decided to create my dynasty and celebrate my power. Burlesque Pageants have been around for decades, but there aren’t many Performers of Color who have been crowned or celebrated. I believe it’s time for a change. My mission is to promote glamour and to create opportunities for the POC burlesque community. I want to create a platform to help them become headliners, educators, and savvy entrepreneurs. I'm a proud burlesque queen who believes in protesting against ignorance and the limited celebration of people who look like me. I've made it my mission to showcase the beauty and opulence of brown skin. Glamour has many faces. Burlesque has many faces. History will not repeat itself.xoxo Perle NoireJoin us at Columbia City Theater on October 18th for burlesque performances, a live costume auction, and door prizes all to raise money to support Perle Noire's vision.
