Queer Burlesque History and Archives

La Chica Boom.
“Queer Chicana Starlet Chica Boom organizes with communities of color to destabilize white heteropatriarchy by day and by night she seduces audiences with her witty ethnic drag. This El Paso/Juarez bordertown bruja has been weaving her cultural, political and sexual identity through alternative dance, theatre, performance art, burlesque, clowning and street performance across North America. Chica Boom’s provocative posturing shakes and breaks the mold of submissive mestiza. Her sexual and cultural hybridism gives voice to an intentional revolutionary style of performance that depicts her multiplicity of consciousness as a fierce queer femme/macha, Chicana organizer and performer. She is the founder of Kaleidoscope, An Annual National People of Color Cabaret and currently organizes with  INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence.
