I am the way into the city of woe,
I am the way into eternal pain,
I am the way to go among the lost.

Justice caused my high architect to move,
Divine omnipotence created me,
The highest wisdom, and the primal love.

Before me there were no created things
But those that last forever—as do I.
Abandon all hope you who enter here.”
       ― Dante Alighieri, Inferno

Burlesque for me is the other part of me where you just want to dress up and do what the other society says you can’t do. For me, it’s liberating. It’s total freedom. I can express myself how I want to express myself.
