Always wanted to be a patron of the arts, but didn’t know how to beyond tipping at shows?
The Patreon platform is allowing you to do exactly that, and more and more Burlesque performers are taking advantage of it.
In the last few month, two of our favorites have signed up as well.
Lux LaCroix says:
“I am here on Patreon to raise money for my next Performance Art piece I Am Not Your Mammy, Get Off My Tit examining America’s love / hate relationship with Black women. It’s going to be a heavy piece, much in the same tone of my last opus Who Will Survive In America but, raising money does not have to be so serious! When you join me on my quest I will be sure to entertain you with behind the scenes photos, videos, blogs, showing you all of the things that make my crazy world go round and trust me it’s quite the wild and crazy ride. I hope you join me!”
Nina La Voix says:
“In an era where creatives are cast aside more than ever before, sometimes my art has to wait while I hustle to pay bills in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Patreon allows a symbiotic relationship between artist and audience so that performers like to me can continue to grow while my supporters enjoy exclusive rewards. With your help, I’ll be able to practice more, produce faster, and to continue to create my art in bigger and better ways! As I advance, I’ll be able to coach more people to grow stronger in their bodies, as well as creating art that will inspire many to appreciate themselves in a deeper way as well.”
If you believe in their art, pledge your support to these ladies. Other performers we know of on Patreon include Coco Ono, Sydni Deveraux, Perle Noire, Mary Cyn, Logan Laveau, Dangrrr Doll and Stella Chuu.
