In this salute to Queer Pride, HyperGender Burlesque will bring you some beloved burlesqueers who will excite you, shock and make you feel at home among the strange, the bizarre and the campy. Following the Dyke March and before the Pride Parade what a better way to warm up for the all night debauchery but with help of sexy, naked queers.
Gay marriage debate has been going on for a while now and has queers split - do we fight for this antiquated institution or do we embrace the fact that we shall always be deemed "different"? Refusing to jump in the middle of the debate HyperGender raises another question - if almost half of all marriages end up in a divorce, why don't we have right to a divorce?
This show is a celebration of an amicable separation and it is the final show for our beloved N as HyperGender's co-host. Come bid her well on her journey to new and unexplored lands and a very happy birthday! Make sure to have a drink or two and save some room for cake. Be ready to be adopted by our dysfunctional family.

About the Company: HyperGender Burlesque
HyperGender began with a hope and a dream....and on Saturday April 14th 2007...that dream became a reality. As burlesque is getting more and more mainstreamed and as "post" is new "neo" we are proud to be the first post-neo-burlesque show. Two years after its conception HyperGender Burlesque is one of the leading monthly reviews and has gained a reputation for providing experimental and thought provoking entertainment.
HyperGender's mission is to titillate you, taunt you and tease you with a different variety of political and performance art. This is not your average burlesque show as it features video, drag, and performance art.
We are a monthly THEME review that features new and established burlesque performers, videographers, poets, sideshow artists and the pulse of NYC's underground artist community. Our themes range from Shakespeare, masturbation and the ever famed Seven Deadly Sins.
HyperGender is housed at historic WOW Cafe Theatre in the heart of NYC's East Village. The show is rated NC-17 for full frontal nudity and other things that bump in the night. We are daring for a reason, provocative because we have to....we want to show the NYC is still raw, edgy and beautiful all at the same time. This is a direct answer to Disneyfication of New York City.
A big reason for performers to come to us is our willingness and ability to offer complete creative freedom in a safe environment. This allows a free platform for exchange of ideas with no limits and boundaries. HyperGender encourages acts that are controversial, smart, and most importantly, ART! We strive to create this each and every month.
