“Eat Your Hart Out: a Fat Burlesque Revue,” a Haus of Hart event, is Friday, April 27 at 8 p.m. at the Black Cat (1811 14th St., N.W.).
The event will celebrate “fat, thick and curvy folks” and feature burlesque performs from all over the country. D.C.’s own Ophelia Hart, a 2017 Best of Gay D.C. Blade readers’ poll winner, will headline.
In addition to live performance, the event will feature vendors with products such as pasties and paintings, cosmetics, waist beads and more. There will also be a raffle. Haus of Hart provides “high quality” entertainment while “creating an intentional safe space for fat performers who exist at the intersection of various marginalized identities.” Some are LGBT.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $17 at the door. VIP tickets are $25. Search for the event on ticketfly.com for tickets.
