NYBF Final Night: The Golden Pasties

gender, photojournalism

Last night was the final night of the 2008 New York Burlesque Festival, ending with the Golden Pasty awards. My favorite act of the night? Darlinda Just Darlinda closed the show, shimmying her way out of a star-spangled dress only to pull a photograph of Sarah Palin out of, um, a body cavity.


She subsequently ripped up the pic. If that’s not representative of New York burlesque, I honestly don’t know what is.
