Selby Quinn

Founder of YYC Burlesque Festival talks sexuality, politics, and her creative life

The incredible Selby Quinn, aka Ruby Demure, expresses and embraces her sexuality in her art.

Burlesque sits in a very unique spot in the art word by combining comedy, parody, and a risqué side to create powerful commentary on stage. On Village Radio this week, Quinn sits down with Dave Kelly to talk about the art of burlesque and the rapidly growing Calgary International Burlesque Festival.
