This showcase is a fusion of gender-bending Boylesque and Burlesque performance pieces by some of your favourite burly artistes. By pushing the envelope of gender conformity, fashion and human spectacle through expression of elaborate, glamorous and often satirical performance art forms, our performers play on topics that are often considered taboo through splendid displays of diversity and transformation.

“Sometimes, I feel sexy in a slinky dress and lipstick. Sometimes, I feel handsome in a button down and tie. Sometimes, I wear ties with skirts, corsets and cufflinks. I am a gender-bender, and I can bend gender norms to fit my conception of who I am!” – Anonymous

4 years ago, King St.Fox started playing with the idea of creating a platform within a platform for performers like himself to express their creativity through the form of gender play. Burlesque had already opened doors to diversity within its art form, but a need for a Gender Bender stage become even more important to King St.Fox. Gender is not expressive but performative which allows a space to be created for breaking boundaries; and that's exactly what you can expect to see at a Gender Bender show.
