'We're not waiting for others' approval or told it's our time. We're representing ourselves...' — This burlesque group uses performance art to send political messages and celebrate queer feminism. bRass, known as brown radical ass burlesque, is a queer, colored dance group dedicated to celebrating bodies, feminism, and women. In a time where women's rights, bodies, and lifestyles are still highly criticized, this group of women decided to take a stand through dance. 'Here, we celebrate bodies, we don't shame them, we don't enact violence on them.' Hear from group founder Una Osato who goes by the stage name Exhotic Other and Norms, on what her burlesque group means to her, how it came to be, and her hopes for bRass' future. Learn more about the burlesque scene and bRass on this episode of NowThis Entertainment's SEEN where we interview group founder Una Osato. #bRass #UnaOsato #burlesque #performanceart #SEEN This video "How bRass Burlesque is Taking the Power Back for Queer Women of Color", first appeared on https://nowthisnews.com.
