Lillian Bustle is a Burlesque performer, singer, MC, and public speaker/gleeful loudmouth about body positivity! Her recent TEDx talk, Stripping Away Negative Body Image, sheds light on the positive effect of Burlesque and visual diet on self-image, and has been shared by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Recent speaking engagements include SUNY New Paltz and BurlyCon as a panelist on the Beauty Standards and Burlesque panel. She currently produces and hosts Jersey City's premiere monthly Burlesque show, LiberTease, every 4th Wednesday at FM Restaurant & Lounge.
