I did burlesque consistently from on, and always with the desire for more. Yes, this has really happened. At first, I was told -- and thought -- we were going to watch dudes strip So I think establishing early on that I was to be taken as seriously as the rest and that I wasn't riding only on being short in turn led people to exploit me much less than I ever thought.

Would they fear someone, say, 6in shorter than them?

I know that, yes, I do get booked because of my height, but I use that opportunity to give people the unexpected when it comes to that.

The show had several burlesque acts in it and I fell in love with what I saw. I make a similar amount of money, get a similar amount of lap dances and merchandise sales. I also have always wanted to be an entertainer or dancer of some kind, and this does that in a very cool way. I just dove right in, put myself next to the best, and did my shows the way they did. Do it if you really want to perform and entertain. If I can't show the full range of my talent and feel like I'm setting myself up to be disrespected, I just don't do it.
