About Us

The DC Gurly Show is DC’s longest running Queer Burlesque Troupe. Our mission is to foster an encouraging and supportive community of performers and fans in and around the Nation’s Capital. DCGS welcomes all shapes, sizes, colors, and orientations, and is an open, safe space for novice and seasoned performers to grow. We have been an active burlesque troupe in the DMV area for 11 years.

Each DC Gurly show consists of 6 – 8 solo Gurly performances and a group number. Please contact us if you are interested in booking the DC Gurly Show for private parties and events.
