The extraordinary Jacqueline Boxx has been dazzling stages with her brand of Miss Disa-burly-TEASE-- being recognized as one of the most visible disabled burlesque stars in North America.  A talent refusing to be novelty or tokenized, Jacqueline talks to Viktor Devonne about burlesque, before and after That Moment that changed her forever, competing for the Burlesque Hall of Fame, wheelchairs used in stagework for funzies, pushing back against authority, the difficult truth of  inaccessibility in nightlife, people saying the wrong thing, Lizzo, and the passion that has taken her to great heights, and stage lights across the country and beyond.
