Male dancer and stripper Daniel Ambo prepares himself backstage for his performance in the MenX male erotic show during the ‘Sinners Ball’ at Gilligans nightclub in Cairns Australia - an image I made whilst working on the ’stills’ for a film entitled “Burlesque Blokes: Fighting for Recognition as a Male Erotic Performer in Australia”. The story tells of a Melbourne based male performance ‘Burlesque’ group MenXclusive as they strip and interact with their young seductively clad female audience. A fascinating insight into a contemporary sub-culture.
