#DoBoth returns December 3 at 7PM, hosted by Flirt Vonnegut. Enjoy a delightful, raucous, AND educational night of lightning Tedx-style lectures followed by steamy burlesque performances, featuring:

 Jaeda, “Untangling the Secrets of the Human Hair Business”

Jaeda is a professional bellydancer and burlesque artist based in the Philadelphia area. She has studied Middle Eastern dance for almost 15 years, and has been in the burlesque scene for 5 years. Jaeda has been “doing both” her entire life – from winning spelling bees and running the neighborhood dance team as a child, to being a bellydancer that graduated with honors from an Ivy League school. Her 22-year career in marketing serves her well in her “second job” of producing/co-producing several shows, including Dark Side Burlesque, Melangerie, Golden Tassel Jawns, and Belly Dancers Fight for Air.


Shay Au Lait, “Developing Relationships to Boundaries”

Equal parts playfully innocent and dangerously kinky, Shay Au Lait is a provocative, intoxicating Sorcerer originally hailing from the Windy City. Shay of SpeakEasy Noir Burlesque and Siren Pack Productions is a producer, performer, and instructor specializing in burlesque, theatre, aerial, pole dance, BDSM, and go-go through immersive & transformative experiences. Affectionally known as the Typhoon of Temptation and the Ba-Donka-Monk of SlutChurch, Shay is a visceral and electric force to be reckoned with known for spiraling erotic energy into breathtaking ceremonies and rituals on stage.

Selene Rose, “The Hidden Feminism of Romance Novels”

Selene Rose is a flower that blooms under moonlight. She entrances audiences with her sultry mix of dance, theater, and comedy. She’s the sultan of sass and with a look, she’ll fly you to the moon and back.





HoneyTree EvilEye, “History of Psychiatric Diagnoses”

HoneyTree EvilEye is one of the most prolific burlesque producers and performers in Philadelphia, the creator of popular and long-running shows like SlutChurch, Get You a Babe Who Can Do Both, Honeygasm and more.

Art that acts as Social Commentary

The artform of cartooning celebrates diversity, liberty, and inclusion

As a companion piece to the Graphic Content Exhibition, the NLM has brought back select pieces from Caretoons, a popular annual exhibition/competition that ran from 2005-2010. Through drawings submitted by children, as well as amateur and professional artists from around the world, the images in Caretoons grapple with contemporary issues through the approachable lens of cartoons and graphic art.

Support the Next Generation of Heroes

Each school year, we send NLM educators directly into Philadelphia’s most underserved schools to teach students critical leadership skills, such as courage, integrity, responsibility, respect, and most important, empathy. We show them that they have the power through their First Amendment Rights to use these skills to make positive changes in their school and community.

Help us continue to bring this program to as many students as possible.
