Each year Broadway’s best spice up Pride month with Broadway Bares, a night of burlesque benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Last year the event raised $1,386,105 for services for people with AIDS and critical illnesses.
This year’s 25th Anniversary Broadway Bares: Top Bottoms of Burlesque takes place Sunday June 21 at 9:30 p.m. and midnight at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. You don’t have to be there to support a good cause: The performers are taking to social media to raise money in the annual stripathon.
We picked out a few of our faves to help get you in that generous mood.

See all the boys (and girls) raising money in the Stripathon.
Never heard of any of them, but Jim Cooney is nice.
Oh, hell no… I need to the “exits” on these Broadway shows… torsos snatched to the gods and lower bodies borrowed from crack addicts.
I always thought that “stripping” meant taking off your clothes. Apparently I was mistaken.
What’s with all the one hand behind the head pose?
Ryan Lyons can make my breakfast!
Love Broadway Bares. Such a fun show. Wish I could go to NYC this year for it.
Of all the people I follow on social media, I’m aware of two who are performing in Broadway Bares this year — and both were profiled in this article.
