“The Problem You Wish You Had”

The sultry and seductive Brooklyn-based  burlesque performer whose sweet flirtations are coveted no matter where you land on the Kinsey Scale.

Growing up, Drag Queens were her prophets and Betty Rizzo was her god. Now in adulthood, Qualms has become the aggressively femme, black Barbie doll she fantasized about as a child.

With intention behind every action and nary a word spoken on stage, the “Queen of the Quiet Fuck You” uses sophisticated musicality to remove her clothing in a fashion so smoldering she can scandalize an audience with the calculated raise of an eyebrow.  Notorious for her teeny tiny G-strings and ineffable smile, Galore’s personal style of delicate movements and grandiose glamour fascinates onlookers to the edge of hysteria before providing a crescendo, a release, and permission to breathe once again.

Whether performing on the stage of grand theater, or on the floor an intimate local social club, nothing changes. Power. Poise. Unapologetic sexuality. No ifs, ands, or butts. And most assuredly, no Qualms.

Miss Galore was crowned the Queen of New Jersey Burlesque (2016) and is the former reigning Mx. Nobody (2017). She also earned the Hottest Freshman Award at the New York Burlesque Festival Golden Pastie Awards (2017). Most recently she was named MR(S) BIZARRE Bushwick in the preliminary rounds of the MR(S) BK pageant (2018) and took home the “Thirst Trapper Keeper” award at White Elephant Burlesque’s Silver Tusk Awards (2019).

Known for being fraternal twins and partners in pasties with Amuse Bouche, the pair co-kittens, gogo dances and occasionally performs under the moniker, #AmuseGalore. Qualms frequently works with the legendary burlesque company, Wasabassco and can be found sipping a drink and enjoying the show every month as the Resident Door Mistress at the Fuck You Revue.

An expert stage kitten, Qualms also teaches a workshop on the subtle art of the pick up.
