- Gay Desert Guide's Fun & Games Dept. and TheMenEvent.com present Women of the Moulin Rouge and Montmartre
- Come learn about the women dancers and singers who have made the Moulin Rouge the worldwide icon of racy entertainment from 1889 to today!
- What is the world’s most iconic nightclub? The one nightclub that is the subject of multiple musicals and movies? The Moulin Rouge, of course— set in Paris' most iconic Bohemian neighborhood, Montmartre. And what has been its attraction since it opened in 1889? Women dancers and singers, from the women on Toulouse-Lautrec's posters to Nicole Kidman's Satine! So come learn about the history of the women entertainers who seduced le tout Paris (and les USA too), from the day the CanCan was invented (at the Moulin Rouge of course) through great entertainers like Josephine Baker, Mistinguett, and Edith Piaf—the women who have sold Parisian sexiness to the world for over 100 years!
