Raven: the black prince of burlesque

“I’ve been called a “faggot”, a “whore”, a “bitch”. I’ve been told to “take it off you slut”. Some guy even tried to push me off the stage. That incident was actually quite entertaining though because I pushed him right back! He fell off the stage and was escorted out.”
