One performer lost her voice at the top of the show, and the audience jumped in to help. Another brought out a whip covered in gold that glinted as she moved through her routine and got some in the crowd on their feet. A third  stepped out onto the stage and whipped out a tap dance number that had cheers coming from every direction. 

Those were just a few of the scenes Saturday night, as dozens of attendees filled the courtyard at 168 York St. Cafe for a "Burlesque Extravaganza," one of 25 events for PRIDE New Haven between last Monday and Sunday. Hosted by Dot Mitzvah with performances from Harley Foxx, Miss Cherry Jackson, Kendall Marie, and Leona Star, the night closed out a day of Pride celebrations on a high note. Photographer Linda-Cristal Young was there to capture it all.
