We are the Liberace Foundation Team in Las Vegas. Ask us anything about Liberace, the Liberace Museum Collection, his Legacy, and Las Vegas History!

Liberace was the Las Vegas entertainer and virtuoso pianist who was famous for his outrageous costumes, cars, jewels and flamboyant personality. His live shows were a sensation from the 1950s through the 1980s when he made $300,000 per week performing at the Las Vegas Hilton. The performances revolutionized modern live entertainment and earned him the title, “Mr. Showmanship.”

Liberace was also known for his generosity and goodwill. In 1976 he founded The Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts to support aspiring artists pursue their studies and careers. After his death, he left his fortune and collection of costumes, cars, pianos, jewels and antiques to his Foundation. The Liberace Foundation to date has given nearly $6 million in scholarship assistance to over 2,700 students from 120 different universities and schools. The Liberace Foundation was in charge of running the famed Liberace Museum, where his collection was housed for over 30 years, until its closure in 2010.

The Liberace Foundation is reorganized and opening new exhibitions where guests can see his amazing items again. Right now we are raising funds to help support people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to improve their lives through the Opportunity Village music program as the first OVIP Liberace Scholars. Visit liberace.org and consider supporting our scholarship fund!

Our team currently consists of recent UNLV History and Business graduates. We have been reaccessioning, organizing, handling and moving a VERY large collection over the past two years all while fundraising and promoting Mr. Showmanship. Ask us anything about Liberace, his collection, handling museum artifacts, and Las Vegas history!

I am a 35 year old straight male and I enjoy watching Liberace concert videos.

[Light]: Casual confessions

Now, before you downvote me, keep in mind that there aren't many Liberace fans out there. So it's not like I can just confide with "the gang".

Most of this epic performer's fanbase were old women in the 70s who have since passed away. To be a 35 year old man who enjoys watching Mr Shomanship play classical music "without the boring bits" is mocking material in this day and age.

I know it seems stupid compared to some of the confessions, but I can't possibly tell my friends, and especially my wife. Just watch the guy perform sometime. You'll see what I mean. He blends entertainment and concert together like no one today; completely free of ego and arrogance. He's a genuine performer like no other.

From someone who was the highest earning performer of his era (no bullshit), he has fallen into the "Are... are you serious? You listen to that?" category.

Sigh...

Some guys have porn stashes, others lovers on the side... me? I have a folder with Liberace concert videos.
