Ballroom originated in the trans and racialised communities, and celebrates all identities. Vinii Revlon, a voguing legend, immerses us in this flamboyant culture, and honours the bodies that fight relentlessly for their rights.

With its stylised outfits, fluttery hands and eye-popping death drops, voguing is the most flamboyant articulation of the ballroom scene. But this culture, though now widely featured on TV, has its roots in the exclusion experienced by black trans women banned from beauty contests. And so, in 1980s New York, these drag queens set up their own contests and dances – imitating poses from the pages of Vogue magazine. They also provided a roof for young people who were discriminated against because of their gender expression and cast out on the street, thus forming substitute families called “houses”. Voguing legend Vinii Revlon here devises a full immersion in this culture, reminding us who invented it and for whom. Workshops, talks and screenings will accompany a ball showcasing those who, even today, must still fight for their rights. Rebellious and fired up, houses and participants will face off to win trophies, fists held high.
