::: Ball Culture: Learn it, Love it, Respect it. :::
Balls are an intentional space for queer and trans people of color. You may know about Vogue from Madonna, but it has roots in the historically marginalised urban black and Latino gay and trans communities. If you are not from this community - you are a white or straight ally - please be mindful of the space you take up. Do not push to the front to take photos or videos, do not stand in the way of dancers or house members. If you would like to participate, make sure you understand completely what each category means before entering.Any racist, classist, sexist, homophobic, and/or transphobic behavior will not be tolerated. If your behavior is found to be disruptive, you will be asked to leave.
As a white or straight ally, the best way you can show your support and appreciation for ball culture is by buying drinks at the bar. By patronizing the bar, you make it possible for our venue to continue providing space to cultures like this.
