Directed by Jennie Livingston | 1990

With Carmen and Brooke, André Christian, Dorian Corey

This groundbreaking documentary celebrates New York’s gay costume ball subculture, where black and Hispanic men got decked out, strutted their stuff, and vogued to win prizes in categories such as "realness," "evening wear," "executive wear," and "bangee." This heartbreaking, entertaining camp chronicle of a marginalized community bringing to life roles from which they are excluded in a heterosexist world, won the Grand Jury Prize at the 1990 Sundance Film Festival.
