Drag. Pose. Vogue. Realness. Shade. Love. 

26 years ago, a poignant and exhilarating film of the then-still-burgeoning vogue ball lifestyle hit the screen scene and taught the world how to 'work'. Now, we bring it to you. Hard. 

Featuring live dance performance from New York's vogue legends and hottest newcomers. Stay with us late into the night as we open up the dance floor and invite you to show us what you're working with. 

This documentary by Jennie Livingston captures the competitive ball scene world of an 80s New York, a world of transformative glamour, beauty, and empowerment for the disenfranchised— a tradition that continues to this day. 


Everyone has their part to play in the game of life -- whether you’re a butch queen, a “realness girl” or a schoolboy, you better show up and let the world see what you’re working with. Hit the floor after the film. We will be giving away prizes and drinks for the best styles, looks and realness.

DRESS TO IMPRESS. Live it. Own it.
