Throughout the 1980s the LGBTQ African American and Latino American communities of New York City founded Houses which equalled family like support networks. They collectively cared for each other emotionally and creatively when they found themselves ostracised by biological family and friends due to them being different.
As an antidote to their struggles within immensely difficult lives they held regular events know as Vogue Ball’s which allowed them as minority groups to forget about their problems, connect with each other and dress-up to enter fashion and dance competitions.
For Leeds Pride 2019 this is exactly what we’re providing for our Beautiful Leeds Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) LGBTQ community because despite matters being much improved We can still feel alone and disconnected from our family, friends and community.
So come & celebrate being you, dress up and enjoy our free reception of fabulous food and drink then enter 1 of 5 Categories which are STYLE, Street-Wear Queens & Kings, Fierce, Realness & Beautiful. There is no dress-code, you can do High-Street, High End, Home Made, Brand New, Vintage or anything in-between. Just be ready to walk Your Catwalk!
Open to all our Community and Allies to attend as audience members & give support too.
MC/DJ Jordan has the music on lock so BAME LGBTQ Fam Be the Stars of The Show & Shine Bright.
