Going to the Ball

What makes New York so wonderful is the diversity and the culture. In New York you can always find your tribe and make a 'framily'.
Ball culture has been around since the twenties in New York. Madonna's (video) Vogue (directed by David Fincher) brought some of ball culture to the main stream. Ball culture continues to influence artists today. And collectives like Vogue Evolution aim to not only perform and entertain, but also educate.
My favorite artist is Leiomy"Mizrahi""Wonder Woman"Maldonado. I can't resist the Leiomy Lolly. You can find performances by Leiomy and other Ball performers at you www.tube.com and by clicking here.
