Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s the fiercest queen of the Ball? That was the question asked on the night of Saturday, May 21st. Presented by the Hudson Pride Connections Center (HPCC), the first ever Vogue Ball debuted at Art House Productions. The Theater of Art House was transformed into a runway fit for Fashion Week, but there was no fashion shows this eventing. No, this runway was strictly for contestants to strut, sashay, slay, and vogue their way up and down the aisle for the panel of judges to win one of the coveted trophies. And let me tell you, the competition was fierce enough to make even RuPaul proud.

“I think it’s a great day for civil rights,” Fulop said. “We couldn’t be more excited.”
The nation’s high court ruled 5-4 that states cannot ban gay marriage, in a decision released this morning. Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority, said the reasons marriage is “fundamental” under the U.S. Constitution “apply with equal force to same-sex couples.”
Elizabeth Schedl, of Hudson Pride Connections Center, emailed a statement that included five exclamation points. The LGBT group is based in Jersey City.
“Today marks one of the greatest days in history for our community,” said Elizabeth Schedl, of Hudson Pride Connections Center in Jersey City. “We are thrilled that the Supreme Court values the importance of marriage equality and understands how everyone deserves these rights.”
