To walk and to dance with confidence. Our Annual Vogue Ball is an expression of one of our core beliefs that we, as an organization and as a community, not only feel safe but be celebrated. To walk and dance while the world cheers us on. The Vogue competition is a cultural expression of our community. Originating in the 1980’s and rising from the Harlem Ballrooms of the 1960’s, Voguing is a global phenomenon and continues to evolve both stylistically and demographically.
