The ballroom scene affirms the delightful intersection of my Black and Queer identities. Every time I leave a ball with an amazing performance competition, there is no doubting that we (radicalized LGBTQ+ folks) have community – even if there may be drama we are still fam.
The prize for the performance category was HUGE and there were state-by-state teams who were going hard. I’m so excited for the next ball I get to shoot – if I could make money shooting balls they would be the only events I shoot.
I also got to shoot my absolute favourite chanter – Kevin Jz Prodigy. He became my favourite chanter after the Cats Meow Chant on sound cloud. Check it out.
Like, I can’t. I simply cannot.
