Kiki

Wednesday, March 1 - Thursday, April 6, 2017

25 years after Paris is Burning introduced vogueing to the world, KIKI revisits NYC’s thriving underground ballroom scene. It’s a larger-than-life world in which LGBTQ youths of color are empowered by staging elaborate dance competitions to showcase dynamic choreography, fabulous costumes and fierce attitude. With intimate access to the scene, the film goes beyond the glamour of the balls, spotlighting a safe haven that offers acceptance, support and community to struggling, at-risk queer black and Latino young people.
