University Hall E107
Join us for a film on the 1980s seen through the eyes of NYC’s African American and Latinx Harlem drag ball scene, an intimate portrait of rival fashion “houses,” from fierce contests for trophies, to house mothers offering sustenance in a world rampant with homophobia, racism, AIDS, and poverty.

This musical powerhouse performance features an all-female ensemble, and explores the endurance, strength, and beauty of bold, Black, woman-led activism and artistry across the centuries.
