What is ballroom?
The underground ballroom scene has it roots as far back as to the 1920 in Harlem, New York, and was created by the Black and Latin Trans women and Drags, as a new safe space due to racism they faced within the white pageant scene.
It evolved into many new categories and became not only a space for trans women of color to enjoy the safeties of community but of all queer people of color to create and express what was not allowed at the time to express in the public.
While the community is not as segregated as it used to be, we remind you that the space was created and are ruled by people of color, and we remind you that the underground ballroom scene will not accept any types of racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, body shaming or any types of discrimination.
Ballroom welcomes everyone and respects everyone, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, body, sex or status.
Ballroom is a place of love, unity, creativity and mutual respect.
If you are not a person of color and/or person of queer experience, we would like to reinstate that you are a guest within the ballroom community and should follow rules as everyone else.
Please be mindful of the space you take as a guest, and you will be welcomed with open arms.
