CELEBRATING NEW YORK CITY HOUSE BALLROOM SCENE


Published:

WHO:               Gerard H. Gaskin, Jack Mizrahi

WHAT:           W New York presents Legends, a month-long photographic exhibition and philanthropic initiative celebrating New York House Ballroom Legends and style culture over the past two decades. Curated by Gerard H. Gaskin, the exhibit will be open to both guests and locals and will feature photos from his upcoming award-winning book Legendary, recognized as one of the largest bodies of work dedicated to the evolution of the New York Ballroom scene. The exhibition will launch December 1st at W New York in honor of World Aids Day and in support of Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI), an organization providing social care for at-risk LGBT youth across New York City.

The Legends photo exhibition will take guests into a vital part of New York’s Ballroom scene, an underground community where gay and transgender men and women come together in high-spirited late-night pageants. A hidden culture that encourages individuals to flaunt and celebrate their vibrant personalities, house balls feature participants competing for trophies in categories based on costume, attitude, dance moves and ‘realness’. 

WHEN & WHERE:

December 1st – 31st 2013

The Living Room, W New York, 541 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10022
