Voguing at the Ball

Earle Bannister, a Baltimore tailor, talks to presenter Althea Grey-McKenzie about the history of voguing, a dance style that originated in the African American and Latino American LGBT ballroom communities of the 1980s. His words are accompanied by a performance of voguing by dancers from the House of Revlon.
