A special thank you to Dansens Hus and Danscentrum Stockholm for supporting the event and ballroom community.
What is Ballroom?
Ballroom was created by black and latin trans women back in Harlem, New York at the late 1960s, due to racism they faced within the white pageant scene. Ballroom is an underground subculture by and for the BIPOC LGBTQ+ community and it is a competition where participants walk different categories in beauty, sex, fashion and performance.
If you are not from the community, please be mindful of the space you take. If you would like to walk/participate, learn and study the categories beforehand. If you have any questions, please ask the organizer and they will help you!
"The kiki scene originated from social gatherings—"kikis"—at health outreach organizations, such as the Gay Men's Health Crisis and Hetrick-Martin Institute, where members of the ballroom community could get together to socialize and practice for the mainstream balls, as well as get connected to HIV prevention services, testing and counseling. Through these kiki functions, they started to develop their own separate system of houses and balls, which mirror the structure of those in the mainstream ballroom scene. Today the kiki scene provides a place for younger members of the ballroom scene to gain exposure, competition and leadership experience, all against a continued backdrop of safe-sex messaging" - The Fader, 2014 https://www.thefader.com/2014/11/13/kiki-ball-photo-essay
