Program Description

About this event:

Join us at TCPL in June for a series of films showcasing the LGBTQIA+ community. The documentary Kiki dives back into the fierce world of voguing battles 25 years after Paris Is Burning introduced a larger audience to the Ballroom scene.

In the Kiki scene of NYC, where competition between Houses demands leadership, painstaking practice, and performances on point. A film collaboration between Kiki gatekeeper, Twiggy Pucci Garçon, and Swedish filmmaker Sara Jordenö, we’re granted exclusive access into this high stakes world, where tough competitions act as a gateway into the daily lives of LGBTQ youth of color in NYC. The new generation of ballroom youth use the motto, “Not About us Without Us”. Twiggy and Sara’s insider-outsider approach to their stories breathes fresh life into the representation of a marginalized community who demand visibility and real political power. 

Registration is appreciated but not required. Kiki is not rated.
