Paris Is Burning (1990)

A chronicle of New York City's drag scene in the 1980s, focusing on balls, voguing and the ambitions and dreams of those who gave the era its warmth and vitality.


Highly recommended look into the 1980's Harlem gay, Black and Hispanic underground ball scene. The creation of "vouging."
