Voguing = freedom! The heart of the colorful and lively Ballroomscene, are the ‘Houses’. Even 25 years after Paris is Burning they prove to be essential in taking up young, sometimes homeless, LGBTQ-youths in their families, and of the streets. Through dance, love, fierceness and respect, they create and claim their place in this world. Fierce, fierce, fierce!
