Thank You Pose!

Just finished binge watching season two of Pose. PERFECTION! The show is a spinoff of the documentary Paris Is Burning, chronicling the lives of participants in ball culture. Thank you to the exquisite women above for adding merriment, love and color to this world. Trans lives matter. Their voices are necessary and if you don’t agree, it cost zero dollars to mind your business. Taking someone’s life, because you don’t condone their choices is abhorrent. Have you judged or tried to understand? Why or why not? What book, documentary or source has enlightened you to their perspective? Via: Innractions

De-Conditioning: Paris Is Burning

I would like to be a spoiled, rich white girl, they get what they want.
Venus Extravaganza

A two for one special; in honor of The Black Lives Matter Movement and Pride Month, watch Paris Is Burning. A timeless, poignant documentary that chronicles ball culture, which birthed Voguing . The balls were created in reaction to systemic financial disparities between blacks and whites. As Venus from house Extravaganza stated, as implied throughout much of the film, as the world turned, being white is the best way to attain wealth. Screaming black is beautiful, the creation of the black panthers, are reactions of beating ‘white power’ into the world by force. To counter the hate you give, we have movements and mottos and more. White power has resulted in oppression and hate globally, that’s why it’s vile. Via: Cinephile IG
