With categories including Urban Street Wear, Transman Face and Prettyboy Realness, performers in the black gay ballroom scene worked their best moves for a panel of tough judges and even tougher crowd on Sunday.
The competition came as part of the 2nd Annual Youth Ballroom Awards from Evolution Project, an effort to recognize up-and-coming talent in the ballroom culture. Think glam mixed with pop culture splashed with some real-world, Atlanta twists. Or just watch “Paris Is Burning.”
