“Some of us communicate with our bodies.” – Twysted, August 2017

When we talk about liberation for Black people, we cannot do so without engaging our bodies and other forms of dialoguing with each other. This ballroom event will be a celebration of Blackness and also serve as a transnational stage, where performers from across North America will come together and have dialogue with each other.

With celebrity judges including Pony Zion and the legendary Leiomy Maldonado, The Icon Michael Roberson Maasai Milan and commentator The Rocksocking Twysted Miyake Mugler!

With DJs Black Cat and Karim Olen Ash
