2 Cool 4 School Vouge Night

September 15 @ 10:00 pm

Two major voices in Milwaukee’s gay community are joining forces and collaborating with Milwaukee’s oldest gay bar to tackle HIV and other racial and health-related disparities, while also providing a safe haven for people of color in the LGBTQ+ community in Milwaukee. The Empowering Community Action Initiative, a grassroots initiative led by queer people of color (QPOC), along with the historic gay bar This Is It! and Health Connections, Inc., are collaborating to bring Vogue Nights MKE to Milwaukee’s LGBTQ+ community. Vogue Nights MKE fuses “House” and “Ballroom” culture while also providing HIV testing and information on safer sex practices and substance abuse services. House and ballroom culture are a creative subculture that has transformed into a global phenomenon through films such as Paris is Burning and FX’s show Pose. Vogue Nights MKE will be a safe space, providing the QPOC community with an affirming environment to build community and cultivate healthy lifestyle choices. It will be a monthly event series that will allow QPOC to compete in ballroom competitions, including categories such as voguing, dance, and modeling.
