Penetrating the tight-knit community of minority drag queens living in New York City, Jennie Livingston’s acclaimed documentary offers an early glimpse at the art of “voguing,” the underground dance style later popularized by Madonna in her hit song. The film also explores issues such as racism, homophobia and AIDS, while offering a detailed examination of the intricate Ball culture, in which queens are judged for their style and expression.
