The new documentary film Kiki tells the story of those people, and the lives they lead as members of New York’s underground Ballroom community. Kiki picks up over two decades after Paris is Burning introduced mainstream audiences to the performative practice of voguing and balls. This update to the genre focuses specifically on the Kiki scene, which “was created within the LGBTQ youth-of- color community as a peer-led group offering alternative family systems (“houses”), HIV awareness teaching and testing, and performances geared towards self-agency” according to the film’s website. These performances of gender, which often include “stylized femininity,” are put on display at local balls. What separates Kiki from Paris is Burning is that the story is finally told to the outside by those on the inside.
