Dress your finest, come learn the moves – then take to the floor… 

“A family vogue ball is a vital space for gay, trans, non-conforming and questioning young people to see positive, celebratory representations of themselves. Nothing else comes close to its outright celebration of fashion, music, dance, individuality, aspiration and creativity. But it is also an eye-opening and magical experience for all families to explore different identities and ways of being outside of the mainstream, through movement, dance and costume.” – Darren Pritchard, House Mother: House of Ghetto

House of Ghetto Family Vogue Ball 

Produced by Switchflicker Productions

Commissioned by Z-arts, Homotopia and Black Gold Arts. Supported by Arts Council England and Manchester Independents.
