About the Event

What is performance and how does it open up spaces for freedom? Join us for Icon Michael Roberson’s newest production that presents an intergenerational history of the Black LGBTQ+ house ballroom community, beyond Madonna’s vogue, Paris is Burning, Pose, and Legendary. Weaving together Black art forms of oratory, vogue & performance, poetry & song, this production presents an ode to the Black gay / queer man, his perseverance, his strength, and his resilience in the face of struggle and catastrophe. Featuring Icon Michael Roberson, Icon Pony Zion, Legendary Khaos Lanvin, Ka’don Miyake Mugler, Le’Rone Bennett 007, Rev. Ken Alston Jr., Brad Walrond, and Ricky Tucker.

This program is Co-organized by ArtsWestchester, Bethany Arts Community, The LOFT: LGBTQ+ Center, and the Ossining Juneteenth Council
