This Saturday is the 16th Annual Latex Ball in New York City, an event not to be missed. You can be guaranteed a full scale production of creativity, glamour and community involvement. The theme is "Futuristic Carnival: The Show Most Go On". Here are the details:
Saturday, August 25, 2007
The Roseland Ballroom
239 West 52nd Street, NYC
(between Broadway and 8th Avenue)
DOORS OPEN AT 7PM
Ball starts at 9:30pm
I know some people have emailed me about others balls I have mentioned, wondering why it started so late and why I didn't inform them balls take three hours to start. With that said -- you decide the best time to attend! Nonetheless, if you are in New York City and haven't to a ball, or even been to a ball, this is the function to attend. Here are some of the categories you can look forward to:
Femme Queen (transgender women) Performance
Bedazzled Animal Print Effect. You have been genetically spliced. Bring it with your dainty human ways and your animalistic moves.
Femme Queen (transgender women) Face
Your FACE is the future- By 2050 most of the earth's land will be under water due to Global Warming. Fire and water will conquer the earth. You are the last woman to be crowned Queen of the new World. Bring us that look that will show us why your beauty made you Queen of the New World.
Female Figure Runway
The Futuristic Cotton Candy Girl- You've been playing in the carnival all day and now you need a break, a candy break! Bring it in a Futuristic Cotton Candy Girl effect and pump with your sweets.
Also, congrats to the House of Blahnik who awarded their first Tony Milan Scholarship to Ajmar Millar known by his House/Ball friends as “Ajay Balenciaga". Ajay is pursuing his undergraduate education at Morehouse College, in Atlanta (GA) where he is a graduating senior and is an active member of Atlanta’s Ballroom community. Congrats to Ajay and everyone involved with the creation of Tony Milan Scholarship. This directly challenges that the ballroom scene is just a hot-bed of negativity!
For more information about the Tony Milan Scholarship and how to apply in the future, please feel free to email the House of Blahnik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
